[Examination of the morphofunctional properties of red blood cells of humans in 5-day dry immersioin].

[Article in Russian]


Blood of six normal male volunteers sampled before, immediately after and in 7 days since 5-d dry immersion was analyzed for morphological parameters, erythrocyte metabolism, lipids and phospholipids levels. The experimental exposure was shown to increase the erythrocyte count. Also, upward trends were displayed by hemoglobin and PCV on the first day after the experiment; a significant decrease in adenosine triphosphate and low level of reduced glutathione could be an outcome of enhanced oxidation in cell due to, maybe, LPO activation. There was a downward trend in the phospholipids fraction of erythrocyte membrane against steady levels of cholesterol and its ethers which might be linked with the reliable growth of the fraction of nonesterified fatty acids on day 1 and triglycerides on days 1 and 7 post the experiment.
