Paper Abstract

It is a well known fact that the increasing of heavy metal concentration in biological tissue leads to serious pathology changes in the human organism. As blood is the lyotropic liquid crystal the attempts to use the electrophysical methods of liquid crystal investigations for the discovery of blood parameters changes were carried out. The experiments were carried out in the magnetic field of 1,3 T with frequency 1 kHz. The investigations conducted in the magnetic field showed that the increase of concentration of heavy metals in blood result in the linear decease of conductivity anisotropy and dielectric anisotropy values. On the basis of the obtained results a new hypothesis of heavy metal influence on the electrophysical parameters of blood, as well as an express-method of blood diagnostic of heavy metal concentration have been proposed.
