PECULIARITIES OF HISTOMORPHOLOGICAL LIVER CHANGES ASSOCIATED WITH COMBINED EFFECT OF ACTIVE SUBSTANCES WITH ONE-PURPOSE ACTION
Some studies have proven possible potentiating toxic effect of combined pesticides. The potentiating effect may be related to the impact of a certain substance on enzymatic activity of another one. Due to combined preparations popularity, the importance of evaluating probability of summation and synergetic or antagonizing action of the one-purpose substances becomes particularly important.
Aim of the research is to study peculiarities of histomorphological liver changes associated with combined effect of active substances with one-purpose action.
Methods. The authors have used toxicological, histochemical and statistical study methods. 45 rats have been used for the study. The liver specimens for histochemical analysis were selected immediately after dissection of the rats, from which the 5 micrometer sections were prepared, using freezing microtome. After leaving the sections in cold acetone, the histochemical reaction on determining the γ-glutamyl transpeptidase, a transformed hepatocyte marker, which forms nodules while proliferates, was conducted.
Results. The authors have established that the above-mentioned characteristics in animals which were administered the drug (benthiavalicarb-isopropyl+folpet) do not differ from negative control group. General specific area of nodules per сm2 and specific quantity of nodules per сm2 haven’t reliably changed, the control group exceeding these data by 18 % and 12 %, respectively.
Discussion. The study of the benthiavalicarb-isopropyl and folpet mixture effect on animals has not revealed liver tissue proliferation of the carcinogen-transformed cells and appearance of hyperplastic nodes, which express the γ-glutamyl transpeptidase, a histochemical marker of pre-tumor changes.
So, the fungicide (benthiavalicarb-isopropyl+folpet) has not induced multiplication or size increase of glutamyl transpeptidase nodules, which evidences about loss of the modifying effect of folpet on the benthiavalicarb-isopropyl carcinogenicity in this preparation formula.
The obtained results may be used when deciding on administration of combined fungicides with active substances of one-purpose action.
