(Vocus) February 8, 2010 -- Space Shuttle Endeavor lifted off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center this morning, carrying on board the eighth scientific payload for Astrogenetix, a commercial biotech company created to use microgravity to develop the foundation of new medicines.

“Conducting research in microgravity is so unique that we are able to learn things about these microbes that we could not learn on the ground,” said John Porter, Chief Executive Officer of Astrogenetix. “By observing genetic changes within the microbes, we are hoping to identify biomarkers that will lead to a successful vaccine or therapeutic.”

The Company’s payload on Flight STS-130 consists of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) microbes in search of a target for a vaccine or therapeutic. Research will build on information gained during experiments conducted on board previous shuttle missions performed over the past year. On STS-130, Astrogenetix will continue to interrogate specific genes within a group of genes that show promise for identifying a vaccine or therapeutic candidate, to further narrow the scope of virulence determinants.

“The launch of STS-130 allows us to add to our data on potential druggable targets in MRSA, and we appreciate the opportunity to work with NASA to conduct this important work,” added Dr. Jeanne Becker, Chief Science Officer for Astrogenetix.

Astrogenetix has worked closely with NASA in an effort to fully utilize the International Space Station, one of NASA’s primary priorities. The Company’s space-based research has been d
