[The role of soy protein in the diet therapy of patients with ischemic heart disease].

[Article in Russian]


The dynamics of blood lipid values, activity of the kallikrein-kinin system and immunologic responsiveness were studied in coronary patients (males aged 43-56 years) who had survived myocardial infarction, during dietotherapy with rations in which 2/3, 1/3 and 1/2 protein were sequentially substituted for soybean protein. The hypocholesterolemic action of soybean protein correlated with its content in the ration, the kallikrein and prekallikrein levels in the blood serum rose simultaneously with a tendency to decrease in the tryptic and to increase in the inhibitory activity of the blood, positive shifts in the cellular immunity were recorded in the patients followed up during dietotherapy.
