In this experiment it was analyzed the effect of some biologically active substances extracted from the cortex of the Aralia mandshurica plants (Chisinau population) on laboratory mice (Mus muscullus), compared with a stress factor (X- ray radiation). The dilutions were made in distilled water and in deuterium depleted water. The combined administration of Aralia mandshurica plants cortex extracts presented a protective effect against X-ray radiation but also an immunostimulating effect, especially if the dilution was carried out with DDW.
The deuterium depleted water / ultra light water (DDW) is low-deuterium water, 30-120 ppm deuterium; its physical aspect looks like colorless liquid, flavored water, with a low content in ion and hydrogendeuterium isotope.
The effects of this kind of water are great: increased vascular reactivity, nonspecific immune stimulation, increased animal resistance to sublethal and lethal doses of radiation, remission of tumor cell lines, etc. (Titescu, 1999). DDW affects both the normal cells proliferation and the pathological ones, being involved in the processes of apoptosis and mechanisms anti carcinogens (Corneanu et al, 2005).
In this experiment we analyzed the effect of administration of some biologically active substances in dilutions made with normal water or ultra light water, to the action of a stress factor, the X-rays.
