In the optically active pharmaceutical substances quality control there should be considered the contribution of induced chiral GHC of water to the optical rotation value that depends on the isotopic D/H ratio, the substance nature and the form of its existence at given pH.
Kinetic analysis by means of low-angle laser light scattering has been used for the investigation into active pharmaceutical ingredients solubility depending on the content of heavy isotope of hydrogen H-2(1) (D) in water. Rate constants of active pharmaceutical ingredient solubility differ approximately by similar to 1.5 times for the two types of water with different deuterium/protium ratios, natural deionized high-ohmic water (D/H= 140 ppm) and deuterium-depleted water (D/H= 4 ppm). Results are to be utilized in order to control the quality of pharmaceutical substances with the purpose of dissolution quantitative evaluation, as well as with the aim of tackling the issue of new active pharmaceutical ingredients' low solubility while developing drugs.
The article contains a substantiation of a necessity of a new standard for assessment of the quality of genetically safe drinking water designed for consumption by man. Requirements to the quality of such water include 76 indices and are presented by 10 individual groups; extended is the number of indices of drinking waters of the level of toxicity (biotesting in 7 test objects), normative references to the methods of their control.
Peculiarities of the vital activity of organisms at different concentrations of the D/H isotope ratio in water have been studied. It was established that many organisms react in different ways to both high and low concentrations of deuterium in water resulting in the reduction or enhancement of the activity of metabolic processes. However, the majority of test organisms have optimal indicators within the limits of natural D/H isotope ratio in water. The experiments with human cells in vitro revealed that the reduced deuterium concentrations significantly changed the vital activity indicators of cultures in deuterium-depleted water media. It was found out that not all taxonomic groups of organisms could be sensitive to changes of the D/H isotope ratio in water.
Basic principles of forming test systems for biotesting of natural and drinking waters, and the factors affecting test-systems during the biotesting procedure have been studied. New directions of selecting sensitive test reactions of organisms and test criteria for the quality assessment of natural and drinking waters based on the results of comprehensive biotesting are proposed. The universal point system for drinking water quality estimation was developed. It is based on summation of biotesting results using 4-5 species of animal and plant test-organisms of different systematic and trophic levels. In addition, the total toxicity index of water samples under investigation was also developed. The findings were used in the preparation of the State Standard of Ukraine "Quality of water. Comprehensive biotesting of natural water. Requirements to the selection and cultivation of test organisms. Water quality classification based on the point system".
The existence of stable formations representing submillimeter density inhomogeneities in aqueous solutions was confirmed by using the laser light diffraction (LALLS) method and also the dynamic (DLS) and two-dimensional light scattering methods. The effect of low angle light scattering by giant water clusters depends on the presence of ions or dissolved substances in water solution, and also on the concentration of deuterium (heavy hydrogen isotope). It has been shown that the reduction of deuterium concentration results in the reduction of light scattering ability of protein nanoparticle preparations and water. The formation of long-living discrete water cluster structures possessing chiral properties was substantiated for explaining the manifestation of effects of weak impacts and low concentrations on biological objects.
A technique for controlling the catalytic process using the impact on heterogeneous catalyst capable of staying in at least two conformational states has been described. The distinctive feature of conformers is their topological difference in the region of space of no less than 1 nm(3). Binding of ligands or the presence of high intensity electric field makes it possible to change in a specified way the catalyst affinity to reaction's substrates/products.
A kinetic method of biotesting of aqueous solutions using isolated cells of unicellular organism Spirostomum ambigua has been described. A kinetic scheme of interaction of cellular biosensor with ligands based on the Michaelis-Menten mechanism was proposed. It was shown that the death rate of S. ambigua featured the Arrhenius-type dependence on temperature. The activation energy was determined for different toxicants and drugs. For many compounds the activation energy of slow stage of the process of cellular biosensor death linearly correlates with parameter DL50 for the same substances at their oral administration to laboratory animals.
Arrhenius kinetic principles, in particular, E-a values, were used to assess the biological activity of drug substances in aqueous solutions with different D/H ratios. The obtained activation energies indicated that deuterium-depleted solutions had lower toxicity and biological activity.
