Short Title: CM Validation II
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Planned-Funded - Task expected to be within budget
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Solicited
Aims:

Studies to validate identified medical countermeasures that address multiple tumor types and multiple risk areas (i.e., cancer, late neurodegeneration, cardiovascular disease) with the following aims:

 

Specific Aims:

  • Aim 1 (Cross Risk): Validate efficacy of candidate countermeasure agents in additional model systems in compliance with FDA animal rules.

  • Aim 2 (Cross Risk): Validate efficacy of candidate countermeasure agents in space relevant environment.

  • Aim 3 (Cross Risk):  Determine minimum dosing (mg/day) requirements for optimum effectiveness.

  • Aim 4 (Cross Risk):  Evaluate any potential antagonistic effects across space radiation risk area endpoints including multiple tumor types

  • Aim 5 (Cross Risk): Evaluate biomarker approaches to assess countermeasure efficacy for surveillance, treatment, and outcome prediction.

RiskRisk of Adverse Cognitive or Behavioral Conditions and Psychiatric Disorders
GapBMed-102: Given exposures to spaceflight hazards (space radiation, isolation), how do we identify individual susceptibility, monitor molecular/biomarkers and acceptable thresholds, and validate behavioral health and CNS/neurological/neuropsychological performance measures and domains of relevance to exploration class missions?
GapBMed-103: What are the validated, efficacious treatments (individual or Team-based) and/or countermeasures to prevent adverse behavioral conditions, CNS/neurological, and/or psychiatric disorders caused by either single and/or integrated exposures to spaceflight hazards during exploration class missions?
GapBMed-104: Given the potentially negative spaceflight associated CNS changes and behavioral experiences of stressors during long-duration missions (e.g., isolation, confinement, reduced sensory stimulation, altered gravity, space radiation), what are validated modifications to habitat/vehicle to mitigate stressors impacting on CNS / cognition / behavioral health?
GapBMed-105: Given the potentially negative spaceflight associated CNS/cognitive changes and behavioral experiences of stressors during long-duration missions (e.g., isolation, confinement, reduced sensory stimulation, altered gravity, space radiation), what are validated medical or dietary countermeasures to mitigate stressors impacting on CNS / cognition / behavioral health?
