Once identified, these may then be further improved using the company's highly efficient process for fine-tuning of antibodies
and other proteins to increase their activity, called EvoGene(TM) Optimisation.
The objectives of this study were to assess the seroprevalence of antibodies
to CHIKV in a sample of pregnant women and the kinetics of transplacentally transferred antibodies
After a few weeks, a worker collects an injected animal's blood and removes the blood cells to isolate the serum, which is swimming with antibodies
against the venom.
Subsequently, Kirin and Hematech have progressed to developing cows that can efficiently produce human antibodies
Because immunologic tolerance is incomplete, it is not unexpected that IgG antibodies
specific for food proteins are found in normal subjects with no signs or symptoms of food allergy (Barnes 1995; Barnes et al.
She agrees with her colleagues that most antibodies
against HIV are not effective.
VelocImmune is the centerpiece of Regeneron's suite of technologies for the discovery and development of fully human antibodies
," said George D.
Traditional methods of making antibodies
to proteins require that the protein of interest be produced and purified in relatively large quantities prior to injection for antibody production.
Thus, typical HA-specific antibodies
neutralize viral infectivity and fully protect against infection when they are present at sufficient concentration in the lining fluid of the respiratory tract, and typical NA-specific antibodies
inhibit the release of newly formed virus from infected host cells and thus limit the spread and shedding of virus during infection.
That's how monoclonal antibodies
--as well as polyelonal antibodies
, which target multiple surface proteins--can knock out some immune cells to prevent rejection of transplanted tissues.
The system is highly scaleable, allowing the generation of custom libraries consisting of hundreds of antibodies
to the S protein neutralize the virus and have been mapped (11-14).
