Actoprotectors are preparations that enhance body stability against physical loads without increasing oxygen consumption or heat production. Or, in short, actoprotectors are synthetic adaptogens with a significant capacity to improve physical performance. This paper explores the history of actoprotectors’development, their pharmacological properties, mechanism of action, and practical application to the improvement of mental and physical performance. A brief summary of the clinico…

Actoprotective effect of ginseng: improving mental and physical performance
TLDR
Preparations of ginseng can be regarded as potential actoprotectors which give way to further research of its influence on physical and mental work capacity, endurance and restoration after exhaustive physical loads while compared with reference actoprotsectors.

Performance-Enhancing Drugs: A Review
TLDR
The history and current studies on anabolic steroids and related substances such as androstenedione, human growth hormone, Beta-2 agonists, stimulants, creatine, erythropoietin, beta blockers, and beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate are reviewed.
Assessment of MT-279 compound effect on physical endurance of rats under conditions of chronic hypokinesia
TLDR
On Day 7, MT-279 compound was significantly superior to the comparator drug in all tests performed for assessment of the ability to improve physical endurance under conditions of chronic hypokinesia, and on Day 15, the statistically significant superiority of MT- 279 compound over 2-ETBI was identified.

[Influence of Adamantilbromphenylamine on Parameters of Immunity and Symptoms of Asthenia in Patients with Non-Psychotic Mental Disorders].
TLDR
Interrelationship of clinical-immunological effect of adamantilbromphenylamine has been revealed; intensity of production of IL 1β may be considered as a criterion of prognosis of efficiency of treatment with adamantil bromphenYlamine in patients with non-psychotic mental disorders.

Actoprotector and Adaptogen Properties of Adamantane Derivatives (A Review)
TLDR
It would be expedient to consider some possibilities and summarize the results of the search for new compounds possessing actoprotector and adaptogen activity among the derivatives of adamantane.
[Actiprotective and antihypoxic action of new heteroaromatic antioxidants].
TLDR
Inhibitor of gluconeogenase tryptophan cancelled largely the stimulatting action of highly effective and active IBKhF-1, 2 and 11 on physical performance during treadmill exercise, indicating gluconeogenesis activation is one of the major components of the actiprotective action of these antioxidants.
Actiprotective and antihypoxic action of new heteroaromatic antioxidants
TLDR
Expernents with mice showed that most of 15 new heteroaromatic antioxidant compounds possess aciprotective and antixopixic properties, and inhibitor of gluconeogenase tryptophan cancelled largely the stimulatting action of highly effective and active IBKhF-1, 2 and 11 on physical performance during treadmill exercise.
