The method of vital staining was used in experimentally-induced tuberculosis for the study of the physiological condition of the cells of the cross-striated muscle.

It was established that at the early stages of this infection when no morphological changes are, as yet, present in internal organs, substantial changes take place in the cells of the skeletal muscles. These changes are reflected in the change of the sorptive properties of the cellular sarcoplasm.

The dynamics of the sorptive power is not the same in all cases but has a regular wave-like biphasic character. The sorptive power of the cells is intensively increased with increase of the morphological changes in internal organs.

The method of vital staining demonstrated that the cells of the skeletal muscle do not remain intact and are actively involved in the reaction of the organism to tuberculous infection.
