The funds will be received by the Morozov City Children’s Clinical Hospital and the Scientific and Practical Center for Specialized Medical Care for Children named after V.F. Voyno-Yasenetsky.

The Moscow government allocated grants to the Morozov City Children’s Clinical Hospital (346 million rubles) and the Scientific and Practical Center for Specialized Medical Care for Children named after V.F. Voyno-Yasenetsky (116 million rubles). These funds (a total of 462 million rubles) are intended for the treatment of children with cancer using innovative technologies that are not included in the standards of compulsory medical insurance of compulsory medical insurance and high-tech medical care. The corresponding resolution was signed Sergei Sobyanin.

Since 2014, the Center for Pediatric Hematology and Oncology with 329 beds has been operating at the Morozov Hospital. Children with malignant diseases of the hematopoietic tissue, solid tumors and severe anemia are treated here.

In 2018, the hospital opened the only department of bone marrow and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for children in the city healthcare. Thanks to previously allocated grants, it was possible to increase the number of operations performed by 6.5 times – from 13 in 2018 to 85 in 2021. The grant covers the costs of searching, selecting, activating an unrelated donor (examination and bone marrow sampling in a hospital) and transporting the bone marrow.

The grant also finances specific immunotherapy for children and purchases modern high-tech equipment for molecular genetic research. They allow you to individually select specialized treatment and predict its tolerability.

As part of the Scientific and Practical Center for Specialized Medical Care for Children named after V.F. Voyno-Yasenetsky has two oncology departments with 87 beds. Specialists use innovative technologies of oncosurgery: water jet dissection, plasma surgery, thermal ablation. Some of them were first applied in children’s oncological practice in our country and in the world.
