SCIENTIFIC EQUIPMENT INVOLVED:
- Luch-2 equipment accommodating multipurpose crystallization
- Thermal insulating container Biokont-T
for transportation of the Luch-2 equipment
- Temperature-stable container "AQUA 01"
Creation of new vaccines against dangerous virous
diseases, development of the national vaccine against
Development tests of the crystallization procedure
and production of the crystals of protein-candidate
for vaccine against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1)
under microgravity conditions.
The crystals grown under space flight conditions
in multipurpose crystallization cassettes returned
to Earth for a subsequent X-ray crystal analysis.
Creation of a new generation of vaccines against
virous infections based upon synthetic proteins with
a predetermined antigenicity and immunogenicity.
