A considerable experience in application of cryosurgery in various fields of experimental and clinical medicine is accumulated at the department (see Grischenko V.I., Sandomirsky B.P., Kolontay Yu.Yu. et al. Practical Cryomedicne/Edited by Grischenko V.I. and Sandomirsky B.P. Kiev: Zdorovya, 1987.- 248p.).
Among the results of R&D activity of the department the following may be emphasized:
Biopreparations on the base of newborn piglets' and mature pigs' tissues for correcting metabolic disorders in an organism have been developed.
There was elaborated the technology for cryopreservation of newborn piglets' pancreas islet tissue, providing the integrity for insulin-producing function of cells under culturing conditions, as well as cryotechnology of freeze-drying of bovine colostrum (patent 63455 Ukraine, IPC7 F26B5/06/ The method of bovine colostrum lyophilization).
In the experiments anti-diabetic effect of protein-free extract of the new born piglets' pancreas.
There was developed the method of obtaining the extracts, containing nucleotides and low molecular compounds of peptide origin, from xenotissues and organs (Patent 64381 A Ukraine, IPC7 A61K35/12).
