AET offers a good protection to the gastro-international tract of whole body X-Irradiated mice exposed to 15OO r by preserving from radiation damages a sufficient number of intestinal crypt cells which allow a good recovery of the small intestine mucosa. In the non-protected mice all measurements show that on day 4 the small intestine mucosa is completely destroyed. In protected mice at the same time all measurements are normal. Only the esterases, although the small intestine mucosa appears historically normal, did not recover completely by day 10.
