Abstract: Purpose of the study. Analyzing the dynamics of VEGF-А, TGF-β and their receptors in the lung tissues in rats with antitumor effect of 1,3-diethylbenzimidazolium triiodide (Stellanin).Material and methods. The study included white outbred rats weighing 180–220 g. The main group included males (n=27) and females (n=27) with sarcoma 45 (s45) inoculated into the subclavian vein but not developed in the lungs (2×106 cells in 0.5 ml of saline) due to the subsequent intragastric administration of Stellanin (0.4 mg/kg once a day) according to an intermittent scheme: administration for 5 days and a break for 2 days. The control group included males (n=14) and females (n=14) without treatment with growing s45 in the lungs. Intact groups included 5 males and 5 females. After 4, 5 and 8 weeks of the experiment animals were decapitated, and levels of VEGF-A, sVEGF-R1, sVEGF-R2, TGF-β and sTGFβR2 were measured in 10% lung homogenates by ELISA (CUSABIO BIOTECH Co., Ltd., China).Results. Lung tissues of intact females showed 1.4 times (pConclusions. Stellanin prevents the development of malignant process in the lungs by inhibiting neoangiogenesis (deficiency of VEGF-A and excess of sVEGF-R1) and suppressing the proliferation of malignant cells (TGF-β growth).
