Abstract

On the basis of previous biochemical observations, which have demonstrated the formation of complexes between anthocyanosides and some phospholipids, the AA. investigate the modifications induced by local and general administration of anthocyanosides 1) on the foreign body granuloma and 2) on the composition of the protein fractions in the exudate from the capillaries of the granulation tissue, growing on post-thromboflebitic or varicose leg ulcerations. The biochemical and histochemical data may show that the anthocyanosides protect the altered capillary walls with a double mechanism: a) increasing the endothelium barrier-effect through a stabilisation of the membrane phospholipids and b) increasing the biosynthetic processes of the acid mucopolysaccharides of the connective ground substance, by restoring the altered mucopolysaccharidic pericapillary sheat. This last effect may explain the marked increase of new-formed capillaries and collagen fibrils induced by the anthocyanosides.
