Purpose: to investigate the effects of low-intensity electromagnetic radiation on the process of dehydration self-organization of bacterial lipopolysaccharide. Materials and Methods. The method of wedge dehydration has been used to study the structure formation of bacterial lipopolysaccharide. Image-phases analysis included their qualitative characteristics, as well as the calculation of quantitative indicators, followed by statistical analysis. Results. UHF-Radiation (1GHz, 0,1 uW/cm2, 10 min) has led to the changes in the suspension system of the LPS-saline reflected in the kinetics of structure formation. Conclusion. 1 GHz corresponds to the natural frequency of oscillation of water clusters and, presumably, the effect of UHF on structure of LPS mediates through the changes in water-salt environment. Under these conditions, properties of water molecules of hydration and possibly the properties of hydrophobic and hydrophilic regions in the molecule of LPS, which can affect the ability of toxin molecules to form aggregates change. Therefore the lipopolysaccharide structure modification may result in the change of its toxic properties.

The prospective research with some elements of double-blind study has been done to investigate accuracy of our overheated resonance radio-emission in identification of some serious inflammations of internals of a thorax. A new method of studies - trance-resonant functional topography- has been used.
The authors made an investigation with the help of the “Trance-resonant functional topograph (TRF- topograph)” apparatus in 250 patients (in 120 patients with pneumonia and in 50 patientwith acute bronchitis) and in 80 healthy persons.
It was found that patient had a rise of the resonant- waves reaction as above the region of a pathological process (inflammation) and total the resonant- waves reaction in region of examination.
After treatment in many patients there was found elevation of the resonant-waves response in healthy persons.
Some new diagnostical criteria for identification and localization of inflammatory chest disease were presented and some problems of diagnostics ofinflammation of lower respiratory tract (pneumonia, acute bronchitis).
