[Article in Russian]


Administration of phytoecdisteroides ecdisterone and turkesterone in the dose of 5 mg/kg and anabolic steroid preparation nerobol in the dose 10 mg/kg in rats with experimental diabetes removes the activation of respiration under all metabolic conditions of rats liver mitochondria revealing at given pathology. The normalized effect of phytoecdisteroides on the cells energetic processes is observed on the 7th day of the administration. The same effect of nerobol is revealed at more prolonged (15 days) administration.
