Our journal is focused on clinical pharmacologists, specialists of expert organizations, workers centers preclinical and clinical trials of medicinal products; employees of regulatory and Supervisory organizations and institutions in the field of pharmaceutical industry and Russian Ministry of health; researchers, medical and pharmaceutical workers of the organisations and institutions of the Ministry of health; experts of the scientific organizations of RAS and other researchers in the field of environmental security.

The topics of published materials are limited to two branches of science - medical and biological - and they correspond to groups of scientific specialties (03.02.00 General biology, 14.03.00 Biomedical sciences, 14.04.00 Pharmaceutical sciences) in accordance with the order of the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation dated October 23, 2017 No. 1027 "On the approval of the nomenclature of scientific specialties for which science degrees are awarded" and by order of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation of December 12, 2016 No. 1586 (revised March 27, 2018) "On the approval of the rules for forming the list of peer-reviewed scientific publications."

The publication complies with modern rules and requirements of domestic and foreign legislation for peer-reviewed scientific publications.

Journal strategy

When preparing each issue, members of the editorial Board intend to take into account modern requirements for the order of qualified review, information openness and bibliometric indicators in assessing the publication activity of authors, along with other factors of the journal.

To this end, the editorial team uses rigorous: editorial, expert, and statistical review processes to evaluate manuscripts for scientific accuracy, novelty, and importance; policies and practices that ensure that authors disclose all relevant financial associations and that such associations do not in any way affect the content published by the journal.

When developing the strategy and layout of the publication, we studied and analyzed the professional materials available to us from information resources of publishers and owners of bibliographic and abstract databases-leaders of international citation systems for relevant branches of science and groups of scientific specialties.

In the course of this work, three groups of scientific specialties were identified, which, in our opinion, made it possible to create a publication's rubricator and determine its name: "Pharmacy Formulas". At the same time, we took into account the definition of pharmacy as the entire life cycle of medicines, including the creation, preclinical and clinical research, production technology, organization of pharmaceutical business, as well as issues of control and analytical research, food and environmental safety. In turn, the word "formulas" means directions, trends, trends in the development of scientific and practical areas that make up pharmacy.

We believe that through our efforts, the journal will keep healthcare and pharmaceutical industry professionals at the forefront of medical and pharmaceutical knowledge, help them deepen their understanding of new areas of interest, and provide valuable insights into scientific and practical medical and pharmaceutical activities.

Course of intrahospital coronavirus infection (COVID-19) against the background of preventive and curative administration of peptide immunotropic drugs as part of complex therapy
Petlenko S.V., Smirnov V.S., Rudenko V.V.

Due to the lack of COVID-19 specific preventive measures with a prophylactic and therapeutic (as part of complex therapy) purpose, various drugs were used as humanitarian aid from manufacturing companies to prevent influenza and SARS in St. Petersburg hospitals.

The study of Russian Scientific Research Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics named after R.R. Vreden patient treatment shows the possibility of using drugs containing a synthetic regulatory thymus peptide (L-glutamine-L-tryptophan-thymogen) as an active ingredient in a patient with an in-hospital coronavirus infection. This compound has a number of extra- and intracellular immunotropic effects of key importance in the pathogenesis of respiratory viral infections, including coronavirus etiology. The components have an indirect antiviral effect against acute respiratory viral infections, comprising COVID-19.

This led to the use of drugs containing thymogen for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. The use of immunotropic agents promoted the rapid involution in the patient of clinical, laboratory and instrumental (radiological) signs of the disease and its uncomplicated course both in the primary infection and the development of superinfection cases. The study has shown that the use for the prevention and treatment (as part of complex therapy) of drugs with immunomodulatory activity, as well as those capable of affecting various links in the pathogenesis of pulmonary lesions in coronavirus infection, seems to be highly relevant and justified.

Study of international experience in research of professional activity of pharmaceutical personnel in the context of restrictions, related to the development of the system of professional qualifications in the Russian Federation
Ivanova K.A., Ilinova J.G.

The article examines the existing restrictions associated with the development of a national system of qualifications (recognition of qualifications of qualifications internationally, the coexistence of elements of the old and new qualification systems, the gap between the labor market and the system of vocational education). It is noted that in the field of pharmacy, along with existing restrictions, the development of the industry qualifications framework is hindered by the lack of descriptions of professional activities performed by pharmaceutical personnel at the legislative level. In this regard, the authors conducted a comparative analysis of the content of groups of occupations described for pharmaceutical personnel, in accordance with the Russian Сlassifier of Occupations (as a document that is the basis for the development of the sectoral qualifications framework) with the types of activities carried out by subjects of circulation of medicines (production of medicines and pharmaceutical activities) in order to define the «boundaries of professional activity» of pharmaceutical personnel at the national level. The international experience of research of the content of professional activity of pharmaceutical personnel and the main factors contributing to the appearance of labor functions in the professional activity of pharmaceutical personnel that are not fixed at the legislative level (in accordance with the ISCO) are studied. In order to eliminate the existing restrictions that prevent the development of a unified system of professional qualifications in the field of pharmacy in the Russian Federation, the article concludes with an approach to describing the professional activities of pharmaceutical personnel used by FIP industry experts.

Malignant neoplasms of the heart, prevalence, weather mortality, median survival and survival of patients, taking into account the stage of diseases, localization and histological structure of tumors
Merabishvili V.M.

Malignant cardiac tumors are rare but dangerous tumors with a high mortality rate, not represented at the population level in any statistical collection. The study of its prevalence is possible only using the system of population cancer registries created in the world. Moreover, not at the regional level, only at the level of the federal district or the entire country. In 1993 we created the first in Russia Population-based Cancer Registry. In February 2019, it was possible to combine cancer registries of all 11 administrative territories of the North-West of Russia, with a population of more than 13 million inhabitants and a database of more than 1 million 100 thousand patients. It was only after the creation of the population cancer registry of the Northwestern Federal District that it became possible to study the patterns of prevalence and survival of patients in all tumor localizations, including, among other things, rare malignant cardiac tumors.

Chronic heart failure (CHF) is a widespread disease associated with high rates of disability and mortality, as well as a decrease in the quality of life. Moreover, the vast majority of patients are elderly and senile. Modern surgical methods of treating heart failure are able to increase the duration and quality of life of such patients, however, the need far exceeds the volume of this care, and some highly effective methods common in Western countries are still not used in Russian clinical practice.

Elderly age is a risk factor for the development of senile asthenia (frailty) and concomitant pathology. Large abdominal surgery is often contraindicated for patients with signs of senile asthenia, and the method of choice in patients with severe heart failure is the implantation of devices for long-term mechanical circulatory support (LT-MCS). After implantation of LT-MCS, a regression of signs of senile asthenia may be observed.

The topic of an integrated approach to non-drug treatment of heart failure in elderly and senile patients in Russia has not been studied enough. In particular, the implantation of LT-MCS is not used in Russian clinical practice, while in many Western countries for many years it has been the main and most effective treatment for severe heart failure. Systematization of the available up-to-date information on this topic could help increase the duration and quality of life of patients with severe heart failure.

Dorovskikh I.V., Pavlova T.A., Scheidegger J.M.

This article provides an overview of the causes and mechanisms of drug hyperprolactinemia (GP) associated with the use of antipsychotics, and describes its main clinical symptoms. The most probable factors of the high frequency of GP development that persists to date when using antipsychotics in the practice of a psychiatrist are considered. Modern methods of its prevention and correction developed by domestic and foreign researchers are presented. Emphasis is placed on the importance and necessity of careful collection of the patient's medical history, laboratory and instrumental examination, monitoring of the dynamics of hormonal indicators, correct choice of therapeutic tactics for the prevention of GP and its timely relief. The neuroendocrine profile of the latest generation of antipsychotics is considered. Special attention is paid to the partial agonist of D-2, D3-dopamine receptors – cariprazine. Based on the review of recent clinical studies, the possibilities of its use in clinical practice are considered in detail, and the neuroendocrine profile of the drug is presented. The prospects of its use as a corrector of GP associated with the treatment of mental disorders with other antipsychotics are evaluated.

Kholodkevich S.V., Kuznetsova T.V., Kirin M.P., Smirnov I.S., Rudakova O.A., Lyubimtsev V.A., Manvelova A.B., Susloparova O.N., Perelygin V.V., Sakharova O.A.

The paper presents the data obtained in the study of the health of the ecosystems in a number of recreational areas of the Black Sea and the Eastern Gulf of Finland. Prompt assessment of the health of the ecosystems was carried out by testing the health of adult bivalve mollusks inhabiting them, using the functional load method based on the analysis of their heart rate measured by a fiber-optic bioelectronic system. The goal of the study is to test the innovative bioindication technology developed earlier by the authors on the basis of the above-mentioned method in the regional programs for environmental monitoring of the ecosystems of coastal marine and freshwater recreational water areas (using the example of a number of water areas of Sevastopol, as well as several freshwater areas of the Kurortniy District of St. Petersburg. It has been established that the functional state of mollusks may serve as an indicator of excessive pollution of coastal waters by the objects that discharge insufficiently treated wastewater from their local treatment facilities, including household wastewater. The technology applied in this study for the assessment of functional state of local species of molluscs may be effectively used to solve the problems of early diagnostics of alterations in the health status of coastal aquatic ecosystems and contribute to ensuring the ecological safety of recreational water areas, serving as an infobase for the development of science-based environmental management decisions. Taking into account a high expressiveness and easy-to-use technology applied in the study (which does not require expertise for its practical implementation), this technology may be considered as the best available technology for biomonitoring the water quality of recreational waters in Russia.

Laser synthesis of nanomaterials to create a new family of electrochemical microbiosensors
Kochemirovskaya S.V., Novomlinsky M.O., Fogel A.A., Kochemirovsky V.A.

A brief review of modern methods for creating materials for enzymeless microbiosensors intended for express analysis of the content of components of biological fluids, including human blood, has been made. New directions of the synthesis of such materials have been described: laser ablation (PLD) and laser-induced deposition (LCLD). The comparison of laser methods for the synthesis of materials of non-enzymatic microbiosensors with the known methods for creating nanostructured materials has been carried out. Using bimetallic LCLD microtracks as an example, the mechanism of enhancing the electrochemical response of the sensor to the content of glucose and hydrogen peroxide in complex organic and biological mixtures has been shown. It is associated with the creation of nano- and microstructured materials with a highly developed surface, on which there are extended boundaries of the interphase contact zones. This creates numerous activated acid-base centers. They facilitate the transfer of charge from the oxidizing agent to the reducing agent in the solution in contact with the sensor surface. A comparison of the sensory properties of microcomposite bimetallic deposits synthesized by the laser method and their analogs synthesized by traditional methods has been carried out. The advantages of laser methods for the synthesis of microcomposite sensor-active materials are discussed: the miniature size of the sensors, the possibility of using inexpensive metals instead of precious ones, the environmental friendliness of the methods, and the absence of the need to pre-activate the surface

Review and revision of the tribe Baphieae Yakovl. (Fabaceae)
Gonharov M., Yakovlev G.P.

The article gives an overview of the small and archaic tribe Baphieae (Fabaceae, Fabales). The study is devoted to the taxonomic revision of the Baphieae tribe and and the phylogenetic relationships within the group based on the morphological, anatomical, palynological and molecular characteristics. It was carried out on the basis of studying about 5,000 herbarium leaves in 12 European and African botanical institutions. The study was performed using the morphological-geographical and molecular-phylogenetic analysis methods. The article provides information on the morphological features of the species included in the tribe, their geographical distribution and chemical composition. The results of phylogenetic analysis have been presented. According to it, it can be argued that the tribe Baphieae is a monophyletic group occupying a relatively isolated position among the subfamily of moths, based on morphological and molecular characteristics. The proposals for a new structure of the tribe have been made. The identification of several phylogenetic lineages within the tribe and the basal position of the genus Dalhousiea have been substantiated. Further studies have been identified.
