During modeling of esophageal alkali burns 1 and 2 degrees in immature rats were observed violations of various metabolic systems, melanin administration helped to normalize the biochemical parameters. It was shown that under the esophageal burns there occurred violations of protein (total protein, albumin), nitrogen metabolism (creatinine, urea) metabolism of carbohydrate (glucose) and lipids (cholesterol), changed the activity of enzymes (GOT, GPT, CC), violated fluid and electrolyte balance (K +, Na +, Cl-, Ca2 +, Mg2 +, phosphates), whilethe introduction of melanin contributed to the normalization of these indicators. The most effective dose were of 0.5 mg/ kg and 1 mg/kg. There were found anti-toxic properties of melanin, which may be a promising drug for the normalization of metabolism in patients with burns of esophagus and prevent its complications.
