Background. Diarylheptanoids administration increases the efficacy of cyclophosphamide and reduces the activity of lipid peroxidation processes, allowing to decrease the dose of a cytostatic agent and reduce its side effects. The purpose of the study was to determine the protective properties of diarylheptanoid oregonin against the toxic effects of cyclophosphamide on the leukocyte count and the concentration of free amino acids in the blood plasma and spleen tissue. Material and methods. Male rats treated with cyclophosphamide (160 mg/kg body weight) and oregonin (5 mg/ kg body weight) were used in the study. The determination of free amino acids was performed by the reversed-phase HPLC. Results. It has been established that the administration of a course of oregonin together with cyclophosphamide increases the content of amino acids and their derivatives in blood plasma as well as the availability of proteinogenic amino acids in spleen cells. Conclusion. Administration of a course of oregonin together with cyclophosphamide has a protective effect against the amino acid imbalance in the blood plasma and spleen tissue.
