||Cellular immunity in cosmonauts during long duration spaceflight on board the orbital MIR station
||May 1994, Vol.65, No.5, p.419-423. 26 ref.
||Delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) was tested in five cosmonauts by intradermal application of seven antigens and a control. In four of the five cosmonauts, reaction scores of DTH-responses below the warning level were noted either during the flight or following landing. Results confirm earlier observations of a decreased lymphocyte function following spaceflights and support the theory of a possibly impaired cell-mediated immunity under stress in association with spaceflight.
