It is found that after administration of 3'-methyl-4-dimethylaminoazobenzene (3'-Me-DAB,) which was hepatocarcinogenic to rats, in suckling mice, the number of neoplastic lesions in the liver of mice was 3 times higher than after analogous administration of equimolar dose of ortho-aminoazotoluene (OAT)). However, in the Ames test (TA-98 strain of Salmonella(More)
Menopausal transition is often accompanied by a variety of adverse pathological symptoms, currently treated with hormone replacement therapy, which is associated with a number of health risks. This report investigated the role of a food supplement--a composition of energy-exchange metabolites, with succinate as the main component--for treating menopausal(More)
Indolamine-2,3-dioxygenase, a tryptophan-catabolizing enzyme, creates local conditions suppressing immune lymphocytes. Expression of this enzyme in tumors protects them from immune mechanisms, while its inhibition partially reduces tumor immunoresistance. This effect is attained by multiple subcutaneous or intraperitoneal injections of ethyl pyruvate, an(More)
The role of cystatin C, an inhibitor of cysteine proteases, as an alternative and potent predictor of acute cardiovascular events in coronary heart disease (CHD) patients was examined and compared to that of other markers of cardiorenal abnormalities. The patients with CHD demonstrated elevated serum cystatin C, especially in cases with serious risk of(More)
This paper deals with the development of a technology for making a hydrophilic gel of polyethylene oxide reception in which radiating ability is employed to cause cross-linking of polymers in a water solution. The gel of polyethylene oxide was shown to be non-toxic, contain 5-50% of polymer and be useful in composite medicinal forms along with biologically(More)
Pentachlorophenol (aromatic amine and azo stain metabolic stimulation inhibitor) reduced the hepatocarcinogenic activity of 4-aminoazobenzene and reduced that of ortho-aminoazotoluene in suckling mice. Both 4-aminoazobenzene and ortho-aminoazotoluene exhibited mutagenic activity in Ames’ test in vitro on S. typhimurium TA 98 strain with activation with(More)
It is shown that in case of antioxidant insufficiency (AOI) activation of NADPH- and ascorbate-dependent lipid peroxidation (LPO) in sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) of skeletal muscles proceeds 1.7 and 4.1 times faster, respectively. Activation of lipid peroxidation in AOI leads to damage of Ca2+ transport processes in SR of skeletal muscles. Under these(More)
Lipid peroxidation (LPO), physico-chemical properties of the membranes and isoformic composition of microsomal cytochrome P-450 from the rat liver were studied under conditions of antioxidant insufficiency (AOI) which was modelled by exclusion of alpha-tocopherol from the animals' ration. An insignificant accumulation of microsomal diene conjugates and(More)
The effect of ambiocor (15 mg/100 ml), which contains natural substrates of energy metabolism, on the contractility of papillary muscles (PM) of the right ventricle of the rat heart was studied at stimulation frequencies from 0.1 to 3.0 Hz at a temperature of 30 +/- 1 degrees C (n = 7). The effect was recorded 20 min after the addition of the preparation.(More)
Distinct changes of basic indicators of cellular immunity were diagnosed in 157 patients with rheumatic heart disease which needed surgical correction. A classification of disturbances of cellular immunity is proposed. A definite correlation between the degree of cellular immunity disturbances and basic clinical parameters of the rheumatic heart disease was(More)
