The mathematical, formal-kinetic description of the diffusion nature of observed dimensional shifts in erythrocytes (the swelling and shrinkage) at early post-radiation period is proposed, and the quasi-chemical model of the diffusion diode is constructed for the transfer processes of micro-particles (including the water molecules) through biological membranes.
