Lali Dateshidze, Manager of Aversi Training Program, presented an interesting report at the conference:
- My work was about the pharmacotherapy of the hemorrhoid disease accompanied with irritable intestine syndrome, In particular, the effectiveness of the medicine Flebil. The fact is that there is a not very rare connection between hemorrhoid disease and irritated intestinal syndrome, which is the basis of close interdependence of the causes and symptoms of these two conditions. Irritated intestinal syndrome has a very interesting pathophysiological mechanism, which was recently studied by Chinese scientists. According to the study, mast cell stabilization may be a potential therapeutic target of irritated intestinal syndrome. The vegetative components - flavonoids, which are included in the Flebil, have a special effect on the function and stabilization of mast cells.
The presentation caused great interest among the attendees. The reporter answered all the questions. Elene Tsitsilashvili, Head of Technological Department of "Aversi-Rational", spoke about the necessity of introduction of GMP (Good manufacturing practice) standard in the country, which is one of the conditions for ensuring high quality of life for citizens.
"Aversi-Rational" from the day of foundation works in correspondence with the European GMP standard. The company is constantly upgrading the quality system to correspond to the new requirements of the standard. In order to improve the quality of medicines and export of Georgian products, it is necessary to harmonize and implement European GMP and ICH (the international council for harmonization).
