The book contains data about the functions and the metabolism of mineralized tissues, and the results of investigations of bone tissue and calcium metabolism during manned space missions and ground-based simulations. Consideration is given to the bone strength characteristics under experimental hypo- and hypergravity. The role of hormonal and physical/chemical factors in the mechanisms of iron control alterations in man during space missions of various lengths is analyzed. Evaluated is the… CONTINUE READING
