Abstract: 

Purpose Entirely introduction of Radioprotection in soldiers that confront with nuclear weapons and accidents to persons that involved with military medicine and health.
Radioprotection is done at physical and chemical method or combination. of both. Physical radio prtection of alive tissue be done with shielding or dose fractionation that isn't feasible in radiation accidents specially in fighting soldiers. Chemical Radioprotection be done by compound (chemical compound) with several mechanisms that free radical scavenging is most important mechanism. Free radicals are unstable agents that are formed by radiation exposure of cells. Antioxidants and aminothiols protect tissues with this mechanism, principally. Biochemical shock and hypoxia induction and hydrogen atom donation are other radio protective mechanisms of radio protectors such as immunomodulators.
According to a lot of studies about radio protective drugs, the numbers of newest and most complete sources such as books and papers were used to introduce of well-known radio protectors mechanisms and applications. Also future perspectives and nessecities of military Radioprotection have been discussed.
With attention to studies, application of single drug alone to Radioprotection of fighting persons is impossible, but application of two or more drugs may can decrease side effects of even fatal irradiation in war scene. Nessecity of clinical trials for determine of suitable radio protective regimen in lighting soldiers. necessitates that more numbers of medical specialists and radiobiologists and pharmacologists research about Radioprotection.
