Rise in the number of unfavourable outer effects makes hightened demands for the protective systems of children, immune system in particular, that under climatic conditions, is manifested by the increase of respiratory allergoses in Crimea (Ukraine).Search of new methods of rehabilitation of children with OB appears to be actual. With the aim scientists of the Crimea worked out the biological active additions (BAA) ’Biotrof 4‘ and ’Bipolan.‘ The purpose of our investigation was to study the role of BAA ’Biotrof 4‘ and ’Bipolan‘ in complex rehabilitation of 130 children (7-14 years old) with obstructive bronchitis under the conditions of sanatorium. Immunologic investigation of the cellular, humoral, nonspecific immunity was conducted in dynamics. The therapy included sun-bathers, bathing in sea, valuable nourishment, sanation of the foci of infection (electrophoresis, throat gargling with therma-mineral water). 39 children also took the natural product ’Biotrof 4‘ and 40 children took ’Bipolan.‘ On addmission in the sanatorium the children with OB revealed the lowering of Ig A and increase of Ig M, that testified the presence of antigenic load (21% of children had the foci of chronic infection). The absolute number of T-lymphocites was decreased. After rehabilitation all chidren revealed the improvement of general condition and immunologic indexes, but the number of CD-3 (the total number of T-lymhocites) and phagocitis activity only became normal in children getting ’Biotrof 4‘ and ’Bipolan.‘ The latter allows us to recommend to include ?Biotrof 4? and ?Bipolan? into the medicinal and prophylactic nourishment of those being in poor health because of respiratory diseases.
