Summary

The biological activity and pharmacological effects of silatrane, silocanes and their silicon analogs of heteroauxine, choline, acethylcholine, colamine, and phosphorus oxyacids have been studied for the first time. New drugs for “alopecia areata” (silocast), chronic periodontitis (sident), and osteoporosis (silymine) have been developed. Silatranes and herbs (silicon-philes) are being used for development of new medicinal cosmetics (sila-cosmeceutics).
