Vaccines are derived from a variety of sources including tissue extracts, bacterial cells, virus particles, recombinant mammalian, yeast and insect cell produced proteins and nucleic acids. Typically, vaccines are produced to treat the general population; however, vaccines can be tailored to treat specific individuals. Veterinary vaccines also have important economic significance in the protection of animal stocks. This Application Brief discusses the different adsorptive and exclusion based filtration separation technologies used in vaccine purification. Learn more.
PsiOxus' Brave Agenda To Destroy Cancer Cells By Wayne Koberstein, contributing editor, Life Science Leader
PsiOxus is exploiting novel mechanisms to fight cancer directly, along with its indirect but lethal effects. In mid-July, the company landed funding for Phase I and II trials of ColoAd1, a "systemically available oncolytic vaccine" that selectively enters cancer cells and proliferates inside like a virus, killing the cells — an interesting marriage of targeted and immunotherapeutic strategies.
Chromatographic Analysis And Characterization Of Protein-Based Drugs By Tom Ricci
In the past five years, the commercial drug pipeline has made a dramatic shift away from conventional small-molecule drugs to biologic-based pharmaceuticals. This new class of protein-based pharmaceuticals is believed to be inherently safer than small-molecule drugs and will enable longer innovator exclusivity, because, today, it is not possible to create an identical copy of the drug, taking biogenerics out of the picture.
Spotlight On Separation And Filtration
Davisil® Technical Poster: Natural Product Purification The reliable enrichment, analysis, and purification of low-abundance natural produce constituents from their complex crude extraction mixtures by liquid chromatography remains a key challenge in the pharmaceutical, food, flavors, and natural products fields.

In this webinar, we examine the impact of variability in biopharmaceutical manufacturing. Using real data, we suggest that variability is the single biggest issue facing biopharmaceutical manufacturers today, affecting not only unit operations but the entire supply chain design and management. The presence of significant variability requires systems that can 'sense and respond' in real time, so that issues can be resolved quickly and before they impact product quality.
