In eight Russian members of the ISS crews 1 to 5 enzymes and some other metabolites were analyzed in blood in the pre- launch period, on the landing day, and on days 6-8 and 14-19 of recovery. Deviations in the biochemical parameters were typically within the physiological norm without clinical implications. Biochemical deviations on the landing day seemed to relate to metabolic shifts due to long-term microgravity and, on the other hand, were a reaction to acute gravitational stress on return… CONTINUE READING
