Applications of cell culture for the improvement of human health

  • Barry C. Buckland


Current applications of Cell Culture Engineering which have a major beneficial impact for the improvement of human health range from a great variety of vaccines (examples include measles, mumps, rubella, polio, and Hepatitis A) made using this technology to a whole new range of therapeutic proteins dependent for their expression on animal cell culture hosts (examples include EPO, TPA and γ-interferon). Novel applications “in the pipeline” include cell therapy products and gene therapy products.
