Risk Statement
Given that no method exists to ensure a supply of effective medications on long duration missions (> 1 year without resupply) and given the hostile space environment, there is the possibility that the ability to treat medical conditions with pharmaceuticals will be significantly reduced resulting in potential acute or chronic health consequences and/or the loss of productivity.
