November 7, 2013 Institute of Cellular Therapy and Coordination Centre for Transplantation of Organs, Tissues and Cells of the Ministry of Health held a scientific-practical conference with international participation, which was devoted to the use of cellular technology in obstetrics, gynecology, neonatology and pediatric neurology.

Uptodate development of science in the field of physiology of stem cells of different origin, as well as technologies for the production, cultivation, genetic transformation, and cryopreservation of cells and tissues contributed to the emergence of new, previously unavailable methods for diagnosis and treatment of obstetric and gynecological pathology, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy and neonatal cerebral palsy.

It is known that pregnancy disorders, congenital diseases and malformations of the fetus, as well as obstetric aggression lead to such serious consequences in the newborn, as hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, which in future becomes the cause of cerebral palsy. The use of stem cells of different origin, including autologous and allogeneic cord blood, which contains stem cells of various types, in experimental and clinical practice has demonstrated positive results. Widespread introduction into clinical practice of the methods of cell therapy will give physicians new treatment of socially significant diseases, namely infertility, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, and cerebral palsy.

Topics of the conference were:

  • Cell technologies in the treatment of consequences of obstetric aggression.
  • Placental stem cell markers in the diagnosis of pre-eclampsia.
  • Stem cells of the placenta.
  • Stem cells and microchimerism.
  • Stem cells and reproduction.
  • Clinical use of umbilical cord blood in hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy in newborns.
  • The experimental data on the use of different types of stem cells in models of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy newborns.
  • Clinical data of cord blood use in children with cerebral palsy .
  • Biotechnological approaches in working with cells of different origin for use in research and clinical practice.

Besides leading national experts, internationally renowned scientists, including Professor James Carroll (USA ), Prof. MinYung Kim (Korea)  gave lectures at the conference at the invitation of the Institute of Cell Therapy. Dr. Dzhiun Lee (Singapore) and Dr. Dariusz Boruczkowski (Poland) also shared experience of clinical application of stem cells.

The conference is included in the “Register of congresses, symposia and scientific conferences to be held in 2013 of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Center of Scientific Medical Information and Patent and Licensing Work of the Scientific Coordination Control Department of NAMS”  under the number 173.
