Scheuring RA, Jones JA, Polk JD.Human spaceflight health systems for the Constellation Project.Aviat Space Environ Med. 2007 Dec;78(12):1179-80.Note:
This article reviews the human spaceflight health systems being developed, in support of the Constellation Project, by the medical operations division of NASA Johnson Space Center, in conjunction with the exploration medical capabilities team at JSC. This includes initial flights of the Crew Exploration Vehicle to ISS, and later, lunar missions, a lunar outpost, and Mars missions.

Last paragraph of this letter: "The evidence of spaceflight effects on NAD activity [based on Salyut 6 results] and the responsiveness of NAD activity to lead exposure, combined with the hypothesis that bone resorption during spaceflight will release lead stored in bones into blood circulation, warrants the monitoring of blood lead before, during, and after extended space missions."
