Results of ground-based and microgravity simulation experiments, observations during space flight, and post-flight observations for six body systems are reviewed: cardiovascular, respiratory, interstitial space and fluid regulation, endocrine, immune, and muscular.

Data are drawn from 5 space flight missions: Skylab, Spacelab 1 on STS-9, Spacelab D1 on STS-61A, SLS-1 on STS-40 and Spacelab D2 on STS-55.
