Abstract

Bioethics as a discipline emerged at the turn of the 1960s and 1970s; from the start, the ethical component of Russian medicine played an important role in the development of bioethics. The outstanding surgeons and physicians S.G. Zybelin, P.D. Veniaminov, M.Ya. Mudrov, E.O. Mukhin, F.P. Gaas, N. I. Pirogov, V.S. Soloviev, A. E. Kozhevnikov, S.S. Korsakov, V.V. Veresaev, V.M. Bekhterev, V. F. Voino-Yasenetsky, N.N. Petrov, E.K. Sepp, A.M. Wayne, V.A. Karlov, N.N. Yakhno and many others contributed to the formation of bioethics in Russia. The Russian Antiepileptic League pays high attention to issues related to bioethics; among them, the use of original and reproduced drugs (generics), the updated classification of epilepsy, the adoption of resolutions important for the national health, as well as the medical and social program «Attention – epilepsy!» for patients and their families. The main objective of the Program is to improve the health and quality of life in patients suffering from epilepsy, and to facilitate their adaptation to the society.
