Interest potencjalnš rols of compounds of vanadium in human therapy stems from interesujšcych and obiecujšcych test results using this element and dotyczšcych primarily its ownership insulin- imitative . Among the most important biological properties appears to be the ability of vanadium derivatives number of parameters to normalize disturbed in diabetes. It involves minimizing the basic pathological disorders such as hyperglycaemia , hyperlipidmia or reduced insulin sensitivity and overall regulation of the metabolism of sugars and lipids and reversing secondary symptoms of the disease. In addition to the observed activity of insulin- like, vanadium Club Provider are examined in terms of use in a broader aspect , as are effective in regulating a variety of cellular processes. Experiments conducted using the vanadium demonstrated its involvement in the regulation of apoptosis , proliferation, and malignant transformation , controlling the concentration of ions in the cell, activation of the immune response. Most of the known effects of vanadium derivatives based on their ability to inhibit the phosphatase and stimulate kinase activity , the key enzyme in maintaining the balance between phosphorylation and dephosphorylation processes in the cell. In connection with this , there is the possibility of wide application of compounds discussed in the regulation of a considerable amount of metabolic pathways .

In addition, Club Provider vanadium , due to the common use in many experiments , stajš a tool to study cellular processes , particularly those in which An essential role of kinases and phosphatases odgrywajš .
