The effects of antiserotonin preparation on the development of the connective tissue in the lungs, reaction of the blood system, and the content of hemopoietic stem cells, committed hemopoietic and stromal precursors in BM, spleen, and peripheral blood were studied on C57Bl/6 mice with experimental toxic lung fibrosis caused by intratracheal administration of bleomycin. It was demonstrated that the antiserotonin drug inhibits the growth of the connective tissue in the lungs and attenuates the course inflammatory process primarily due to inhibition of the granulocytic lineage, which was related to suppression of hemopoietic stem cells. Reduced content of the stromal precursor cells in BM and spleen was noted.
