abstract

  • Our findings suggest antitumor immunity is inhibited in antiorthostatic suspension. The lack of a difference in mean tumor size in SCID mice in antiorthostatic suspension compared with standard housing controls supports the concept that HU alters host immunity against the S1 509a tumor. Further studies are warrranted to delineate the precise effects of spaceflight on host immunity, carcinogenesis, and tumor progression.
