Scientists are looking for new approaches to the treatment of socially significant diseases

New methodologies for the application of natural products of plant and animal origin from Bulgaria to support the therapy of some infectious, malignant and neurodegenerative diseases are developed by scientists from 7 institutes of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and 5 higher schools. Scientific cooperation is within the framework of the first national scientific program for biomedical research in Bulgaria "Innovative Low-Toxic Biologically Active Means for Precision Medicine (BioActiveMed)". Expectations, after its implementation, are related to developing new approaches in the treatment of socially significant diseases and reducing the cost of their treatment. Scientists from seven institutes of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences participate in the Biomedical Research Program. Extracts from natural sources (such as herbs and snail mucus) will be used in the preparation [...]
