The collaboration of Astra Zeneca with located in St. Petersburg institute will consist in identification of potentially drug-sensitising gene mutations occuring in various tumors. Petrov Institute drew attention of AZ mostly due to its rich cancer research history, which dates back to 1927, when prof. N. N. Petrov founded in Leningrad (a Bolshevik name of St. Petersburg) the Research Institute of Oncology within the frames of multidisciplinary hospital named after I.I.Mechnikov. From 1966 this institute is named after its remarkable founder and first director, who was founder and initiator of native oncology, as well.


Astra Zeneca also appreciated Europe’s largest tumor archive, which was collected in the Petrov Institute. A huge work of Russian scientists led to library consisting over 1 million samples, gathered from 270,000 patients! New research possibilities thanks to data generated from these archives are undisputed.


“The R&D eco-systems of Russia and other emerging economies such as China, Brazil, and India are becoming increasingly important sources of innovation in medical science. We believe that partnering and collaborating with biotech companies and best-in-class academic institutions like the Petrov Institute is a central element of our R&D strategy to make a significant contribution to the delivery of innovative medicines for patients, both in Russia and across the globe,” Ajay Gautam, AZ’s executive director, Asia and Emerging Markets R&D, said in a statement.


Each such information needs to be welcomed with hope, since cancer is one of the biggest killers of the world. Every year it claims 7 million lives. Russia also should be aware of the huge scale of this problem, since in the biggest country of the world almost 300,000 people die yearly because of cancer, which currently is the second biggest source of deaths in this area.

I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Mohammed, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mohammed's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr Mohammed, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man...
