The reference book contains data on more than 1000 preparations described up to 1963. Data published in Protivoluchevyye sredstva, Drugs for Radiation Protection, pub. 1961, are not repeated. Bibliographical data are compiled at the end of the book references are listed alphabetically and numbered. The efficiency of the protection sensibilization is expressed by the factor of dose variation FID which indicates the necessary variation of the radiation dose administered to the subject to be protected in order to achieve the same effect as on irradiation without protection. The structural formulas are given in the form represented by the authors of the references. Structural formulas and synonyma of preparations described in the reference book of 1961 are not given. Because of the great influence of the oxygen effect on the action of drugs for radiation protection, the composition of the gaseous medium during the irradiation is given whenever possible. Absence of such data means that the irradiation was carried out in air. Apart from new preparations, the most important data published before 1961 are mentioned if they were not described previously for some reason.
