Recovery of spaceflight-induced bone loss: Bone mineral density after long-duration missions as fitted with an exponential function. Bone. 2007 Aug 22; [Epub ahead of print] (PI: T.F. Lang) Note: Mir and ISS results. From abstract: "In sum, averaged losses of bone mineral after long-duration spaceflight ranged between 2% and 9% across all sites with our recovery model predicting a 50% restoration of bone loss for all sites to be within 9 months."
