Head of the laboratory of the Institute of Biophysics gave an interview to ATV 

Head of the laboratory Ecological biophysics at the Institute of Biophysics of ANAS, Dr. Biology, Prof. Tokay Huseynov gave an interview to ATV Qərargah.

Professor T. Huseynov said that people infected with COVID-19 are also affected by environmental problems. For this purpose, he recommended taking one of the environmental factors selenium. He noted that selenium deficiency in the human diet can lead to the development of the most common viral diseases today.

The scientist added that the a lack of a chemical element of selenium (Se) in  the diet can lead to the development of viral diseases that are widespread today.

Recall that at the suggestion of the staff of the Institute of Biophysics, one of the chemical elements selenium is already included in the treatment Protocol of the Administration of the Regional Medical Divisions (TABIB).

Studies of employees of the Institute of Biophysics against COVID-19  is included in the treatment protocol TABIB

Research carried out on the basis of existing data by employees of the Institute of Biophysics of ANAS- Prof. Tokay Huseynov and Ph.D. Ruhiyya Guliyeva on the impact of one of the environmental factors (selenium status) on the development and pathogenicity of HIV / AIDS, which is part of the COVID-19 genome, is included in the Protocol of the Administration of the Regional Medical Divisions (TABIB).

The results of studies aimed at finding methods of controlling virus COVID-19, have shown that a deficiency of selenium (Se) in human food, one of the chemical elements, can lead to the development of the most common viral diseases of our time.

Studies have shown that  the sensitivity to the virus COVID-19 and its implications seriously depend on the degree of selenium supply in the body, and the sodium Selenite itself is effective in the treatment of this disease.

Coronavirus identified six separate lines

An analysis of the structure of more than 10 thousand samples of a new type of coronavirus from different regions of the world showed that six of its varieties are now spreading around the world.

“We created an algorithm that can quickly be sequenced and group complete genomes of pathogens of rapidly spreading epidemics. Using this technique, we studied 10,400 strains of SARS-CoV-2 and found that there are six clonal groups of this virus, that circulate around the world, “scientists write.

From the first days of the appearance of an outbreak of coronavirus infection, scientists have been trying to understand in which direction and how its pathogen, the SARS-CoV-2 virus, is evolving. It is now known that it accumulates mutations at about the same rate as the influenza pathogen. However, how these mutations affect the infectiousness and other properties of the virus, scientists do not yet reliably know.

Selenium is effective against COVID-19 and other viral diseases

Employees of the Institute of Biophysics of ANAS – Dr. Biology Tokay Huseynov and Ph.D. Ruhiyya Guliyeva conducted a study on the impact of one of the environmental factors (selenium status) on the development and pathogenicity of HIV / AIDS, which is part of the COVID-19 genome.

Numerous studies have shown that a deficiency of selenium (Se) in human food, one of the chemical elements, can lead to the development of the most common viral diseases of our time.

Dangerous viral diseases such as Hantavirus, Coxsackie (Hantavirus), avian influenza, Ebola, as well as other viruses that cause serious damage to the cardiovascular system have symptoms similar to COVID-19. Damage to the heart muscle, systemic hypercoagulability of blood, which is considered a threat to diabetics, as well as platelet compression, which causes sudden respiratory arrest, etc. especially dangerous. In all cases, selenium deficiency is observed in patients.

Institute of Biophysics proposes to discuss a number of priority areas during the special quarantine regime

The new form of coronavirus COVID-19 has spread, it can be said, around the world and has an impact on all spheres of life. The biggest difficulty in preventing this pandemic is not the high mortality rate from the virus. Conversely, the death rate from COVID-19 is much lower than from the coronavirus MERS-CoV, which had previously raged. The main difficulty is that this virus spreads very quickly, and therefore the number of infected people is much higher than the previous epidemics …

In the world practice, distance education is carried out using various methods and tools. At ANAS, mainly “synchronous” distance education is preferred. Because this is the most widely used learning method for continuing education. In this way, communication between teachers and master students is carried out in the form of online (live) teleconferences or webinars in virtual classrooms.

It was noted that the most used programs are Zoom, GoTomeeting, Vebex and Skype. These are modern communication applications that are an easy, reliable cloud platform for mobile devices, desktops, video and audio conferencing between smartphones, collaboration, discussions and webinars. Despite the high level of organization of education, it is not convenient to conduct a number of lessons at a distance. Thus, it is important to have appropriate laboratory conditions for the implementation of laboratory classes provided in the curriculum. If we take into account that the master’s degree of ANAS is of scientific master studies, from this point of view, high-level teaching of laboratory classes is of special importance for master students. Taking this into account, laboratory classes are planned to be held at the end of the academic year.

Considering the importance of scientific and pedagogical practice, second-year master students were involved in distance practice accompanied by internship supervisors, in addition to participating in online classes, they also passed at least 2 test lessons.

F. Kazimov said that one of the vital issues in the process of distance education is the implementation of quality control of lessons. The technical features of the programs used allow to control the lessons conducted remotely. Employees of the Office of Science and Education of the Presidium of ANAS and education departments of relevant institutes join the classes according to the established schedule and control the process, at the same time, actively participate in the organization of education.

“One of the main priorities of ANAS is to train highly qualified scientific personnel through doctoral and dissertation studies. It is known that the process of admission to doctoral and dissertation programs for 2019 under the Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Science program has been completed. The dissertation topics of the doctoral students and dissertators who have successfully passed the competitions in the direction of topical problems in the relevant specialties have been submitted to the scientific councils of the departments, – said F. Kazimov.
