[Role of peroxidation processes and nitric oxide in mechanisms of paraneoplastic alterations of hemocirculation].

[Article in Russian]


The present work was aimed to study mechanisms of paraneoplastic alterations of tissue redox-status, intensity of local blood flow in liver and their possible interrelations in case of malignant tumor growth. It has been investigated the electronic paramagnetic centres of blood and liver using the electronic paramagnetic resonance (EPR) method and intensity of local hemocirculation with the use of H(+) clearance polarography method. Experiments have been carried out on adult white rats of mixed population with carcinoma Walker and mice -- with carcinoma Ehrlich. It has been shown that malignant tumor growth displays conditions that lead to exaggerated lipid peroxidation (production of POL promoters -- Fe(2+), Mn(2+), NO, ubiquinone) and suppression of antioxidant protection of organism (reduction of total ceruloplasmin concentration in blood and increased concentration of oxidized ceruloplasmin). It has been suggested that in case of malignant tumor growth sharp paraneoplastic alterations of redox-status plays essential role in mechanisms of paraneoplastic disorders of tissues blood supply. All of these interrelated processes result in generalized paraneoplastic hypoxia in organs and tissues.
