Neurturin (NTN) is a neurotrophic factor with known potential to protect and restore the function of dopaminergic substantia nigra neurons whose degeneration has been most closely linked to the major motor deficits in Parkinson's disease (PD). CERE-120, an adeno-associated virus serotype 2 (AAV2)-based gene delivery vector encoding human NTN, is being… (More)
OBJECTIVE Parkinson's disease is characterized by profound motor deficits that result mainly as a consequence of degeneration of midbrain dopaminergic neurons. No current therapy slows or halts disease progression. Neurturin (NTN) and glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor have potent neuroprotective and neurorestorative effects on dopaminergic… (More)
Recombinant human PH20 hyaluronidase (rHuPH20) is used to facilitate dispersion of subcutaneously delivered fluids and drugs. This report summarizes rHuPH20 immunogenicity findings from clinical trials where rHuPH20 was co-administered with SC human immunoglobulin, trastuzumab, rituximab, or insulin. Plasma samples were obtained from evaluable subjects… (More)
OBJECTIVE Expression of Spam1/PH20 and its modulation of high/low molecular weight hyaluronan substrate have been proposed to play an important role in murine oligodendrocyte precursor cell (OPC) maturation in vitro and in normal and demyelinated central nervous system (CNS). We reexamined this using highly purified PH20. METHODS Steady-state expression… (More)
