We investigated the resistance of erythrocytes from rat brain venous blood to acid hemolysis in the dynamics of brain ischemic period (15, 30, 45 and 60 min), as well as in the early (5 min) and distant (24h) period of brain reperfusion. Brain ischemia-reperfusion was made in rats that received ecdysterone (standartized extract of Serratula coronata) within 18 days (per os, 1 mg/kg). Analysis of the kinetic curves of acid hemolysis showed a pronounced (60 times, from 1.45 to 85.85 % at 60 min of brain ischemia and at 5 min of brain reperfusion, respectively) increase of unstable erythrocytes that hemolyzed easily (<2.5 min). In the preconditioned rats, this increase was only 8- fold. During the period of brain ischemia, with a maximum at 15th minute, in the venous blood from brain the diene conjugates (DK) pools increased from 2.40 to 9.48 ng/mg protein and LTC4 pools increased from 1.49 to 5.98 pmol/mg protein. Even more pools of DC and LTC4 were increased at 5th min of brain reperfusion. In animals received ecdysterone, during ischemia and early reperfusion period, both pools of DC and LTC4 in venous blood were lower than that in the controls. The latter implies a possible antiradical mechanism of the protective effect of ecdysterone.
