Long-term German-Russian initiative intended for experience exchange between allergologists started in Saint-Petersburg.

The first step in development of this initiative was the one-day medical congress "Allergy – a growing burden for people in Russia" where reports were given by leading specialists of public healthcare of Russia and Germany, among them: D. Sc. Med., V. L. Vanevskii Department of Anaesthesiology and Reanimatology, I. I. Mechinkov North-Western State Medical University Prof. Konstantin M. Lebedinskii;, Head of European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF*),Prof. Dr. med. Dr. h. c. Torsten Zuberbier; President Russian Public Health Association Prof. Andrey Demin; Prof. Dr. med. Karl-Christian Bergmann representing Allergie-Centrum-Charité, Charité-Universitätsmedizin, Berlin.

Doctors – allergologists-immunologists, dermatologists, otolaryngologists and representatives of insurance companies have exchanged scientific conclusions and experience from day-to-day practice. Special attention was paid to information about researches carried out in the area of allergy, results of latest researches, possible causes of occurrence as well as modern methods of diagnostics and treatment of different types of allergy, including respiratory, skin and occupational allergies.

Open discussion "Allergy – a growing burden for people in Russia. What can be done?" took place within the Medical Congress. Practicing doctors, representatives of leading insurance companies of Saint-Petersburg, allergy-sufferers as well as lecturers and final-year students of the medical faculty and faculty for psychology of the Saint-Petersburg State University were active participants of the discussion.

European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF) and OJSC "Ust-Luga Oil" acted as organizers of the event.

"The decision to support ECARF's initiative is not just a general human mission but also expression of our attitude towards the social responsibility of business in whole. Over 600 people are employed by the Company for the moment, the majority work in the port where a coal, sulfur and other terminals are functioning in immediate proximity to our Terminal i.e. the surrounding area is quite aggressive and, certainly, we are concerned about this problem. Work of about half of our employees is assuming a close contact with oil products and we do a lot in order to prevent possible consequences: workers having harmful labour conditions are getting extra payment and additional vacation days. The Company compensates up to 50% of costs for sanatorium and resort therapy, voluntary medical insurance policies are given to all employees in order to provide a possibility of contacting medical specialists of a high level in due time.
We can’t fail to agree that for all industrially advanced regions the problem of allergy is getting more and more topical, and we see one of possibilities of minimizing related to it inconveniences in, among other things, increase of general awareness", said Director General of OJSC "Ust-Luga Oil" Konstantin Khamlay.

According to President of Russian Public Health Association Prof. Andrey Demin:

"Necessity of discussing this subject is long overdue. Regretfully, allergy-sufferers are often missing sufficient and reliable information about what can be done for successful treatment. In this respect, the event organized with the support of OJSC “Ust-Luga Oil was very well-timed. I am sure that this is just a starting point in implementation of the long-term project where the goal is to improve the quality of life".

Russian version of the ECARF web site was made available on the day of the congress. Having visited the site, allergy-sufferers will be able to receive full information about main types of allergy, their symptoms, latest methods of therapy and practical day-to-day tips.
