Biotechnology in Eastern Europe

  • Anthony Rimmington
Conference paper

Abstract

The East European countries and the USSR are lagging behind in one of the key technologies of our time — biotechnology. Thus, within the Eastern bloc, there has been no series production of human insulin which has been on the market in the West for six years. And, whereas industrial production of Growth Releasing Factor began in 1983 in France, the Soviet Union and East European countries still appear to be years away from doing anything similar. Nor is there any sign of the development via biotechnology of powerful new drugs such as plasminogen activator (TPA — one of the so-called “clot-busters”), new vaccines such as Merck’s Hepatitis B vaccine or other products such as Human Growth Hormone, Interferon alpha 2a or Interferon alpha 2b which have already reached the market in the developed Western countries.1
