A novel anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) antibody having a strong binding affinity for VEGF and capable of inhibiting in vivo tumor growth and a composition for the treatment of cancer, containing the same. The antibody shows a remarkable binding property to human and mouse VEGF, suppresses the proliferation and permeability of a human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC) and inhibits tumor growth, and thus can be useful as an antibody for the treatment of cancer.


The present invention provides a compound of Formula (I) being capable of modulating the activity of histone lysine demethylase (KDM), pharmaceutical compositions thereof, methods to prepare the said compounds, and the use of such compounds as a medicament. The compound of Formula (I) acts as KDM inhibitor with marked potency, thereby having an outstanding potential for a pharmaceutical intervention of cancer and any other diseases related to KDM dysregulation.

This study describes the development and experimental verification of a modified harvest system to enhance Factor VIII (FVIII) yield in an alternating tangential flow (ATF) perfusion culture. The main innovation of the modified harvest system is the use of check and pinch valves, eliminating the need of a peristaltic pump for harvest. The system was applied to perfusion cultures of Chinese hamster ovary cells, which co-express both recombinant human FVIII (rhFVIII) and von Willebrand factor (vWF). The modified harvest system showed comparable cell growth with the conventional harvest system using a peristaltic pump. The perfusion rate was successfully controlled using the system. In addition, the modified harvest system achieved an approximately 13.6-fold increase in the final concentration yield of FVIII activity and a 1.47-fold increase in the production yield of FVIII activity compared with a peristaltic pump. Enhancement of the yield of FVIII activity resulted from the reduction of FVIII antigen (FVIII:Ag) retention. As a result of transmembrane pressure (TMP) measurement, the reduction of the retained FVIII:Ag was due to the increased TMP, which was caused by the characteristic function of a check valve, compared with a peristaltic harvest system. The modified harvest system developed in this study could be useful to enhance the production yield of other recombinant proteins in ATF perfusion culture. © 2015. Source

In this study, we evaluated three cell retention devices, an alternating tangential flow (ATF) system, a spin-filter, and a Centritech Lab III centrifuge, for the production of recombinant human Factor VIII co-expressed with von Willebrand factor. From the results, it was found that the FVIII activity in bioreactor was significantly higher in the ATF perfusion culture than two other perfusion cultures. Moreover, the FVIII activity yield was unexpectedly low in the ATF perfusion culture. We have, therefore, studied the reasons for this low FVIII activity yield. It was revealed that the inactivation and the surface adsorption of FVIII onto the harvest bag were not the main reasons for the low yield in the ATF perfusion culture. The FVIII activity yield was not increased by the use of a hollow fiber filter with 0.5 μm pore size instead of 0.2 μm pore size. Additionally, the retention of FVIII molecules by the hollow fiber filter was a dominant factor in the low FVIII activity yield in the ATF perfusion culture. We demonstrated that FVIII yield was significantly improved by controlling transmembrane pressure (TMP) across the hollow fiber filter membrane. Taken together, these results suggest that TMP control could be an efficient method for the enhancement of FVIII yield in an ATF perfusion culture. © 2015 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht Source
