Valenta Held Two Scientific Symposiums in Neuropsychology in Kazan
Valenta organized two scientific symposiums for neuropsychologists within the III Russian International Congress «Cerebrovascular Pathology and Stroke» held in Kazan on October 6-10, 2014.
On October 6-7, 2014, Valenta held two scientific symposiums for neuropsychologists: «Strategy and Tactics of Fight for Mind» and «Happiness: Is It a Good Health and Bad Memory?! Modern Opportunities to Raise the Patient’s Life Quality». Both symposiums took place in Kazan within the III Russian International Congress «Cerebrovascular Pathology and Stroke» organized by the National Association against Stroke (NABI).
Within the first symposium, Valenta presented «Strategy and Tactics of Fight for Mind» book, where the main principles of rational pharmacotherapy for cognitive and affective disorders were stated. The authors of the book — S.A.Rumyantseva, D.M.Sci., Professor at the Department of Neurology of RNRMU, and V.A.Stupin, M.D., Professor, Head of the Department of Surgery of RNRMU, — believe that the fight, which healthcare professionals currently lead for the patient’s state of mind and good mood, would be impossible without medicines aimed to normalize neuromediatory balance. Within the event, the leading healthcare professionals discussed opportunities and prospects of approaches applied to treatment of neurologic and somatoneurologic diseases.
The results of Platon non-interventional all-Russia observational program were announced at «Happiness: Is It a Good Health and Bad Memory?! Modern Opportunities to Raise the Patient’s Life Quality» symposium. The observation was accomplished among the patients of advanced age with cognitive disorders co-morbid to arterial hypertension. When treating cognitive disorders in such patients, it is critical to prevent both destabilization of their condition and side-effects (raise of arterial pressure, hypertonic crisis, etc.). Valenta’s observational program made possible to focus doctors’ attention on this group of patients and on ways to improve diagnostics and life quality.
Sergey Morozov, Head of the Directorate for Neuropsychological Portfolio Promotion, Member of the Management Board, OAO «Valenta Pharm»: «Creation of innovations for health is a priority in Valenta’s activity. In particular, communication with doctors is very valuable for us — it is aimed to improve diagnostics and to raise the quality of medical care in the spheres of psychiatry and neurology. We believe that transfer of knowledge about innovations in the field of neuropsychology and their implementation in the routine practice will improve life quality of the Russian patients.»
As of today, about 9 million people1 in Russia suffer from cerebrovascular diseases and their prevalence steadily grows. Cerebrovascular diseases hold the second place in the structure of the general death rate of population (23.4%)2. Such a disappointing statistics makes us consider the necessity to develop measures to combat neuropsychological diseases.
Innovations in the field of neuropsychology that Valenta has presented at the symposiums include both a diagnostic toolkit, and a portfolio of innovative medicines able to improve the life quality for patients with cerebrovascular diseases.
