In this study, eight commercially available, chemically defined Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell culture media from different vendors were evaluated in batch culture using an IgG-producing CHO DG44 cell line as a model. Medium adaptation revealed that the occurrence of even small aggregates might be a good indicator of cell growth performance in subsequent(More)
Since the first use of Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells for recombinant protein expression, production processes have steadily improved through numerous advances. In this review, we have highlighted several key milestones that have contributed to the success of CHO cells from the beginning of their use for monoclonal antibody (mAb) expression until today.(More)
Immunoglobulin A (IgA) is the most abundant antibody class in the human body and has a unique role in mediating immunity. The ever-increasing knowledge about the potential of IgAs has renewed interest in this antibody class for therapeutic use against a variety of infectious and malignant diseases, and as a preventive agent for mucosal pathogens. Despite(More)
The regulation of major histocompatibility complex class II gene expression is directly involved in the control of normal and abnormal immune responses. In humans, HLA-DR, -DQ, and -DP class II heterodimers are encoded by a family of alpha- and beta-chain genes clustered in the major histocompatibility complex. Their expression is developmentally controlled(More)
BACKGROUND A new transdermal delivery system for fentanyl is available in two strengths: 70-80 and 90-100 micrograms.kg-1.h-1 (40- and 60-cm2 patches, respectively). Their short onset and 24-h drug delivery make them attractive for postoperative pain control. METHODS Both doses of the new transdermal fentanyl patches were evaluated for the relief of(More)
Immunoglobulins of isotype A (IgA) mediate a key role in mucosal immunity and are promising new immunotherapeutic candidates, but difficulties in obtaining enough material often hamper their in vivo exploration. We established recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells which stably expressed two IgA1 antibodies under serum-free conditions. The two cell(More)
Immunoglobulin A (IgA) mediates a key role in mucosal immunity and is a promising novel immunotherapeutic candidate. However, difficulties in obtaining enough material often hamper in vivo explorations. We have previously generated recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell lines which expressed two different HIV-1 antibodies, 3D6 and 4B3, as IgA1 [1].(More)
The efficient production of recombinant proteins such as antibodies typically involves the screening of an extravagant number of clones in order to finally select a stable and high-producing cell line. Thereby, the underlying principles of a powerful protein machinery, but also potential expression limitations, often remain poorly understood. To shed more(More)
Novel, exciting intervention strategies to prevent infection with HIV have been tested in the past year, and the field is rapidly evolving. EUROPRISE is a network of excellence sponsored by the European Commission and concerned with a wide range of activities including integrated developmental research on HIV vaccines and microbicides from discovery to(More)
Over the years, Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells have emerged as the major host for expressing biotherapeutic proteins. Traditional methods to generate high-producer cell lines rely on random integration(s) of the gene of interest but have thereby left the identification of bottlenecks as a challenging task. For comparison of different producer cell lines(More)
