The problem of genetic safety becomes more and more topical with the on-going intensive environmental pollution and more frequent oncological diseases. The range of chemical substances and physical factors that influence man and other organisms becomes wider with each year. There is a danger for ecological safety of the most part of human population as a result of accidents that increase radiational background over vast territories. Safe radioprotectors non-selectively heightening human immunity are necessary in the case.

A complex of modern genetic methods allowing to estimate mutageneity (genotoxicity) of different chemical compounds and physical factors; the method of somatic mosaics on wing cells of Drosophila melanogaster has been adapted for the estimate of radioprotective capabilities of chemical compounds.
