Our special interest in the study of the role of amino acids in the pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis and its accompanying cardiovascular pathology in circulatory failure is due to several reasons. So, atherosclerosis is characterized not only by disturbances in the metabolic flows of carbohydrate (inhibition of gluconeogenesis and activation of glycolysis), lipid (activation of lipolysis, ketosis), but also protein (proteinand hypoalbuminemia), hyperglobulinemia and negative nitrogen balance) [1-18]. There is comparatively little data in the available literature on changes in the spectrum (pool, fund) of free plasma amino acids against the background of atherosclerosis. Only a few works are devoted to a comparative assessment and interpretation of changes in the pool of free amino acids at different stages of atherosclerosis and in the dynamics of its treatment [12,19]. The question of the information content of the established changes in the levels of individual amino acids in atherosclerosis and their significance in comparison with other clinical and biochemical criteria remains practically unclear. The unresolved problem of the choice of individual amino acids in the amino acids used for the directed correction of metabolic imbalance in atherosclerosis.
