Short Title: Immune Dysfunction-NEK Sirius-21
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):
1. Investigate the effect of isolation for 8 months at the Russian NEK spaceflight vehiclesimulation on immune dysregulation consisting of cellular function, salivary cytokine profiles, and basic peripheral leukocyte distribution.

2. Investigate the effect of NEK deployment on the reactivation and shedding of latent herpesviruses.

3. Correlate all findings with the Russian assessment of novel innate immunity parameters, to derive a comprehensive assessment of the effect of prolonged isolation on human immunity and associated clinical risks.
