We studied the changes in the bone marrow (BM) cell composition at administration of the compound S-heteryl modified cysteamine (S-HMC) in the experiment with acute in vivo irradiation. After total irradiation at a dose of 7,0 Gy depletion of BM cell pool with a maximum at day 3 to 2,6 ± 0,9 % cells of control level was observed and changing the ratios of early and differentiated elements of granulocytic, lymphoid and erythroid lineages was detected. Intraperitoneal administration of S-HMC (150 mg / kg) in 15 minutes before irradiation resulted in an increase of the total myelokaryocytes number by 2.2 times at day 3 and it led to normalization of this parameter on day 7 relatively to the irradiated control. Recovery of granulocyto-, lympho- and erythropoiesis was in shorter terms and it prevented the hematopoietic BM pool depletion after irradiation. Under in vitro culture conditions it was established a decrease in number of clonogenic mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) in BM at day 3 after irradiation to 29,3 ± 3,6 per femoral bone. It was determined survival of a greater number (2.7 times) of the clonogenic BM MSCs when S-HMC was administrated. Thus, the results indicate the manifest myeloprotective effect of the S-HMC compound.
