C57BL/6 mice were randomly divided into two groups: a control group and a hindlimb suspension group. After four weeks of hindlimb suspension, scientists found that this simulated microgravity condition increased the percentage of monocytes and macrophages and decreased the percentage of B lymphocytes and mature red cells in bone marrow.
