It was also decided that the mutant cell lines and the original Chinese Hamster Ovary cell line were possibly not apoptotic, that is, the cells do not participate in programmed cell death.
Mark Azam, VP of R & D and Operations of HumanZyme added, "Life science to date has been using proteins derived from bacteria and Chinese hamster ovary cells. There is a limit to how much we can understand humans using nonhuman tools," said Li.
Also, treating the Chinese hamster ovary cells with NAC can effectively inhibit cell apoptosis induced by radiation [19].

A report in Science Translational Medicine suggests that the antibody cocktail used in Ebola virus-infected patients can be further simplified to only two antibodies and that these antibodies can be produced in engineered Chinese hamster ovary cells. Such a cocktail protected nonhuman primates against the virus responsible for the 2014-2015 outbreak up to 3 days after exposure, and combining these antibodies with those specific for other strains may lead to a broad Ebola virus therapy.
