Deriving new data on the space flight factors impact on the human blood system to extend diagnostic and prognostic capabilities of detecting mechanisms of arising shifts in hematologic indices ("space anemia", lymphocytosis).
Information PendingEarth Applications
Samples of venous blood in KV-03 container; Eritrotsit' kit with fingertip blood samples; Data on hemoglobin content transmitted via radio links; The logbook sheets with crew members' records.Operational Protocols
Collecting samples of venous and capillary blood with the aim: to study erythrocyte forms; to investigate metabolism of erythrocytes, cell membrane conditions, indices of ferrum metabolism and erythropoetin content in blood.
The findings will allow to detect mechanisms of the blood system adaptation to space flight factors, to extend the system of diagnostic and prognostic criteria for assessment of human physical state under extreme effects, as well as they can be used to develop prophylactic and pharmacologic preparations to treat disturbances in the blood system in these conditions.
