The decrease of brain flow due to lower body negative pressure (LBNP) was used to study the role of cerebral glucopenia in the activation of anterior pituitary function in 10 young healthy men. During LBNP with a maximum negative pressure of--50 mm Hg the changes in heart rate, blood pressure cerebral blood flow (with the aid of rheoencephalography) and(More)
Cortisol, insulin, somatotropin, thyreotropin, thyroxine, triiodothyronine, testosterone, aldosterone, c-AMP, c-GMP, prostaglandins (PGF1-x, PGF2-x, PGA + E), and renin concentrations in serum or plasma of the venous blood of the third international crew of the scientific orbital complex of "Soyuz 29 - Salyut 6 - Soyuz 31" were determined following the(More)
A detailed biochemical analysis of the venous blood and daily urine samples of the crewmembers of the Salyut-4 second expedition after their 63-day space flight showed metabolic changes as compared with the preflight level. The changes were more marked immediately postflight. On the 7th postflight day most parameters studied tended to return to the(More)
The concentration of ACTH, insulin, glucagon, glucose, epinephrine, norepinephrine, thyrotrophic hormone, thyroxine, and triiodothyronine was measured in plasma of the rats flown for 18.5 days on Cosmos-1129. As a result of the flight, the concentration of insulin, thyrotrophic hormone, and triiodothyronine increased and that of thyroxine decreased. It is(More)
The influence of vitamin D and ultraviolet irradiation (UVI), used for prevention of vitamin D deficiency, on the state of phosphoric-calcium metabolism was studied in experiments on rats. It has been shown that daily injections of 1-5 IU of vitamin D, and UVI in biodoses from 1/8 to 1/4 promote the maintainance of the normal level of phosphoric-calcium(More)
The levels of several hormones (ACTH, GH, TSH, FSH, LH, parathyroid hormone--PTH, insulin, thyroxine--T4, triiodothyronine--T3, cortisol, testosterone, aldosterone, renin), catecholamines (epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamin), prostaglandins (F1 alpha, F2 alpha, A + E), electrolytes (Na, K, Ca, Mg), cAMP and glucose in blood were measured before and(More)
