Biotechnology and Protein Production
A recent review of the Biotechnology Industry listed 48 small companies (Genentech being the largest of these) and 9 Pharmaceutical majors in this field. The areas being investigated ranged from Immune Modifiers and anti-Cancer agents through Blood Proteins and Hormones to Vaccines and Anti-infectives. Indeed, a number of these products, namely human insulin, human growth hormone and interferon alpha are now being marketed while others such as tissue plasminogen activator and hepatitis B vaccine are in advanced trials.
