Research experience:

Till 2007 I worked with Z. Chapichadze, MD, PhD (Drug Agency, Ministry of Health, Tbilisi, Georgia), M. Pruidze, MD, PhD (Centre of Chinese Medicine, Tbilisi, Georgia), and T. Tchelidze, MD (CRO "Evidence", Tbilisi, Georgia) and other members of Neuroasthma Group. Since 1994 we performed observational clinical studies and double-blind placebo-controlled randomized trials concerning use of antiasthmatic drugs for treatment of bronchial asthma. Our trials showed high antiasthmatic activity of antiepileptic drugs in adults and in children with asthma. We also investigated the frequency of EEG and neurological signs in patients with asthma, in collaboration with Prof. V. Maloletnev, MD, PhD (Department of Human Psychophysiology, Beritashvili Institute of Physiology, Tbilisi, Georgia), and frequency of breath-holding spells in anamnesis of children with asthma. In experimental studies we investigated the influence of antiepileptic drugs on Herxheimer microshock and anaphylactic shock in Guinea pigs. We received silver sponsorship for presenting of our data in ERS Congresses from European Respiratory Society in 2004 and 2005.

I am Pharmacovigilance Senior Consultant in Georgian Drug Agency since 2004. In 1997-2004 I worked as Senior Specialist in National Drug Monitoring Center of Pharmacovigilance, Tbilisi, Georgia. You can find my experience in this field below.

In 1998 -1999 I worked in scientific cooperation with Prof. Sh. Bibileishvili, MD, PhD (Sarajishvili Institute of Experimental and Clinical Neurology, Tbilisi, Georgia), and searched epidemiology, clinical signs and outcome in patients with ischemic stroke and sleep apnea.

In 1995 -1997 in collaboration with Prof. N. Mitagvaria, PhD (Department of Metabolic Maintenance of the Brain Functions, Beritashvili Institute of Physiology, Tbilisi, Georgia), I searched the surface tension of blood during cerebral ischemia and found that blood surface tension was increased in patients with ischemic stroke.

In 1994 - 1995 I worked in collaboration with K. Gambashidze, MD, PhD (Department of Pathophysiology, Tbilisi State Medical University), and researched rheological properties of blood, including surface tension of blood, in rats with Walker carcinoma and in mice with Erlich carcinoma. We also investigated the influence of non-ionogenic surfactants on blood rheology and on survivability of experimental animals.

In 1993 - 1998 I worked in Scientific Research Institute of Pediatrics (Tbilisi, Georgia) and researched EEG-computer topography (brain-mapping) in children with tic hyperkinesia, Tourette syndrome and nocturnal enuresis. We also use antagonists of opiate analgetics for therapy of tics, Tourette syndrome and nocturnal enuresis, and performed observational studies in this direction. We found that naloxone can reduce freqiency and intensity of tics, and also can reduce the frequency of episodes of night enuresis. We also found that EEG disturbances in these children are frequent, but non-specific.

1988 - 1993: My PhD thesis was related to experimental use of fluorochemical "artificial blood" in therapy of experimental models of acute cerebral ishemia. Experimental studies were performed in collaboration with Prof. N. Mitagvaria, PhD (Department of Metabolic Maintenance of the Brain Functions, Beritashvili Institute of Physiology, Tbilisi, Georgia). We studied several models of ishemia in rabbits and rats and found that fluorochemical blood substitutes improved rheological properties of blood, microcirculation and brain supply with oxygen during brain ischemia.
