An attempt was made to construct an adequate model of interrelation of radioprotective properties of biologically active chemical compounds with their electronic and information factors. Biological activity (radiation protective effects) of chemical compounds has been analyzed in relation to their electronic sign and the information function. Statistical comparison of qualitative indices has revealed that electronic and information signs the most informative characteristics of the molecules responsible for radiation protective action. Correlation equations are given for electronic and information dependent change in the antiradiation properties of the molecule. Quantitative estimates were made associating the protective efficiency of the chemical compounds under study with variations in the electronic parameters and dose of chemicals.


Keywords: Bioactivity, Statistics, Molecular Structure, Electronic Sign, Information Function, Radioprotector, Statistical Criterion, Contingency, Correlation.
