8.1.2 A recent content analysis provided an account of methods patented in Russia for drug treatment . A database of the Russian Federal Institute of Industrial Property from the year 1925 to 2011 was analysed, including 429 patents related to addiction treatment.

Majority of patents were authored by academicians of the National Scientific Center of Narcology of the Ministry of Health and Social Development of Russian Federation – the national leading research institution in the field of addictions and treatment . The content analysis of the patented methods revealed that while “the titles of the [Russian] national scientific journals in general correspond to the content of international [scientific] journals… significant part of intervention is queer, overwhelming part of them is not well-founded or very few trials are described.
