The investigation was devoted to studying the effects of different modes of dosed normobaric hypoxia on the changes in morphometric indexes of functional activity and physiological regeneration of liver parenchima in young rats. It was shown, that in rats exposed to hypoxic gas mixture (10% O2), the amount of karyonucleus and binuclear hepatocytes, nucleo-cytoplasmic and nucleolar-nuclear correlation increased. The changes in these indexes appeared to be more intensive when dosed normobaric intermittent hypoxia was administered with alternation of deoxygenation and reoxygenation periods. We believe that dosed normobaric hypoxia increases the functional activity and physiological regeneration of liver parenchima.

Keywords: dosed normobaric hypoxia, physiologicalregeneration, liver parenchima.
