Comparative study was conducted of formal preparations of tinctures of eleutherococcus and leuzea and the newly developed preparations Elton and Leveton containing, respectively, eleutherosids and ecdisten. Intensive physical activity of high-class athletes leads to increase of blood coagulation expressed in shortening of the thromboelastogram r and K intervals and increased activity of the proth rombin complex according to Quick, and increased activity of factors II, VII, X, XIII, and fibrinolysis. The concentration of fibrinogen increases. A 20-day course of eleuthrococcus tincture causes a decrease in the blood coagulation potential and activity of the blood coagulation factors induced by intensive training of the athletes. Twenty-day treatment with the new broad-spectrum adaptogens Elton and Leveton causes a more marked reduction of the coagulation potential in athl etes. The activity of the factors and fibrinolys are normalized in this case. The indicated shifts are accompanied with increase of working capacity and rehabilitation of the athletes.
