 Literature review is devoted to the analysis of scientific findings about extraosseous effects of vitamin D on the immune system of the periodontal tissues. It was found that the biological functions of vitamin D (VD) in the body are diverse.Along with the detailed study of the effect on metabolic processes in bone tissue, VD makes a significant contribution to a large number of processes that ensure the activity of the immune system. In addition, VD increases the production of "endogenous antibiotics". This allows us to consider VD as a therapeutic agent that prevents the development of inflammatory and destructive changes in the periodontal tissues in population with simultaneous slowing of bone loss and preservation of bone mass of the dentofacial system. Currently detected hidden hypovitaminosis VD in almost majority of the population is considered a leading factor in the development of periodontal disease and its prevention and treatment is one of the most important tasks of therapeutic dentistry.

This article aims to provide an analytical review of existing organizational and methodological approaches to the prevention and control of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the Russian Federation. Various aspects of the current situation of CKD in the Russian Federation are considered and national institutional mechanisms applicable to this state are analyzed. Despite the obvious positive developments in the prevention of noncommunicable diseases in the Russian Federation, the problem of CKD in Russia is not sufficiently covered as a result of this situation there is personnel and methodological deficit, weak interdisciplinary interaction of health care organizations, as well as underreporting of specific nephrological risks of CKD progression.

The purpose of scientific work was to substantiate the relevance ofthe problem of transplant tourism, which is a way for a recipient to obtain an organ for transplantation bypassing national wait lists by finding a donor in a foreign country on a commercial basis. The authors have performed analysis of literary sources related to issues ofthe development of transplant tourism around the world, origins of its existence as well as possible ways to prevent the following practive. In conclusion, authors underline the necessity to establish the development of transplantology based on principles of gracious organ donations and fairness in terms of recipient election.

Objective: to assess the possibility of using markers of renal injury and carcinogenesis as additional criteria for the choice of the method of surgical treatment of RCC and to minimize the risk of development and progression of kidney injury. Material and Methods. 60 patients with morphologically confirmed RCC T1-3M0N0 operated on in the volume of open nephrectomy or laparoscopic nephrectomy or laparoscopic resection and the kidney were examined. Patients were divided into 3 groups: group 1: patients after nephrectomy performed for kidney cancer using traditional surgical technique, group 2: patients after laparoscopic nephrectomy and group 3: after laparoscopic resection of kidney tumor. Before surgical operation, on the 5-7 day and after 1 month, all patients were examined by concentrations of urinary excreted lipocalin 2 (NGAL), and serum concentrations of IL-18, MMP-9 and IGF-1. Renal function was estimated using the calculated GFR equation (CKD-EPI 2009) based on serum creatinine level. Immunohistochemical study of histological preparations of distant tumors on proliferation antibodies (Ki-67, PCNA), apoptosis (BAX, Bcl-2) was performed. Differences in clinical data and clinical variables were compared using Spearman rank correlations and t-test. Results. The studied indices of renal damage of IL-18, NGAL, MMP-9 and IGF-1 both in the early (5-7 days) and later (1 month) postoperative period showed a correlation between the surgical intervention method and the degree of tumor cell differentiation. Conclusion. The levels of biomolecular markers of renal damage (IL-18, NGAL, MMP-9 and IGF-1) correlate with the degree of differentiation in thetumoral cells and functional activity of the remaining renal parenchyma in the postoperative period, but also depend on the individual characteristics of the patient's body. A certain level of expression of MMP-9 and IL-18 with a small tumor size can be a guide to determine the indications for the choice of organ-preserving surgery in patients.
