The paper describes the results of a pilot study aimed at the investigation of the influence of catholyte (electrolyzed alkaline water) on the development of tumors. In the experiments solid Graffi tumor was transplanted subcutaneously in the back of the experimental group of Golden Syrian hamsters. Tumor appearance and growth were registered every day. Blood parameters were measured on the 10th and 25th day after transplantation and blood smears were prepared. Hamsters treated with catholyte developed tumor with some delay compared to untreated (drinking tap water) ones. Also, the tumor growth was slow and the survival rate was increased. The analysis of blood parameters and cell morphology has shown significant differences in the value of some hematometric parameters and morphological changes of some blood cells. The obtained results suggest about the beneficial influence of catholyte and the possible use of it as a supporting non-invasive therapy of cancer diseases.
