Astrogenetix Narrows in on MRSA Virulence Onboard Discovery
Date:4/6/2010

is organism has increased drastically, exceeding the death rate for HIV. In the United States, MRSA is responsible for 100,000 cases of severe infections and more than 19,000 deaths annually.
“We’ve collected extraordinary data over the last several missions to the International Space Station, and we expect more critical data to come back with the Shuttle’s return,” added Dr. Jeanne Becker, Chief Science Officer for Astrogenetix. “We’re getting much closer to identifying a potential target for vaccine development by knocking out specific genes associated with virulence.”

Initial NLP-V studies conducted by Astrogenetix focused on developing a potential vaccine for Salmonella bacteria. Currently there is no vaccine for Salmonella, which represents a significant problem for food contamination in the U.S. and for American soldiers in foreign countries, in addition to causing illness and death in developing nations. Work conducted during the first three NLP-V spaceflight payloads resulted in the successful identification of key genes in Salmonella that could be manipulated to create a potential vaccine for this organism. The Company is developing an investigational new drug submission package for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for subsequent initiation of trials for the Salmonella vaccine.
