Hiruline Corporation unites several organizations and collaborative groups. All of them are working on the development of modern technologies for health life with the help of medicinal leeches. The understanding of traditional medicine’s unique capabilities is the theoretical basis of this work. The Corporation includes a medical clinic, a scientific research lab, a breeding nursery and a special plant where medical leeches are cultivated. A significant contribution in foundation of this Corporation is made by Kamenev medical dynasty.
For today the main branches of Hiruline Corporation’s activity are:
- scientifically based hirudotherapy and hirudopractice;
- standards of medical leech applying in treatment, rehabilitation and life quality improving.
The founder of the Corporation – dr. Oleg Kamenev for more than 25 years has been applying hirudotherapy methods in medical practice and from 1995 conducting post graduate hirudotherapeuting training courses for doctors. In this period more than two thousand doctors of different specialties received training in this field.
The further development of scientifically based hirudotherapy and defining of its place in modern medicine was not possible without the broad international collaboration of specialists from different countries. That is why upon an initiative of dr. Kamenev in 2012 was founded an International community of hirudoptactitioners (ICHP) which unites leading experts in hirudotherapy and hirudopractice from around the world.
Another activity of the Corporation is in the development of a new approach to medical leech applying - the System hirudotherapy. The aim of this approach is slowing the senescence and workability increasing of senior age group (over 60 years old).
