Summary

The author studied the effect of vitamin B12 on the reparative regeneration of skeletal muscle tissue in sexually mature male rats. A standard injury was inflicted on all the animals. In comparison with control animals reactive changes in the injured muscle were more pronounced in rats which received vitamin B12. These changes involved increased disintegration of one part of the muscle fibers situated at some distance from the wound, as well as progressive morpho-physiological reconstruction of a large number of muscle fibers with abundant formation of myosymplasts. In rats which received vitamin B12 the formation of young muscular elements was intensified owing to the active regenerative reconstruction of muscle fibers.
