Abstract: Erythron membrane impairment was investigated using membrane active
drugs (obsidan, delagil, morphium, ethanol) to specify indications to acupuncture in bronchial asthma (BA).
The patients were studied during the treatment and followed up for a year. It was found that both immediate and long-term results of acupuncture were related to patterns of the membrane - impairment. BA patients with a sharp, greater than 1.5 fold diminution of
microcyte count upon delagil test should be assigned to repeated courses of
acupuncture during a year.
To monitor the treatment effect, it is
recommended to define osmotic resistance of the red blood cells in obsidan
test in addition to clinicofunctional indices.
