Human Life Research on ISS Russian Segment
Evaluation of the effect of sympathoadrenal system on mechanisms of adaptation to short-term space flight.
Taking blood samples for:
- a study of biochemical regulation of body homeostasis
during adaptation to weightless environment;
- a study of the role of hormonal mechanisms in
the variations in the water-salt, lipid, and protein
- selection of informative biochemical indicators
to evaluate cosmonaut's health.
The received information on the metabolism state makes possible assessment of the cosmonauts' physical state throughout long-duration space flights and will be used as the basis for development and improvement of diagnostic and prophylaxis tools.
