Nadezhda Maksimova, a physician-geneticist, chief scientist of the educational-scientific laboratory “Genomic Medicine” at the North-Eastern Federal University, described a new deadly disease.

The virus that the specialist from Yakutia discovered causes irreversible genetic mutation, after which a person can live for only three years.

“Only two of 16 patients are alive,” the doctor said.

In the past, Maksimova identified two other genetic diseases, known as SOPH-syndrome and the Yakutia dwarfism syndrome. The second one is common with every 30th resident of the republic.
