Abstract

In experiments on mice a study was made of different substituents in the 4th position of the indole ring of 5-methoxytryptamines (5-MOT) on toxicity and radioprotective efficiency of the compounds of this class. It was shown that the administration of the amino-group to a mexamine molecule increased the preparation toxicity; the nitro-group somewhat diminished the toxic properties, and the acetylamino group did not change 5-MOT toxicity. A 5-MOT derivative with a nitro group possessed the strongest radioprotective action. The radioprotective efficiency of these compounds persisted for 1-2 h.
