Effects of natural protease inhibitors on hemostasis and serum proteolysis blockers in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis

, : Effects of natural protease inhibitors on hemostasis and serum proteolysis blockers in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis. Problemy Tuberkuleza: 27-30

Changes in hemostasis and basic serum antiproteases (alpha 1 protease inhibitor--alpha 1-PI and alpha 2-macroglobulin--alpha 2-MG) were followed up in patients with infiltrative pulmonary tuberculosis in the destruction phase. 65 patients received chemotherapy in combination with contrykal inhalations, 63 patients were given glucocorticoid hormones and prodectin. It was found that natural protease inhibitors produced a marked clinical response, abated more rapidly thrombohemorrhagic syndrome, promoted normalization of coagulation and fibrinolysis. Replacement aerosol therapy with antiprotease agents reestablished the concentration of alpha 1-PI, but had no effect on that of alpha 2-MG. This may contribute to reparative processes in pulmonary tissue which ran without significant signs of sclerosis. The results obtained may be used by clinicians choosing methods of pathogenetic therapy.
