ANTI-VIRAL T CELLS - The effect of microgravity on pre-stimulated anti-viral T cells activation: a possible application for up-front bio-banking

Nira Varda-Bloom, Cafri Gal, Zukerman N, Lieberman A, Vax E.

Immune-system dysregulation under microgravity may cause life-threatening diseases especially during long-term space mission. Here, we propose to test the ability to produce an autologous specific T cells bio-bank that will be send to space with astronauts. We intend to send stimulated cells, and test their ability to produce secondary stimulation on space, using same viral peptides. Cells activation will be analyze for their pre and post activation cytokine production and activation molecules. Study will be conduct simultaneously on Earth to compare environmental effect on cells function. If cells will maintain their activation on space, we will be able to produce ready to use autologous cells to treat astronauts upon medical need.

“Above us only sky” Ilan Ramon, RIP, 2003

The Rakia Mission is an example of the extraordinary collaboration between a great number of different entities. It is an expression of the values of peace, innovation, leadership and social responsibility. The combination of dreams this mission represents, and the proof that anything is possible - these are a major part of our vision.
