Dear friends, partners and co-workers,
On 27th of March 2012, Institute for Biomedical Diagnostics and Research “Nalaz” is celebrating its first birthday. Colourful dots of our logo have become familiar to all: citizens of BiH, in need of top of the line medical diagnostics, students, experts and scientists, who constantly seek to improve their skills, knowledge in a place where their ideas can be turned into reality, and our friends, who stop by, to have a chat and a cup of coffee.
In the past we have worked hard on improving our laboratory diagnostics in the field of microbiology, immunology and biochemistry. We organized two scientific conferences with international participation, written dozens of educational brochures and articles in popular newspapers and published several scientific papers, applied to two scientific projects.
This year, we wish to meet your needs even further but for that we require your help and your advice. Our doors are always wide open, and your opinion is much appreciated.

Sponsors of the Conference were: bioMérieux, Biomedica, Bošnjački Institute Foundation of Adil Zulfikarpašić.
The conference was attended by scientists and experts from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Austria, Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia. Among the speakers and listeners were: microbiologists, gynecologists, dermatologists, pathologists, engineers of laboratory diagnostics, family medicine doctors, etc.
The focus of the conference was to reproductive health. The problem was analyzed from different aspects and points out the numerous problems related to reproductive health. Sexually transmitted diseases were analyzed in detail.
Reproductive health of the nation is of special interest for each country. Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are widespread in the world. STDs affect the reproductive health of men and women, and two thirds of all STDs occur in people younger than 25 years. Most often, STDs do not cause any symptoms, especially among women, exceeding the chronic form and lead to serious health problems. Some STDs can cause pelvic infections that can cause damage to reproductive organs, which in turn, can cause ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus), infertility in women and cervical cancer. STDs can be transmitted from mother to child before, during or after birth.
STDs attack the reproductive organs of males as well and represent the major cause of male infertility in recent years.

Cervical cancer is an insidious disease that can develop without any symptoms for years. In theory no woman should not suffer from cervical cancer. The cervix is easily accessible to examination, and all abnormal changes can be detected and treated at a time. Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women younger than 45 years and the third leading cause of death for women after breast and lung cancer. Even in developed countries with established screening program for early detection of cervical cancer, women have still died from this disease.
The Institute "NALAZ" established the Center for Disease Control and Prevention of HPV infection. Thanks to powerful diagnostics used in the Institute, HPV infection can be detected before the appearance of morphological signs. Viral activity can be determined as well, its peaceful, benign state, and the transition to an invasive form and development of cancer.
Institute "NALAZ " is the only center in the region that performs all diagnostic methods for detection of virus infection, of which the most important are real-time PCR and NASBA.
