In experiments on irradiated (10 Gy) mice a study was made of the morphological changes in the small intestine mucosa and in its functional status estimated by absorption of stain uranine. It was shown that the preventive administration of cystamine and S-(omega)-aminopropyl-beta-aminoethylthiophosphoric acid to the exposed mice increased the proliferation processes in the crypt and the cell movement per villus providing a favourable effect of the radioprotective agents on the absorption function.
