Abstract
The article presents results of study into the level of physical development, condition of the cardiovascular-, respiratory-, central nervous systems, immunobiologic resistance of the organism, prevalence of morphofunctional deviations from the norm, and morbidity rates among the students of the mining-trade secondary school (aged 15-18). It has been found out that adverse ecological situation in urban centres of the Donetsk Province together with specific character of training for occupation in coal industry have a marked negative effect on the functional status as well as health status of the adolescents. On the basis of the studies made a complex of measures has been designed to maintain and promote the health of students of the mining-trade secondary schools.

Abstract
With the purpose of studying the impact of ecological health hazard conditions on the juvenile organism, a total of 192 pupils of upper grades from schools in Donetsk, Makeyevka, Mariupol (conventionally a "dirty" zone) and 126 schoolchildren from Artemovsk and Krasnyi Liman (conventionally a "clean" zone) were evaluated for the immunological status. Children from the polluted zone demonstrated decreased levels of lysozyme in saliva as well as of glycogen and acid phosphatase in leucocytes, there were also deviations from the norm in the peripheral blood picture. Young residents of Mariupol appeared to have the worst findings.
