Increase of concentration of pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-1β, TNF-α) is fixed in blood serum at carrageenan-induced rat paw inflammation, as well as increase of the content of reactive oxygen species (superoxide radical, hydrogen peroxide). At introduction of the preparation on the basis of chondroitin sulfate the level of pro-inflammatory cytokines and reactive oxygen species in blood serum decreases, while the concentration of IL10 increases in 1,7 times concerning the group of animals with сarrageenan-induced inflammation.
