Burdeinaya T.N., Zrelov O.Y., Maksimova T.V., Morozova M.A., Mtei G.I., Uspenskaya E.V., Pleteneva T.V., Syroeshkin A.V.


Physicochemical and biopharmaceutical analysis of excipients doesn’t allow to characterize them as inert components of drug products. Excipients are known to exhibit their own biological activity as well as influence the activity of API and other components of the formulation (antioxidants, stabilizers, fillers, etc.). Combined biological activity of stabilizer/antioxidant — disodium ethylenediaminetetraacetate (Na 2EDTA) — and water with different ratios of hydrogen isotopes (D / H) was studied on biological models of Spirotox. It was found that with the growth of deuterium/protium ratio in water the toxicity of Na 2EDTA increased.

Yakunina E.B., Severin A.E., Torshin V.I., Mansur N., Geda Semu Mengista -.


The data received from investigation of the relationship between the body weight and vital capacity of lungs of the Russian and foreign students of PFUR, who are studying in different courses. We identified their body height and weight, vital capacity of lungs and evaluated sickness rate. Analysis of the results shows that, there is a close relationship between the body weight and vital capacity of lungs in all tested individuals. However, for equal body weight, the Russian students have a greater vital capacity of lungs (average 500 ml) than the foreign ones. It revealed that during one-year adaptation to training in the University the body weight of the majority of students is increased. In Russian students with the increasing of body weight the vital capacity of lungs also elevates but in foreign students — decreases.

Control loops card rhythm men and women with neurological disorders, connected with stress

Butova O.A.


Defined that in males with neurological disorders associated with stress in the regulation of cardiac rhythm the autonomous circuit dominates. Females with neurologic pathology of heart rate regulation connect the third level of the center loop that characterizes intersystem homeostasis of cardio-respiratory system. Analysis of the lipid profile in men and women with neurological disorders revealed the significant increased level of low-density lipoprotein. Perhaps the accumulation of low-density lipoprotein particles, and thus the increase of their concentration in blood of patients with neurological disorders, caused by defect of low density lipoprotein receptors. In addition, peripheral muscarin-like action of acetylcholine, which manifests itself in the changing of the homeostatic properties of the endothelium, increased binding to low-density lipoproteins, leads to elevation of cholesterol fraction in the peripheral blood.

Mammaglobin mRNA expression as early breast cancer marker

Bojenko V.K., Solodky V.A., Kharchenko N.V., Trotsenko I.D., Trofimov D.Y., Kudinova E.A., Vaskevich E.F., Burmenskaya O.V.


Early breast cancer (BC) diagnosis is a basis for overall and relapse-free survival improvement. But methods of X-ray and morphological examination sometimes are failed in BC diagnosis. New molecular markers may give more information about BC progression. One of these markers is mammaglobin. We studied 114 tissue samples: 57 I—IV stages BC samples and 57 samples of morphologically normal breast tissue (MNBT). mRNA mammaglobin expression was assessed by qPCR with reverse transcription. mRAN mammaglobin expression was significantly higher in BC samples as compared to MNBT (p = 0,0019), besides expression level decreased during BC progression: minimal level in T3 (p = 0,0338), grade 3 (p = 0,037) and stage IV (p = 0,035) tumors. hMAM expression correlated with steroid receptors (estrogen receptor, progesterone receptpor) in MNBT (p < 0.05), but not in BC tissue. hMAM mRNA expression decreased during BC progression and correlated with steroid receptors in MNBT. hMAM expression profiling may be used as a marker in BC diagnosis.

Features of autonomic nervous system in patients with brain tumours

Lesina S.S., Nazarov R.V., Kondratyev A.N.


Objective: to study vegetative balance at patients with brain tumors located in posterior and medium cranial fossas undergone neurosurgical operations. The analysis of cardiac rhythm variability, orthostatic test and Kerdo index were used as integrative markers of activity of vegetative nervous system. 68 patients from 17 to 71 years old were enrolled. The patients were divided into two groups depending on tumor localization. All 68 (100%) patients underwent orthostatic test using “Valenta” diagnostic system, the vegetative Kerdo index was calculated three times (before operation, after an introduction narcosis and after extubation). Daily variability of cardiac rhythm was investigated in 34 (50%) patients. The statistical analysis of results of the tests in two investigated groups had been carried out. Results: according to indicators of Kerdo index, before operation the activity of parasympathetic nervous systems dominated in patients with tumor localization both in posterior and medium cranial fossa. At calculations of Kerdo index after an introduction narcosis and after extubation the distinct tendency to a eutonia condition had been recorded. Analysis of active orthostatic test showed that in the most of the patients the minimum load (transition from a prone position in vertical standing) signs of sympatotonia prevailed. The depression of cardiac rhythm variability depended on tumor localization. More often essential decreasing of cardiac rhythm variability observed in patients with posterior fossa tumors.

Avdoshina S.V., Villevalde S.V., Efremovtseva M.A., Kobalava Z.D.


Aim: to study the prognostic value of biomarkers (urine neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (uNGAL), urine interleukin-18 (uIL-18), serum cystatin C (sCysC), serum N-terminal prohormone of brain natriuretic peptide (sNT-proBNP) depending on the acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS). 58 patients with NSTE-ACS were examined. Patients with NSTE-ACS and early AKI had higher sCysC, sNT-proBNP, uNGAL and uIL-18 levels than the patients without AKI. No relationship between biomarkers and in-hospital mortality was revealed in patients with cardiorenal syndrome (CRS). AKI — acute kidney injury NSTE-ACS — non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome CRS — cardiorenal syndrome NT-proBNP — N-terminal prohormone of Brain Natriuretic Peptide IL-18 — interleukin-18 NGAL — neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin
