Three! It is much more than one, and a little bit less than four.
An agreement on creation and development of Medical technology cluster of Moscow region was signed on 29th of September, 2016. It happened in Special Economic Zone "Dubna" during the VII-th All-Russian research and practice conference "Pricnciples and mechanisms of national innovation system establishment.
Being the guest of the conference, Mystra's Investment Director Rihards Svelpe participated a tour around the SEZ. According to what he has seen, he could affirm that the package for the cluster participants is performed on the world class level of quality. The business incubator as a whole feels like a modern and challenging working space, and, if a company is ready to settle down in Dubna SEZ, all the necessary components for the development of engineering and manufacture on preferential terms are present.
One of the most remarkable parts of the tour, was an excursion to the two medical disposables manufacture sites. Mystra always is interested in medical disposables, and the products from the one site are well-known in our company, and are in our offer for a long time already. So, we had a possibility to check the declared quality of the goods right in the place where their life-cycle begins.
The comparison between two different manufacturer sites was also educative. One of them was established right after the fall of the Soviet Union, and no modernisation efforts were taken during the following years, so some spirit of dilapidation was in the air. The another one turned out to be neatly fresh with a new Italian design.
But! Both of them are situated in classified clean rooms, which correspond the international standards. The feeling of dilapidation or freshness is just an emotion. And more than that - we suppose that the production costs are lower in the post-soviet version. So, that's the question - what is "good" here, what is "bad", and which approach is better for business?
No, not that Mystra which looks over the orange orchards from the slope of white-headed Taygetos. Our Mystra. One year ago, in the day of Summer Feast of St.Nicholas, Richards and me have signed the protocol of creation of the new company. As any year on Earth, this year also went away rapidly. But - it was quite interesting)
Many thanks to everyone who took care and is taking care of our baby - to Richards, Sergey, Nikolay, Maria, Oleg, Svetlana, Maximus, Anastasia, and especially Thorin (Alexey). Our warmest regards to our dear partners and to our respectful opponents ;) Where would we be without you...)
Well, we should celebrate it... I wish we have time)
Yesterday, as we were sitting in our Moscow control panel (ivory tower?), we were complaining that the gates once again are working in a strange way. And wondering why a busy area under our window was empty.
And then two large black cars drive in, the first one - with a black flag (not with Russian, as in the photo), and an SUV with four flashing lights, obviously security. We think - who is our next guest? And then we realized that it was the President of Russian Federation. Then, quite quickly we realized that today is the annual "Direct Line", and it is always held in our WTC.
Those of us who were engaged in car travels during work time, beheld the president's motorcade at a traffic light as much as two times.
As for the press conference, it was later available on the internet. Most talks were about Turkey, not about the healthcare. Well, it’s understandable.
Next year we will participate. ;)
If you turn to page 11 of April's number of Pharmaceutical Herald Weekly, you will find there the CEO of MYSTRA engineering Nikolay Zinenko giving his comments on crisis in an interview with Oksana Baranova. We can congratulate the Herald on their efficiency - its been less than two weeks since the interview turned into the publication. We've overlooked this material most probably due to the May's celebrations and did not react in a timely way, however – it's very nice.
MYSTRA engineering together with the leading Russian bariatric surgeons - professor Vadim Fedenko, MD, PhD (in the head photo) and Vladimir Evdoshenko, MD, PhD starts the development of an innovative product for surgical obesity treatment - adjustable perigastric balloon APGB.
Clinical trials will be held in Central Research Institute of Gastroenterology under the supervision of Head of the Institute professor Igor Khatkov, MD, PhD. Personal commitment in the investigation will take associate professor Rashid Askerkhanov, PhD.
The treatment with APGB bases on the principle of restriction - filling of the inner part of the stomach, and thus reducing its capacity. Due to the possibility to fill the balloon with liquid, the device can be precisely regulated, which helps to increase or reduce the restrictive effect that the system provides. The implantation procedure is easy and safe, because it does not require inner organs opening or intersection, and is performed laparoscopically.
APGB implantation allows to perform precise regulation of the gastric lumen, which makes the result more predictable compared to gastroplication and implantation of intragastric balloon.
After the placement of APGB into the upper part of the stomach, a slot-like lumen is formed, providing a more comfortable nourishment compared to adjustable gastric band.
Important to mention that with APGBexcessive constriction of the band), displacement and migration of the device into the lumen of the stomach, is minimal or is absent.
The operation of APGB implantation is reversible.
In perspective, after the conduction of further clinical trials, the APGB treatment may become a great alternative to the adjustable gastric band and gastroplication.

MYSTRA engineering begins the revival of native farming sector and a new era in Russian equestrian sport!
We've started putting to production the long-awaited moccasin shoe for horse hoof disease curing!
Every horse owner has come across the problem of pododermatitis, or panaritium. This disease can occur not only in horse stables with poor hygienic conditions, but it may also be a problem of quite clean and well-groomed horses, as a result of an injury, change in a diet or lowered immunity. As a result of an inflammation, a deformation of a corneum layer may occur, which may lead to founder and full disablement. One of the necessary elements of a successful healing is local use of medications on the whole hoof!
In order for the medication to be applied to the whole injured part of the hoof, you need to fix the medication-saturated cloth or bind the hoof with a plastic bag with medical solution. Of course, it is evident that lifespan of a plastic bag on a horse's hoof is miserable, which leads to medication being spilled, hence, you should start all over. Binding of the whole hoof is not permanent either. The solution is a polymer moccasin shoe for horses!
Just put on this moccasin shoe on the hoof of your faithful companion and pour the medication inside. Or maybe you want to cool or make warm your horse's legs? Just fill up the shoue with cold or hot water! Wide range of sizes allows to choose ideal moccasins both for a round-bellied pony and a giant draught horse. Strong and elastic, tear-proof structure of polymer on one hand - provides long-term application of medications and endurance of the moccasin itself, on the other hand - keeps the hoof safe from bigger injury.
In our moccasin shoes any horse both a mustang and a White Eagle chieftain! ;)
