The State Institution «State Medical University of Lugansk»

Volatile compounds could be represented by different classes of organic compounds, such as hydrocarbons, terpenoids, steroids, fatty acids, etc. These substances were widely distributed in the plant kingdom and exhibited a wide range of pharmacological effects. They were part of the vitamins involved in the metabolism, lowered cholesterol levels in the blood and were intermediates in the synthesis of other biologically important compounds. Therefore, the study of the complex volatile compounds with a view to their future use was promising phytochemical study. Malva sylvestris L. was a plant of Malvaceae family; it had significant experience in the application in traditional medicine. However, the lack of a comprehensive pharmacognostic study and fragmented literature data about the chemical composition caused limited application of mallow in the officinal medicine. A sum of lipophilic substances has been obtained by exhaustive extraction with chloroform of the leaves and roots of M. sylvestris in a Soxhlet apparatus. By gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, the qualitative and quantitative composition of the volatile compounds in the obtained extracts and fruit of M. sylvestris has been studied. .In fruits have been found 43 substances, 38 of which were identified; in the lipophilic extract of the leaves of M. sylvestris have been identified 37 substances, in the lipophilic extract of the roots have been found 38 substances, 25 components of these extracts have been identified.

Genus Rubus L. included over 200 species, of which 19 species have been distributed in Ukraine. Since ancient times infusions and decoctions of dried fruits of blackberry have been used as a diaphoretic drugs. The infusion of the leaves was used as an expectorant for the treatment of diseases of the upper respiratory tract. Blackberry leaves were also used for heavy bleeding and anemia. Prolonged intake of tea from blackberry leaves improved metabolism in diabetes. Drugs from the leaves and young shoots were used as anti-inflammatory agent in gingivitis, stomatitis and sore throat. They were also recommended as a disinfectant and anti-inflammatory agent for the treatment of urinary tract infections. A decoction of the leaves and fruits of blackberry lowered a blood pressure. Blackberry leaves contained about (9.3-24.3) per cent of extractives (including sugars, organic acids, cellulose, tannins, pectins). As biologically active substances blackberry fruit and leaves were marked micro and macro elements and vitamins A, C, B1, B2 and C. Phytochemical study of shoots of Rubus candicans Weihe, occurring in Ukraine, for the detection and isolation of phenolic compounds has been conducted. Using known methods of chemical reactions and chromatographic analysis flavonoids have been identified in a hydroalcoholic extract, ethyl acetate and butanol fractions in alcohol. The structure of the selected phenolic compounds was established by physicochemical methods (UV-, IR-, NMR-spectroscopy), chemical and biochemical methods of analysis. For the first time from shoots Rubus candicans Weihe have been isolated 8 phenolic compounds (astragalin, izokvertsetrin, hyperoside, kaempferol- 3-O-arabinoside, kaempferol, quercetin, rutin) and their structure have been determined.

An efficacy of drugs at the base of Aegopodium podagraria L. leaves, in particular, of an extract (200 mg/kg and 1 g/ kg). a tinkture (1 ml/kg and 5 ml/kg), a protein-polysaccharide complex (200 mg/kg) and a flavonoid trifolin (kaempferol 3-Ogalactoside, 50 mg/kg) in hepatic ischemia-reperfusion at rats has been studied. It has been found that drugs at the base of Aegopodium podagraria and trifolin not only increased a survival of animals, but also inhibited cytolysis, promoted normalization of protein concentration and plasma glucose, reduced regulation of lipid peroxidation, reduced the severity of complications from kidney. The tincture (5 ml/kg), the extract (1 g/kg), the protein-polysaccharide complex (200 mg/kg) and trifolin (50 mg/kg) have been not less effective then silibore (200 mg/kg). The beneficial effects of the extract (1 g/kg) and trifolina on the antioxidant defense system has been expressed in maintaining of the normal levels of ceruloplasmin in plasma, whereas the protein-polysaccharide complex promoted an activation of catalase and superoxide dismutase of the liver. Trifolin and protein-polysaccharide complex, as the tincture (1 ml/kg), increased the content of thiol compounds in the liver. Prognostically favorable sign of the pathological process was the increase of the capacity of the liver to glycogen accumulation at the treatment with the extract (1 g/kg) and trifolin.These data substantiated the feasibility of further studies of drugs and biologically active substances of Aegopodium podagraria as hepatoprotective drugs and required indepth study of the mechanisms of their action.

One of approaches at the treatment of patients with chronic prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia was found the use of drugs at the base of a complex of peptides, which have been isolated from the prostate gland of cattle (Prostatilen, Vitaprost, Raveron), and which have been manufactured in the form of lyophilized powder for injection. The purpose of this study was to investigate the pharmacological activity and acute toxicity Prostatilen, domestic preparation, solution for injection (JSC «Lekhim-Kharkiv). Experimental prostatic hyperplasia has been caused by subcutaneous administration of testosterone to rats for 21 days. In the study of a specific pharmacological effect on the model of prostatic hyperplasia at rats it has been found that Prostatilen, solution for injection (JSC «Lekhim- Kharkov»), restored diuresis (against water load) to the level of intact animals, reduced the mass and volume of an enlarged prostate gland at the pathology, reduced high activity of alkaline phosphatase in the blood compared to the control of pathology. On the studied pharmacological effects it has been found no different from Prostatilen - Biopharma, powder for injection (JSC «Biopharma»). Study of acute toxicity, which has been conducted on two species of animals (mice, rats), with two routes of administration (intraperitoneal, intramuscular), showed that these drugs had low toxicity and were equally well tolerated and did not cause the death of animals. The above leads to the conclusion that Prostatilen, solution for injection, could be recommended for the treatment of chronic prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia as an effective and safe remedy.

An osteoarthritis was found to be one of the most common diseases, a medical and socio-economic problem and took one of the first places among the causes of long-term disability of population in the World. Therefore, the search for new chondroprotectors was an urgent task of pharmacology and medicine. More and more attention was devoted to the cytokine mechanisms of the development of osteoarthritis. It was known that proinflammatory interleukin-1 (IL-1) in cells of the bone and cartilage stimulated production of proteases by chondrocytes , increased production of prostaglandin E2, enhanced the proliferation of synovial fibroblasts and chondrocytes. It was possible therefore that antagonist of IL-1 receptors should show chondroprotective effects. Data of the study of chondroprotective effects of the original recombinant antagonist of IL-1 (ARIL-1) receptor on the model of systemic steroid osteoarthritis (STS) at rats have been presented. It was determined that in the STS under the influence of the drug has decreased the content of all markers of metabolism of connective tissue in blood serum of animals, especially chondroitinsulfate and sialic acids. At effect on the level of the major metabolites of connective tissue, ARIL-1 prevailed glucosamine hydrochloride. Also ARIL-1 significantly reduced the total amount of glycosaminoglycans by reducing the fraction of chondroitin-6-sulfate, content of which reached the level of intact animals. ARIL-1 positively influenced on the sum and fractions of glycosaminoglycans in serum, slowed down the development of inflammatory and destructive processes in cartilage tissue at the level of the reference chondroprotector glucosamine hydrochloride. Analysis of biochemical data against experimental osteoarthritis showed high chondroprotective and anti-inflammatory potential of ARIL-1.

At review of the scientific literature on the judicial pharmacy, pharmaceutical and medical law, criminal law, criminal, neurological, psychiatric, addictologial and medico-legal, it have been demonstrated that the illegal trafficking of substances and drug-related crimes remained relevant problem in the World. In the process of compilation of data of judicial pharmacy, the extent of organized transnational and cross-border drug trafficking have been studied. According to the data of judicial pharmaceutical monitoring of the extent of drug-related crime, drug addiction and trafficking of illicit drugs in Ukraine, Afghanistan, Israel, Mexico, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, USA, Russia and EU countries, global trends of distribution of opium derivatives, amphetamine, cannabis, cocaine and other psychoactive substances have been examined. An abuse of substances has been divided into: 1) regular abuse from 3 to 10 times a day, 2) frequent abuse of up to 3 times a day, 3) rare abuse of up to 1 time a day, or up to 1 time in a few days or a week. Users of illegal substance have been found to be drug addicts and were registered in the substitution therapy programs. A problem of HIV/AIDS, premature deaths, crimes, suicides, hepatitis and tuberculosis among drug addicts remained very relevant. The results of the judicial-pharmaceutical study of drug addiction situation in the world could be a starting point for the development of State programs against international drug trafficking, drug abuse and related socially dangerous diseases among different population groups.

An attention has been devoted to the fact that the level of morbidity with TD employees at Pharmaceutical Company «Darnitsa» in comparison with the main sectors of the economy, began to grow rapidly from 1993 and reached a peak in 1995 and 1997 (113.1 % and 104.4 %, respectively. Identifying in 1995-1997, factors of negative impact on the level of morbidity with TD employees leaded to the development and adoption of urgent measures to reduce disability. In 1999 compared with 1997, the level of morbidity with TD employees has been reduced to 42.82 % (59.7 % and 104.4 %, respectively), and compared with 1995 it has been reduced to 52.79 % (59.7 % and 113.1 %, respectively). The period from 2000 to 2006 was characterized by the fact that measures for improvement of the welfare of personnel protection have been put into the place. These measures helped to stabilize the low level of morbidity with TD staff and to maintain it in the past 10 years. Data showed a decrease in the level of morbidity with TD for three main nosological groups (6, 9, 10) (in cases per 100 employees) in the period 2006-2010 compared to the period 1196-2000 for almost a one third – for 29.13 % (62.5 cases per 100 persons and 48.4 cases per 100 persons, respectively); for the 10th nosological group the decrease was 31.91 % (43.4 cases and 32.9 cases, respectively), for the 6th nosological groups – 153.49 % (10.9 cases and 4.3 cases, respectively), for the 9th nosological groups – 164.52 % (8.2 cases and 3.1 cases, respectively). However, the indicator «all diseases together» (18 nosological groups) increased (in cases of morbidity with TD employees to 100 employees) to 7.9 % (82.3 cases for 1996-2000 and 88.8 cases per 2006 - 2010). In-depth analysis of the structure and the level of morbidity with TD employees at Pharmaceutical company «Darnitsa» at 2006-2010 allowed to confirm the accuracy of the selected strategy and tactics in solving social program reform and rapid development of the company as a key link in ensuring Ukraine's population with highly effective, high quality, safe and affordable drugs.

Studies of the Ukrainian and foreign markets of ACE inhibitors at the example of the leading countries in the field of pharmacy (USA, Germany, Switzerland, UK) have been conducted. It has been found that ACE inhibitors still remained the leader in terms of consumption of a group of antihypertensive agents, both worldwide and in Ukraine. Enalapril and Lisinopril steadfastly continued to hold first and second place of antihypertensives in terms of sales and number of drugs’ prescription. Ukrainian market of ACE inhibitor drugs was represented by 60 one-component drugs (share was about 55 %) based on 12 commercial substances and by 49 combined drugs(share was about 45 %) based on 8 substances. 19 domestic manufacturers produced drugs based on 3 substances. ACE inhibitors of the III-generation were produced by Ukrainian industry at the base of lisinopril; new substances were not used, though they have come out of patent protection. Based on survey, an analysis of awareness and consumers’ preferences of visitors of pharmacies regarding ACE inhibitors. Most commonly used by visitors drugs were based on captopril, enalapril and lisinopril, which (with the exception of captopril) reflected the preferences in consumption abroad. It was shown that the price was one of the major points (along with efficiency and safety) on the decision to purchase an ACE inhibitor. Factors of impact and importance of the information for purchasing an ACE inhibitor have been determined. The share of the cost for the drug in consumers’ total costs has been estimated.
