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.
Chinese hamster ovary cells were used for production of recombinant UL128 protein and the target protein was obtained through His-Bind Kit (Novagen, Germany).
The Seattle-based Gates Foundation said Friday its $150,000 grant would look at the possibility of using Chinese hamster ovary cells, similar to how many other complex biotechnology drugs are made, Callahan said.
