Axar.az reports the interview with Nargiz Yahyayeva who is the chief of Diagnose Center at Biology Medicine Clinic as well as the student and the laboratory assistant of professor Afiq Bardali.
-Nargiz khanim, please, introduce yourself.
-I graduated from Medical University in 2010 with the doctor-laboratory assistant major. Then I continued my education in Turkey. Unfortunately, we have less people who had qualified in this sphere that is why I decided to have education in Turkey. The qualified Azerbaijanis were abroad at that time. In 2012 I studied Afiq Bardali’s molecular genetics lessons at Egey University in Turkey. After that I qualified in medicine-genetics sphere at Manisa Jalal Bayar University. I am a doctor and laboratory assistant in Azerbaijan right now.
What does your clinic make different from others?
“Afgen” genetic center founded in 2011. In 2012, it was moved to Biological Medicine Clinic. Our laboratory focuses on genetic analysis. According to the analysis we hold consultations and put diagnosis. We define people who suffer from disease and we help them to have appropriate cure. As we know genetic diseases can not be cured completely but it is possible to prevent them. In this case pregnant women should have blood check-up in order to define the feature of the genetic disease in mothers’ womb and to have healthy generation. Our hospital is not only laboratory but also center. The center has two sections: cytogenetic and molecular.
Cytogenetic is your sphere and it has not improved widely in Azerbaijan.
In the cytogenetic section, chromosomes are analyzed. The other name of it is “conversional analyst”. This is the first in Azerbaijan chromosome analyzing is done with the Smart Typer and Cario Typer programs. Normal blood, amniom liquid, and abortion material are analyzed. In mother’s womb we can define child has disease or not. Thalassemia and Daun widely spread diseases nowadays and we can define them analyzing the substance of amniom on the 16th week of pregnancy. We can get the result of molecular analysis in a week and in a month with classic method.
In our center, the analyzing, genetic consultation is held and we also have conversations with families and at the end we give the decision. There are more than 5000 genetic disease and it is impossible to analyze all of them in a person. That is why we create generation tree with the help of consultations and it provides some information. To diagnose the condition of child in mother’s womb equal to have healthy generations.
All of the analysis are done in the laboratory of the Afgen Clinic and the results can be defined with our apparatus.
-It is noticeable that you have broad knowledge in molecular sphere. Could you give us more information about it?
-In molecular section, different genetic diseases can be diagnosed. 2000 genes of a person can be checked with secans analysis, fragment analysis and the new method Next Generation method. This method is also called “Eqzon” analysis. Results of the both analysis are always the same. This metod does not only define Daun but also Edward and Patau syndromes.
More than 2000 genes can be checked with the Next generation analysis. It defines which disease can have a future generation. For example, the parents are healthy but it defines which diseases a new born baby can have. To know the possibility of having these disease helps to prevent them. The diseases are diagnosed and some actions are taken in order to cure and prevent them.
Our main goal is to have correct diagnose. We do not have regular working hours. If there is need we can work on holidays and Sundays. We always try to adapt new methods and apply them to our work. Our aim is to bring up healthy generations in Azerbaijan.
