Paper Abstract

To create a model of development of atherosclerosis and other major human diseases the structural and functional peculiarities of bradytrophic tissues were studied in series of investigations. Sclera, cornea, tendon, cartilage and some other tissues belong to bradytrophic tissues, which nutrition is the result of the diffusion of extravasal liquid. In this fragment of research isotropic properties of cartilage tissue were established before optical enlightenment, induced by tissue immersion, and after it. The sample of sarcoma (muscular tissue's tumor) is also isotropic. By its optical properties and enlightenment dynamics sarcoma is very like cartilage tissue. The enlightenment rate in the indicated tissue significantly higher than in sclera.
