Fundamental information about each medication in the ISS medical kit will be collected into a single database for use by Pharmacology Discipline researchers. Information will be collected from terrestrial sources, like the medical literature, and FDA and USP drug monographs. Additional, manufacturers of the medications in the ISS medication kits will be asked to share unpublished information on the useful lifespans of their products and their degradation products. Deliverables: This information will permit Pharmacology Discipline researchers to quickly search for any drug-related information requested by Space Medicine or other Disciplines, as well to enable predictions of likely side effects, or polypharmacy issues, or other potential barriers to effective treatment. It may also reduce the need for redundant medication stability studies.
