The article describes the remediation of myocardium structure characteristics provided by Quercetinum under the influence of 0.01 LD50 mercury chloride (II) in rats at chronic exposure. Ultrastructural and metabolic reorganization of myocardium tissue was studied by electron microscopic and histochemical techniques. Quercetinum reduces energy imbalance in the myocardium, shows membrane-stabilizing activity, and promotes stabilization and normalization of the function of membranes by direct biochemical interaction of the membrane organelles of the body’s cells.
