During the esophageal burns first and second degree, were observed the increase of total proteolytic activity and of the main proteinase (metalloproteinases and serine). Experimental melanin correction at a dose of 0.1 mg / kg contributed to the normalization of the pathological increase of total proteolytic activity and the activity of the main proteinase (metalloproteinases and serine), which indicates the normalization of the proteolysis system.
