Abstract


Diagnosis, treatment and prevention of atherosclerosis remain one of the most important tasks of modern medicine; their solution depends largely on the successful fight against such diseases as heart attack, stroke and other cardiovascular complications. At the present stage of development of medicine the statins are the basic class of lipid-lowering drugs, they have a powerful evidence base and possess the vascular and pleiotropic effects. However, the widespread use of these drugs can sometimes be limited by their high cost and the number of side effects. Therefore, in terms of effective prevention of atherosclerosis lesions herbal medicines are currently of a special interest, in particular those on the basis of garlic powder and artishock extract. The new original drug “Altsinara” developed by PJSC SIC “Borshchahivskiy CPP” is one of them. It has a polytropic mechanism of action and can be used for prevention and treatment of diseases of the cardiovascular, digestive and urinary systems.
