Abstract In experiments on white mice it was shown that the action of protective substances may be influenced by the iunctional state of the protected body. Mice acclimatized to hypoxia were more resistant to irradiation than the non- acclimatized ones. Cysteamine and cystamine introduced to acclimatized animals prior to irradiation enhanced the protective effect. This increase of the protective effect was not more than the summation of the action of both factors. The protective action of cystamine and cysteamine apparently is not connected with the utilization of protective mechanisms of the body. (auth)
