Short Title: Nutrition SMO
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Supporting Org(s):
Human Health Countermeasures
Funding Status: Active - Task currently funded
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Direct Contract
Aims:

1) include inflight blood and urine collection

2) expand nominal testing to include makers of normative markers of nutritional assessment

3) add an R+30 session to allow evaluation of
 postflight nutrition and implications for rehabilitation


Integration/Unique Aspects:
Nutrition SMO includes measures of factors that influence, mediate or reflect bone mineral metabolism, e.g. vitamins, minerals, oxidative damage markers, markers of iron and calcium metabolism, bone- and calcium-regulating hormones, stress hormones and urinary markers of bone turnover.  These measures increase the understanding of and cellular/biochemical etiology underlying skeletal adaptation in space.
Mappings
RiskRisk Factor of Inadequate Nutrition
GapN3.3: We need to determine changes in nutritional status due to spaceflight.
GapN4: Does mission architecture and/or available countermeasures impact nutritional status of crewmembers during spaceflight?
GapN6: What impact does the spaceflight environment have on oxidative damage?
GapN7.1: We need to identify the most important nutritional factors for musculoskeletal health.
GapN7.2: We need to identify the most important nutritional factors for cardiovascular health.
GapN7.3: We need to identify the most important nutritional factors for ocular health.
GapN7.4: We need to identify the most important nutritional factors for behavior and performance.
GapN13: Can renal stone risk be decreased using nutritional countermeasures?
GapN15: We need to identify the most important nutritional factors for oxidative damage during spaceflight.
GapN7.5: We need to identify the most important nutritional factors for immune health.
