The invention belongs to the field of medicine, namely to new means of chelation of metal ions, mainly iron, which can be used in the treatment of an overload of iron in the body or in hemochromatosis.

Iron is a vital element that is part of hemoglobin, myoglobin, seminovich enzymes, but at th same time, it can increase the production of highly reactive and toxic free oxygen radicals, especially hydroxyl radicals, thereby stimulating oxidative damage [Iron and Heme Metabolism [Electronic resource]. - Search regimen http:/]. Excess iron is associated with a number of diseases, disorders and conditions, because the person does not have physiological mechanisms aimed at removing an excess amount of this element [Brittenham G. M. Disorders of Iron Metabolism: Iron Deficiency and Overload / G. M. Brittenham // Hematology: Basic Principles and Practice / R. Hoffman, E. J. Benz, S. J.

Med. - 2012. - Vol. 366, No. 4. - P. 348-359]

Hereditary hemochromatosis, a condition in which the body accumulates excess iron is one of the most common genetic diseases in humans. In the US, about one million people have signs of hemochromatosis, and about one in �adih ten people can carry the gene for this metabolic disorder [M. Franchini Recent advances in hereditary hemochromatosis / M. Franchini, D. Veneri // Ann. Hematol. - 2005. - Vol. 84, No. 6. - P. 347-352; Fowler C. Hereditary hemochromatosis: pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management / C. Fowler // Crit. Care Nurs. Clin. North. Am. - 2008. - Vol. 20, No. 2. - P. 191-201]. Hemochromatosis is characterized by excessive absorption of iron from food, its accumulation in the organs of the body and injury, including serious and even fatal health consequences as cirrhosis, liver cancer, heart failure, diabetes, impotence, and arthritis.

Clinical thalassemia (major and minor) is a hereditary disease characterized by impaired synthesis of hemoglobin, which leads to lower education and increased destruction of red blood cells. [Ip W. H. Diagnosis and prevention of thalassemia / H. W. Ip, C. C. So // Crit. Rev. Clin. Lab. Sci. - 2013. - Vol. 50, No. 6. - P. 125-141.]. In patients with β-thalassemia or resistant anemia (e.g., myelodysplastic syndrome) who get frequent or regular red blood cell transfusions in combination with increased iron absorption due to inefficient erythropoiesis, rapidly developing iron overload [Survival and complications in thalassemia / C.

Inati // Blood Rev. - 2009. - Vol. 23, suppl. 1. - S. 9-13].

Iron toxicity begins to occur when the load exceeds the binding capacity of blood and tissue and carried�asanee iron accelerates the formation of free radicals of oxygen, leading to peroxidative damage of cells. In the absence of iron chelation patients with regular blood transfusions inevitably subjected to a progressive deterioration of the functions of the pancreas, liver and heart as a result of iron overload, which usually occurs in the second decade of life [Thuret I. Post-transfusional iron overload in the haemoglobinopathies / I. Thuret // C. R. Biol. - 2013. - Vol. 336, No. 3. - P. 164-172].

Iron overload remains the leading cause of death among patients with thalassemia in industrialized countries. Despite progress in the treatment of such diseases, mortality among patients with β-thalassemia and sickle cell anemia in the United States is 3 times higher than among the total population [Morbidity and mortality in chronically transfused subjects with thalassemia and sickle cell disease: A report from the multi-center study of iron overload / E. B. Fung, P. Harmatz, M. Milet [et al.] // Am. J. Hematol. - 2007. - Vol. 82, No. 4. - P. 255-265]. For these patients, the only option to reduce the risk of serious complications is continuous therapy with iron chelators [Monitoring long-term efficacy of iron chelation therapy by deferiprone and desferrioxamine in patients with beta-thalassaemia major: application of SQUID biomagnetic liver susceptometry / R. Fischer, F. Longo, P. Nielsen [et al.] // Br. J. Haematol. - 2003. - Vol. 121, No. 6. - P. 938-948].

Although transfusion-dependent anemia are the main cause of iron overload, there are other clinical situations such complication, in particular, transplantation of hemopet�ical cells [N. S. Majhail Iron overload in hematopoietic cell transplantation / N. S. Majhail, H. M. Lazarus, J. L. Burns // Bone Marrow transplan. - 2008. - Vol. 41, No. 12. - P. 997-1003]. It is also known that the reduction of iron content in some organs and tissues, even in the context of its normal level in the body, can be useful in neurodegenerative diseases [The role of metals in neurodegenerative diseases / L.

Standard for the treatment of iron overload, as well as an antidote in acute poisoning with iron compounds is considered to be Desferal®. It is also known as Deferoxamine, Deferoxamine methanesulfonate, Desferal, Desferal�, Gasperin, DFOM, DFO. On chemical structure is N-[5-{3-[(5-aminopentyl)oxycarbonyl]-propionamido}pentyl]-3-{[5-(N-ACET-amido)pentyl]carbamoyl}-propionyloxy acid. Desferal belongs to the pharmacological group "Detoxifying, including antidotes", CAS code 138-14-7, ATX: V03AC01 (owner of the brand - Novartis Pharma AG, Switzerland) [Desferal:[instruction]./ [Electronic resource]. - Access mode:]. He has a short elimination half-life from plasma (about 15 min) due to the combination of weak distribution and fast clearance; therefore, the distribution is limited to the plasma and cannot maintain the tank in other cell compartments. The drug is not effective when taken by mouth, absorbed as only 15% of the administered dose.

It forms complexes with trivalent ions of iron and aluminum; less binds divalent ions. This natural siderophore, chelating iron from the labile fraction of the intracellular pool, which quickly updated from the pool of Deposit. Desferal can bind iron, which is in the free form or is part of ferritin and hemosiderin, the Resulting compounds are excreted in the urine, which reduces abnormal deposits of iron in the tissues [Mechanism of action of iron chelators / V. I. Smirnov, G. N. Koltsova, Shcherbinina S. P. [and others] // Hematology and Transfusiology. - 2006. - No. 1. - S. 40-44].

At present, the use of Desferal (Deferoxamine) is common in treatment of patients with iron overload resulting from repeated transfusions. [Ware N. M. Evaluation and treatment of transfusional iron overload in children / H. M. Ware, J. L. Kwiatkowski // Pediatr. Clin. North. Am. - 2013. - Vol. 60, No. 6. - P. 1393-1406]. Minimum absorption of this drug from the gastrointestinal tract and a short half-life in the blood require a slow prolonged parenteral administration of the drug to achieve a negative iron balance as the main goal of effective chelation. Desferal administered in the form of a subcutaneous infusion duration 8-10 hours 3-5 times a week, using a special injector (pump) battery powered [Intensification of chelating-therapy in patients with thalassemia major / J. H. Laws, U. Göbel, A. Christaras [et al.] // Klin. Padiatr. - 2005. - Vol. 217, No. 3. - P. 120-125]. For a long period (almost a lifetime) use of Desferal (Deferoxamine) patients with thalassemia is associated with long-term survival without the complications associated with iron overload [Effectiveness and safety of ICL670 in iron-loaded patients with thalassaemia: a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-escalation trial / E. Nisbet-Brown, N. F. Olivieri, P. J. Giardina [et al.] // Lancet. - 2003. - Vol. 361, No. 9369. - P. 1597-1602]. Unfortunately, around the world, this therapy is assigned only a small number of patients with iron overload, due to poor receptivity to treatment and high treatment costs [yagudina R. I. Pharmacoeconomic analysis chelation therapy of patients with chronic posttransfusion the iron overload / yagudina R. I., Kulikov A. Yu., I. S. Krysanov // Pharmacoeconomics. - 2009. - No. 3. - S. 34-38]. In this case, patients with β-thalassemia, poorly compliant with instructions for the use of the drug, the probability of 25-year survival rate is only 32% [Survival and complications in patients with thalassemia major treated with transfusion and deferoxamine / C. Borgna-Pignatti, S. Rugolotto, P. De Stefano [et al.] // Haematologica. - 2004. - Vol. 89, No. 10. - P. 1187-1193].

The cost and inconvenience of applying Desferal has led to the search for orally active iron chelator, Deferiprone has been used in recent years for the oral treatment of patients suffering from thalassemia [Monitoring long-term efficacy of iron chelation therapy by deferiprone and desferoxamine in patients with beta-thalassaemia major: application of SQUID biomagnetic liver susceptometry / R. Fischer, F. Longo, P. Nielsen [et al.] // Br. J.

Alfantaki [et al.] // Anemia. - 2013. - Vol. 2013. - P. 121762]. Deferiprone (Ferriprox) was first approved for use in thalassemia in 1994 and registered in Europe and Asia [Savulescu J. Thalassaemia major: the murky story of deferiprone / J. Savulescu // BMJ. - 2004. - Vol.328, No. 7436. - P. 358-359], much later in the USA and Canada. On chemical structure it is a 3-hydroxy-1,2-dimethylpyridin-4(1H)-one, CAS code 30652-11-0, PBX V03AC02 (owner of the brand - ApoPharma Inc. (Toronto, Canada) [Deferiprone. - Wikipedia the Free Encyclopedia [Electroic resource]. - Regimen of access:].

The preparation is applied in the iron overload, including myocardial damage [Pat. IL153733 A, IPC A61K 31/44; A61K 31/4412; A61P 9/00.

He is more comfortable with long-term use, but the risk of developing agranulocytosis, thrombocytopathies and arthropathy limits the use of this drug [Use of deferiprone for iron chelation in patients with transfusion-dependent thalassaemia / S.

Blood Cancer. - 2013. - Vol.60, No. 12. - P. 1957-1962].

Another drug for the treatment of iron overload with by oral administration is Deferasirox (Exjade, ICL670, 4-[3,5-bis(2-hydroxyphenyl)-[1,2,4]-triazole-1-yl]benzoic acid) is a chelating drug that is triple-ligand with high affinity to iron (III) and linking it to the 2:1 ratio. Prolonged daily use of Deferaziroksa in adults and children with β-thalassemia or sickle cell anemia on the background of the ongoing transfusions resulted in a reduction of the total body iron, and reduced iron content in the liver was similar to that of Deferoxamine [Deferasirox for managing transfusional iron overload in people with sickle cell diease / J.

Bernaudin, G. L. Forni [et al.] // Br. J. Haematol. - 2011. - Vol.154, No. 3. - P. 387-397].

Deferasirox, as with other iron chelators, may cause side effects (impaired function of the gastrointestinal tract, skin rashes, increased activity of hepatic transaminase and creatinine, high frequency hearing loss, maculopathy and clouding of the lens of the eye (early cataracts) [A maculopapular-type eruption associated with deferasirox administration / A.

Chaudhary, Pullarkat V. // J. Med Blood. - 2013. - Vol. 4. - P. 101-110].

Deferiprone and Deferasirox - chelators non-biological origin, which is taken orally, some patients who cannot receive Desferal, but these compounds are less effective in binding iron (III) and less toxic. [Comparative efficacy and safety of deferoxamine, deferiprone and deferasirox on severe thalassemia: a meta-analysis of 16 randomized controlled trials / S. Xia, W. Zhang, L. Huang [et al.] // PLoS One. - 2013. - Vol. 8, No. 12. - e82662].

As you can see, the available iron chelators have some problems that require new methods of chelation of iron and the corresponding pharmacological agents, user-friendly, low-toxic and cheap enough, because in most cases it ID�t o long-term therapy.

Describes the process of obtaining chelated iron compounds involving amino-formyl-glycine dipeptide, but the resulting complex compound of iron intended for use in animal husbandry as feed additive, complementary deficiency of minerals, and may not apply in medicine, and its production method is carried out outside the body [Pat.

In this case, the receiving chelating aimed to use as the source of iron deficiency in the body and may not apply in the case of acute and chronic iron overload.

There is a way complexation to obtain the compounds of metals, specifically iron chelate in the form of its concentrated solution to�th is carried out by interaction of iron salts in an aqueous medium with a complexing agent, which is used as N,N,N',N'-ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid and citric acid, [Pat. 2458930 OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION, IPC C07F 15/02.

This method of iron chelation is simple, but takes place outside of the body and aims to obtain a solution for the nutrition of agricultural plants. It cannot be used for iron chelation as a therapeutic intervention in pathological conditions associated with overload of the body this element.

Proposed binding of iron ions using water-insoluble polymeric chelating agent, a polymer having the main chain and an aromatic ring attached to the chain through relationship-NH-CH2where the aromatic ring has the functional group in the form of-OH, -COOH or other radicals [Pat.

The insolubility in water suggests the possibility of selectively chelating biologically unstable iron, not joining in share�record processes in vivo however, such a chelator is not useful for medical applications, especially for sterile dosage forms required for parenteral administration in case of acute poisoning by the salts of iron.

Known iron chelator that is used together with pyrithione [Pat. MH A, IPC A61K 31/555. Personal care compositions comprising a pyrithione and an iron chelator / C. W. Saunders; Youngquist, R.

However, the proposed chelators are not specifically recommended for the treatment of an overload of iron in the body, or acute intoxication with salts of iron. In addition, based on the chemical �re proposed complexions, we can assume that they have significant toxicity, particularly hepatotoxicity.

Known synthesis and description of derivatives of pyridoxal isonicotinohydrazide hydrazone suitable for oral dosage form, soluble in water and are capable of chelation in conditions of iron overload and other metals [Pat.

However, in the present invention, refers to already used the tool Deferasirox and a new form or pharmaceutical composition on its basis and the method of application for the chelation of iron can drastically reduce the side effects of this drug.

The chelation of iron overload of iron in the body are analogues of desperation and describes their use [Pat. US 2013210870 A1, IPC C07D 277/12.

However, the claimed to invent the�research Institute of matter characterized nephrotoxicity in animal experiments. In addition, the proposed compounds are in the preclinical stage of the study and it is impossible to say what will be the results of clinical trials, because the data disclosed a significant species specificity.

Known invention relating to the amphiphilic chelators of metals that have the specificity to iron and demonstrate neuroprotective and good transport properties in lipophilic environments [Pat. US 2012058945 A1, IPC A61K 31/4412; A61K 31/47; A61K 31/497; A61K 38/00; A61K 38/09; A61K 38/22; A61K 45/06; A61P 25/00; A61P 25/16; A61P 25/28; C07D 213/69; C07D 215/26; C07D 295/15; C07D 295/205; C07K 14/575; C07K 14/70; C07K 5/10; C07K 7/06; C07K 7/22; C07K 7/23.

Function chelator of iron is provided preferably residues of 8-hydroxyquinoline, hydroxamate or pyridinone. Compounds of the present invention are useful for the treatment and prevention of diseases, disorders or conditions associated with iron overload and oxidative stress, namely neurodegenerative and cerebrovascular diseases, tumor diseases, hemochromatosis, thalassemia, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and several other diseases. The proposed N-hydroxypyridine-2-ones and 3-hydroxypyridine-4-ones perspective� for oral use (hydroxypyridinone CP20, or Deferiprone is used in clinical practice); some hydroxypyridinone (for example, CP20, CP24, CP94) able to penetrate the blood-brain barrier and have structural similarity between the catechol group is a chelator of iron in the structure of DOPA. In another embodiment of this method the function of chelation is provided by hydroxamates, as hydroxamate known as iron chelators, and desferrioxamine In (Desferal) has long been the drug of choice for treatment of iron overload. As you can see, the main emphasis in this invention is the use of previously known iron chelators for new indications and suggests ways of using new agents for the chelation of iron.

Closest to the claimed (prototype) is a means to reduce the content of metals, especially iron, in mammals, representing conjugates of Deferoxamine, derivatives and analogues [Pat. US 2010273847 A1, IPC A61K 31/16; A61K 31/4188; A61P 1/16; A61P 25/00; A61P 31/10; A61P 33/06; A61P 39/04; C07C 259/06; C07D 495/04. Desferrioxamine conjugates, derivatives and analogues / R.

The compounds referred to in this way (Biotin-deferoxamine, adamantane-deferoxamine, benzo-15-crown-5-4-carboxyl-deferoxamine or 4-methyl-phenoxyacetate-deferoxamine), like himself Deveraux�mine are iron chelators and can be used in case of overload of iron in the body as a result of dysmetabolic disorders and regular blood transfusions. They can also be used to treat cancer, malaria, fungal infections, the development of which the role of iron and (or) free-radical oxidation. Such compounds have a greater hydrophobicity compared with deferoxamine and the possibility of oral administration, they are more resistant to enzymatic degradation and have a longer half-life. Believe that the presence of functional groups in the N-terminal sequence of new connections will reduce the side effects associated with this section of the Deferoxamine molecule. In addition, conjugation with substances such Deferiprone or Desferasirox makes it possible to participate in the chelation of iron at both ends of the molecule. At the same time, the proposed analogues, insufficiently studied in experiments on animals, especially not studied and have not been applied in the clinic, which does not allow sufficiently to evaluate their effectiveness and safety.

Thus, the disadvantages of the known means of iron chelation is that complexing agents are substances that have many side effects or pharmacokinetic properties that hinder their clinical application (e.g., short half-life, limited distribution, or the need to use only one route of administration), and n�emerging at the stage of preclinical trials with uncertain prospects of use in the clinic.

The object of the invention is to expand the Arsenal of tools the chelation of iron ions, which ensure the reduction of its content in the body when enteral and parenteralna the introduction of a minimal toxicity, as proven in Toxicological and clinical studies.

The problem is solved by using as a chelating means 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate (Mexidol) for the treatment of an overload of iron in the body or hyperchromatosis.

The technical result is that when using this agent in acute and chronic load iron sufficiently high efficiency of the process of chelation with low toxicity Mexidol, which provides the prospects of its biomedical applications.

To obtain the effect of chelation in vivo, a solution of 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate containing an effective dose of the drug (100-50 mg/kg of body weight in animal experiments), administered at the same time orally or parenterally in the acute load iron or multiply one of these ways to achieve negative iron balance in chronic situations.

As a criterion for the evaluation of the connection formation between 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine the succinate and iron ions in the model system chosen electronic scanning microscopy and interfactory and�Aliz, to determine the elemental composition of the compounds formed and their compliance with the previously known substances, and in the body - determination of iron concentration in serum and iron-sequestering organs (liver, spleen).

The invention is illustrated by the following examples.

Example 1. The interaction of blood plasma with ions of iron (III) outside the body

Materials and methods. The crystal hydrate of ferric chloride (III) (FeCl3) was dissolved in distilled water in an amount necessary to prepare a 1% solution (weight/volume). The concentration of ions of Fe3+before and after interaction with 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine the succinate controlled photocolorimetry with the use of salicylic acid or potassium thiocyanate on the previously prepared calibration curve. Substance 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate was dissolved in 1% solution of ferric chloride (III) in an amount such that their molar ratio was 2:1. The obtained reaction product were examined for solubility in polar and nonpolar solvents and a melting temperature. Selected crystals were subjected to washing on the filter SCHOTT hot solvents in the following sequence: water-DMFA-N-methylpyrrolidone-toluene-ethanol-hexane, and then dried at 90-100°C. the Purified crystals were subjected to elemental analysis�. For the quantitative determination of carbon and hydrogen was used the method of Prepa for the quantitative determination of nitrogen - Dumas method [lip veil. Methods of organic chemistry: Methods of analysis. Vol. 2. - M.: Goskomstat, 1963. - S. 106-109, 180-188]. In addition, the obtained complex was investigated by scanning electron microscopy with spectroscopy using a raster scanning electron microscope (Cam Scan 4D (CamScan Electron Optics Ltd, UK) [Gorelik S.

On the basis of elemental analysis calculated the empirical formula of the resulting complex.

Skakov. Moscow: MISIS, 1994. - 328 p.]. The diffraction patterns were recorded on a diffractometer DRON-UM1 (OAO NPP "Burevestnik", Russia) at the emission of Co Ka line anode (1.79021 Å) with a graphite monochromator in the reflected beam when shooting geometry for Bragg-Brentano (in angular range 4-80 degrees with a step of 0.1 deg and exposure of 1 s. For the study of thermal degradation of the reaction product it is sequentially heated in air to temperatures of 120, 200, 300 and 400°C and record�Ali cooled diffraction pattern of the samples. According to interfaceware analysis attempted to identify the reaction product in the database PDF-2 [PDF-2. PCPDFWIN Versio129619n 2.1, - 2000, JCPDS-ICDD].

Results and discussion. In the interaction of 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate with 1% solution of FeCl3in the ratio 2:1 forms a gel-like substance structure, dark red. The supernatant is qualitative reaction for ions of Fe+3with potassium thiocyanate (KSCN), showed their absence, indicating that the iron had reacted completely.

At low concentrations of FeCl3the gel is not formed. When the concentration of Fe+3the substance acquires a deep red color and greater density. When drying of the gel formed white crystals and amorphous substance of a red color.

White crystals soluble in water, but more soluble in ethanol. Upon evaporation of the solvent they have the same melting point as 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate. Sample mixing does not detect depression of the melting temperature, which suggests that this is 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate, which is not reacted.

Since the unreacted substance is well soluble in ethanol, purification of the complex was performed using the solvent, until then, until the supernatant is not re�taval be detected 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate (white needle crystals, identified by melting point) followed by rinsing with hot organic solvents on the filter SCHOTT.

Exploring the resulting reaction product by comparison of melting points, it was shown that this material is 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine the succinate, which has a melting point of 112°C. To the obtained compound, the melting point is 128 to 130°C, which shows that it is not only different from Mexidol, but also more complex molecular structure.

It was also found that in the interaction of the gel formed in the reaction between FeCl3and derivatives 3-hydroxypyridine, with acid chloride (1:1) it dissolves; staining disappears. The proton acid chloride may accede to the nitrogen atom of the pyridine ring, which contains an unshared pair of electrons. This leads to disruption of the gel structure, which indirectly confirms the involvement of nitrogen atom in its formation.

The results of the study of the complex by elemental analysis showed that it contains: C - 25,63%; 25,74%; H- 4,05%; 4,22%; 3,95%; N - 1,01%; 1,04%.

When studying the reaction product of Fe+3and derivatives 3-hydroxypyridine by scanning electron microscopy with mass spectrometry is shown in its crystalline structure (Fig.1) and four changes�relations in stochastically selected sites installed content of elements in mass %: C to 33.52-35,29%; O 46,12-60,95%; Fe 4,02-18,85%. The content of elements in atom%: C 41,98-46,10%o; O 47,62-56,52%; Fe from 1.07 to 5.58%. The discrepancy between the results of the analysis, especially on the carbon content may be due to the peculiarities of the methods used, in particular, use a hardware-based carbon-containing tape during electron microscopy.

The diffraction pattern of the initial sample substances produced in the reaction between Fe+3and 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine the succinate, are shown in Fig. 2. It is characterized by the presence of several broadened and partially overlapping diffraction peaks, indicating a weak (low) crystallinity of the material tested. Characteristics of the peaks are presented in Table 1.

In the framework of x-ray diffraction database PDF-2 the substance of the reaction product are not identified. The presence of iron in the composition of the sample confirmed the formation of iron oxide (II, III) Fe3O4when heating the sample in air to 300°C, which is manifested in the change of the diffraction pattern to the characteristic of the oxide (Fig. 3, curve 4).

Comparison of the diffraction pattern of the obtained complex diffraction pattern with 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate [us Pat. 2453538 C1 of the Russian Federation, IPC C07D 213/65.

(RU); stated. and patent holder LLC "PharmaMed" (RU). - No. 2011114873/04; Appl. 06.04.2011; publ. 20.06.2012.] detects a significant difference in the position and intensity of their peaks, which may indicate that the analyzed substance, different from the original substances, which entered into reaction.

Sample heating up to 120 and 200°C leads to a directed change in the intensity of the diffraction peaks is a decrease in the intensity of peaks No. 1, 3, 5, and increase the intensity of the peak No. 2 and, thus, to the partial destruction of its structure (see Fig. 3). A further temperature increase causes the disappearance of the peaks characteristic of the starting sample, and the appearance of peaks of iron oxide (II, III), indicating a destruction of the organic component of the material tested. Data on thermal transformations also favor the formation of a new organo-inorganic compounds based on the source component.

The formation of coloured complex in the reaction between iron and 3-hydroxypyridine can be explained by the fact that 2-ethyl-6-mthyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate is in the phenolic nucleus, which is the typical reaction of interaction with FeCl3leading to the formation of the complex, shown in Fig. 4.

Calculated according to the element�wow analysis the simplest formula of the product (or its kristallogidrata) the reaction between 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine a succinate and a soluble salt of iron (III) has a view of FeC 11-15H21N3O18.that suggests that the binding of 1 mol of iron ions involved 3 mol derived 3-hydroxypyridine in partial degradation of its molecules. At the same time, the comparison of the empirical formula with the formula 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate suggests that the actual ratio of atoms in a molecule is a multiple of a basic, and are present in the molecule coordination. Because the substance formed in the reaction between 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine the succinate and Fe+3has the properties of a gel, it is also likely to exist in the structure of hydrogen bonds.

Thus, as a result of chemical interaction of 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate ions with Fe3+formed persistent colored complex with high molecular weight and complex component (organic-inorganic) composition, not identified among the previously known compounds.

Example 2. The action of Mexidol in the acute load of iron in the body

Materials and methods. In the experiment used white rats of Wistar line weighing 180-200 g (PE "Biomolecules", Ukraine). During the experiment they were kept in standard plastic cages and received pelleted feed for laboratory rodents (PE "Biomolecules",Ukraine) and water demand. The experiments received approval by the Commission of bioethics of UGUSU "Ukrainian medical stomatological Academy".

The grouping of the experiments had the following appearance at 6-7 animals in each group:

1. Intact rats;

2. Intact rats with the introduction of the solvent (control);

3. Acute load of iron (reference pathology);

4. Acute load iron + Mexidol;

5. Acute load iron + Desferal.

As the load of the substance used iron (III) chloride FeCl3in toxic dose of 2000 mg/kg body weight, was administered intragastrically once with a probe in the form of a 20% solution of FeCl3prepared from 6-water kristallogidrata. When choosing the dose was guided by the literature data that the administration to rats per os anhydrous FeCl3LD50=450 mg/kg [Ferrous chloride, 4-hydrate. - MSDS Number: F1678. Effective date 11/10/05. Supercedes 02/18/03 [Electronic resource]. - Regimen of access:].

Mexidol was administered to the animals 10 minutes after injection of a solution of ferric chloride at the same time intragastrically and intraperitoneally. His solution was prepared ex tempore by using substance 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate (Bion, Russia). The stomach tube was introduced 1 ml of a 25% solution of Mexidol (1250 mg/kg body weight) intramuscularly with 0.5 ml of 4% solution of Mexidol (100 mg/kg mA�si body). The dose was chosen based on the range of effective and toxic doses of this drug [Voronina T. A. MEXIDOL® main effects, mechanism of action, use [Electronic resource] / T. A. Voronina. - Access mode: 070196.htm], and based on the analogy with the use in such a situation, a known chelator of iron - Desferal. Desferal (Novartis Pharma, Switzerland) was used as a comparison drug. His solution was prepared from lyophilized powder in vials ex tempore and was administered intragastrically (250 mg/kg) and intraperitoneally at a dose of 80 mg/kg. The dose and route of administration of Desferal was chosen in accordance with the recommendations for its use in acute poisoning with salts of iron [Desferal: [instruction]. / [Electronic resource]. - Access mode:]. The rats in the control group thus introduced the solvent is water for injection. After 5 days, animals were killed under ether anesthesia by means of blood collection from the heart until it stops. In the serum, liver and spleen was determined by the iron content by atomic emission spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma instrument Optima 2100 DV (Perkin Elmer, USA) [Determination of chemical elements in biological fluids and drugs by means of atomic emission spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma and mass spectrometry with a water-saving model�UPE connected plasma: 4.1.1482-03. - The official. ed. - M.: The Ministry Of Health Of Russia, 2003. - 16 S. - (Normative document of the Ministry of health of the Russian Federation. Methodical instructions)]. The obtained data were statistically processed using the computer program Statistica for Windows V. 8.0.

Results and discussion. Within 5 days from the date of introduction of iron salts is not marked changes in the behavior and appearance of animals, with the exception of staining of urine in a brown-red color in the groups treated with Mexidol and Desferal. When inspecting the internal organs of animals after euthanasia macroscopic changes characteristic of toxic shock, is not identified.

The iron content in serum, liver and spleen of animals are presented in Table 2.

Indicators of iron metabolism animals with the introduction of the solvent did not differ from the parameters of intact white rats (see Table 2).

Load of iron was characterized by the increase of iron content in serum of animals 3.4 times (p<0,001) compared to the control. The iron content in the liver was increased 1.4-fold (p<0.05) and in the spleen was increased 1.5-fold (p<0.05) compared with control values.

The use of Mexidol on the background load of iron caused a decrease in the concentration of this element in serum 3 times (p<0.002 inch) compared to the control p�Teologia (see Table 2). In animals of this group, the iron content in the spleen was decreased 1.5-fold (p<0.05) compared with the introduction of iron salts without pharmacological correction. In the liver under the influence of Mexidol significant changes in iron content were observed, but there was a trend towards lower concentrations (p<0,1).

When you use Desferal there was a decrease of iron concentration in serum was 2.9 times (p<0.05) compared with the pathological background (see Table 2). The content of iron in the liver of animals decreased in 1.7 times (p<0.01) and was significantly lower not only than with a load of iron without pharmacological treatment, but also in the control groups. At the same time, the content of this element in the spleen did not change significantly and was significantly higher than when therapeutic introduction of Mexidol.

Thus, when a single load of iron (2000 mg/kg, intragastric) Mexidol, introduced intragastrically (1250 mg/kg) and intraperitoneally (100 mg/kg), decreases the content of this element in serum and "load" the authorities that the severity of the blood is not inferior, and in the spleen greater than the effect of the standard iron chelator - Desferal.

Example 3. The action of Mexidol in the chronic load iron

Materials and methods. In the experiment used white wing�s-males of Wistar line weighing 180-200 g (PE "Biomolecules", Ukraine). Before and during the experiment they were kept in standard plastic cages and received pelleted feed for laboratory rodents (PE "Biomolecules", Ukraine) and water demand. The experiments received approval by the Commission of bioethics of UGUSU "Ukrainian medical stomatological Academy".

The grouping of the experiments had the following appearance, with 8 animals in each group:

1. Intact rats;

2. Intact rats with the introduction of the solvent (control);

3. Intact rats with the introduction of solvent + Mexidol;

4. Chronic load of iron (reference pathology);

5. Chronic load iron + Mexidol.

Chronic load iron reproduced by repeated parenteral administration to animals of a preparation of iron [Study of the eye and lacrimal glands in experimental iron overload in rats in vivo / M. Repanti, S. P. Gartaganis, N. M. Nikolakopoulou [et al.] // Anat. Sci. Int. - 2008. - Vol. 83. - P. 11-18]. As such a drug used iron (III) hydroxide of polyisomaltosate in the form of a preparation ferrum Lek (Lek, Slovenia) [FERRUM LEK® for the on/m introduction (FERRUM LEK). Reference Vidal drugs in Russia [Electronic resource]. - Access mode: ~]. It was injected to rats intraperitoneally at a dose of 7.5 mg Fe/1 animal every 3-4 days for 4 weeks, which amounted to 10 injections. One group of animals at the same time inside�rushino Mexidol was administered at a dose of 50 mg/kg of body weight. A solution of Mexidol was prepared ex tempore from its substance, obtained from the manufacturer (Bion, Russia), using as solvent water for injections. Animals of the control groups were injected solvent or a solution of Mexidol (50 mg/kg), following the specified schema. 3 days after the last injection the animals were euthanized. During the autopsy was performed the examination of the internal organs. In the serum, liver and spleen was investigated the content of elemental iron as described in example 2. The obtained data were statistically processed using standard computer programs.

Results and discussion. The content of Fe in serum, liver and spleen of animals that received injections of the solvent (control) were the same as in intact animals (table. 3).

Course introduction of Mexidol in the dose of 50 mg/kg of intact animals caused a tendency to Snejniy iron content in serum and load bodies in comparison with intact animals (p<0.1) and in the spleen and compared with the control group (p<0.2) (see Table 3).

Chronic load of iron was characterized by increased serum iron in 1.4 times (p<0,02) compared with intact animals and 1.6-fold (p<0,005) compared with the control (see Table 3). The content of this element in �Iceni was increased by 1.6 times compared with the intact group (p< 0.05) and 1.9-fold (p<0,001) compared to animals of control group received injections of the solvent. In the spleen of rats with a load of iron was observed with increasing the concentration of iron in 1.3-1.4 times (p<0.05) compared with intact animals and control. Such changes may indicate increased as transport pool of iron and its deposition on the background of the introduction of this additional element for 4 weeks in total dose 375 MrFe/kg of body weight.

Mexidol has reduced the level of serum iron in 1.3 times (p<0.05) compared with load iron without pharmacological treatment (see Table 3). The liver and spleen iron content was decreased equally in 1.4 times (p<0,005) compared to the control pathology.

As you can see, the use of Mexidol (50 mg/kg) during chronic load of iron reduces the accumulation of this element in the body and normalize its content in the blood serum and organs depot.

Thus, the experiments shown that there is a possibility of removal of excess iron from the body in the case of acute or chronic load this element through the use of derivatives of 3-hydroxypyridine, in particular 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate, based on the chemical interaction between this production�, relatives and ions of iron (III) with the formation of persistent colored complex with high molecular weight and complex component (organic-inorganic) composition, unidentifiable among the previously known compounds. The inventive method may have a biomedical application that is provided as its immediate result in the form of elimination of excess iron from the body, and the pharmacological and Toxicological properties of 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate (Mexidol), offered as a chelating agent. Effective dose (100-50 mg/kg of body weight in animal experiments) injected simultaneously orally or parenterally in the acute load iron or multiply one of these ways to achieve negative iron balance in chronic situations.

The use of 2-ethyl-6-methyl-3-hydroxypyridine succinate as chelating agents for treatment of an overload of iron in the body or hemochromatosis.
