We may thus conclude that the preparation “galascorbin”, which possesses properties of vitamins C and P, exerts a definite stimulatory effect on repair processes in injured tissues, which gives prospects for the future clinical use of the drug on a wide scale.

Administration of vitamin B1, in these experimental conditions, has no appreciable influence on the course of the atrophic process and on the biochemical indices of the energy metabolism of the injured muscles.

Vitamin B1, injected simultaneously with galascorbin in proportions of 1∶10 (5 mg thiamin and 50 mg galascorbin per kg body weight), abolishes the stimulating action of the galascorbin on the repair processes in the injured muscles.

This observation provides evidence of the necessity for further experimental investigation of the principles governing the use of vitamins in medical practice.
