  • silatranes;
  • pharmacokinetics;
  • hepatoprotection effect


The degradation rate of biologically active hypervalent silicon and germanium compounds (atranes) was investigated under various pH conditions. Stimulating effects on proliferation and reparation processes in experimental animals were demonstrated.
