Hormezis a modern orvoslásban

Translated title of the contribution: Hormesis: The importance of small doses in the modern medicine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The hormesis concept contains that high doses of some substances are harmful (toxic or inhibiting), at the same time small doses of these substances are adventageous and stimulating. The pretreatment with small doses helps to neutralize the later harmful or deleterious effects of large doses and this has therapeutical (clinical) importance in case of numerous diseases and treatments. The review use two examples for demonstrating the importance of hormesis: the effect of radiation and the effect to immunity, in addition general, evolutionary aspects are also highlighted. The importance of evolutionary aspects are discussed. It demonstrates the influence of hormesis to the human evolution and calls attention to the expected changes in human diseases (as inevitable consequences of hormesis in our chemically strongly infected world), which are transmitted to the progenies. Hormesis is a therapeutic possibility as well as a challenge for medicine, this means that it is advisable to use it in the therapy and must prepare ourselves to the challenges.
