Being in space accelerates aging of the immune system

In recent studies scientists have established long-term presence in space depresses the immune system and Solarium her. Scientists put the mice in conditions of reduced gravity and see what happens with cellular and humoral immunity in these conditions. Weightlessness violated the normal development of B-lymphocytes in the bone marrow. Such changes are characteristic for the elderly living organisms with weak immune systems.

The state of immunity in young mice under conditions of reduced gravity was the same as in aged mice. Note that in the experiment, the scientists have tried to recreate the natural conditions for the animals, so that no external factors did not affect the results of the study.

The study is of great value in studying the relationship between the presence of man in space and processes for the synthesis of B-lymphocytes. Also plan to study the effects of living in space on the recovery of bone.
