Abstract : There is a limited number of studies on the problem of the effect of vibration on biochemical indicators. In studies by M. I. Kuznetsov, Yu. F. Ulanov, N. L. Chelnikov (1959), Ye. I. Andreyeva-Galanina (1963) it was noted that the effect of general vibration greatly reduces the concentration of vitamins C, B1, and B2, and also causes a decrease in creatinine. Similar changes were noticed in concrete workers who had been subjected to general vibration in plants which produced reinforced concrete items. In the present work studies were made of possible changes in a number of protein and vitamin metabolic indicators in animals under the effect of general vibration at frequencies of 20 and 50 Hz and amplitudes of 50, 200, and 400 microns. For this purpose the authors determined the total concentration of albumin, albumin fractions, and vitamin C in the blood and vitamins of the B group in the urine and studied the intensity of the redox processes.
