Where all the things begin

It all began in 1973, when the cause of the thalidomide catastrophe was unraveled at the Embryology Department of the Institute of Experimental Medicine of USSR. During thalidomide catastrophe 14 000 pregnant women in Western Europe gave birth to children with inborn anomalies. As a result of the research in Embryology Department, a model of thalidomide syndrome (Patent of the Russian Federation No. 1218812) was developed, which allowed the search for tools that reduce the risk of inborn abnormalities in children.

    Start of the company
    BioPharmos Group was created by scientists from the Institute of Experimental Medicine of the USSR Academy of Medical Sciences and the Physical-Technical Institute of A.F. Ioffe of the USSR Academy of Sciences.
  • 1994
    RF Patent No. 2058786 - Polyscias filicifolia extract has the property of reducing the risk of inborn pathology in children.
  • 1995
    BioPharmos Group introduced to the market Vitagmal®, the first biotechnological product in Russia, obtained by volumetric cultivation of the biomass of a rare medicinal plant. From the sheet Polyscias filicifolia was obtained strain - BFT-01-95, which was deposited in the All-Russian collection of cell cultures for the number 58 (RF Patent No. 2337138, 2006). Today it is the only strain of Polyscias filicifolia, registered in the All-Russian collection. On the basis of this strain, together with employees of the Research Institute of Plant Physiology RAN of K.A. Timiryazeva our company developed a technology suitable for industrial production of Polyscias filicifolia biomass in bioreactors.
