THE ANALYSIS OF CONSUMPTION OF ANTIPARASITIC MEDICINES IN PHARMACIES
Antimicrobial and antiparasitic agents are drugs with detrimental effects on pathogenic microorganisms, which are used for the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases. The pharmaceutical market provides a large range of antiparasitic drugs, but they all have a large number of contraindications, side effects, and are intended only for the destruction of one or more parasites. Therefore, increasing the diversity of drugs of this group and their presence in the Russian pharmaceutical market is an important aspect in the treatment of diseases of this disease area. All organisms that are initiators (pathogens) of diseases of flora and fauna and are leading a parasitic way of life, while using other living organisms in the form of accommodation, reproduction, nutrition, are called parasites. In organisms of the "owners," there are parasitic varieties of parasites: worms, helminths, arthropods, bacteria, viruses, protozoa, etc. They are capable of causing the aggravation of relevant diseases in certain unfavorable for microorganism moments. The group of parasitic diseases also includes some nosological forms caused by arthropods, such as pediculosis (lice), scabies, etc. For all the reasons mentioned, it is important to conduct a marketing and pharmacoeconomic analysis of the Russian, regional and local pharmaceutical market of antiparasitic drugs.
