The aim of this study was to emphasize the influence of the deuterium-depleted water in the chromium (K2Cr2O7) single dose intoxication. The haematocrit and the leukocyte formula were determined, following the chrome intoxication in rats divided into 8 batches comprising 6 individuals each. The blood samples were collected directly from the heart (intracardiac punction) under narcosis. The data were processed statistically by means of the Kruskal- Wallis and Mann-Whitney tests, MINITAB 15 and SPSS17 Software. The haematocrit was improved and the nonspecific defence realised by the neutrophils was stimulated constantly after the deuterium depleted water administration.
