Patent
Genzyme | Date: 2017-02-15

The current disclosure provides binding polypeptides (e.g., antibodies), and targeting moiety conjugates thereof, comprising a site-specifically engineered glycan linkage within native or engineered glycans of the binding polypetpide. The current disclosure also provides nucleic acids encoding the antigen-binding polypeptides, recombinant expression vectors and host cells for making such antigen-binding polypeptides. Methods of using the antigen-binding polypeptides disclosed herein to treat disease are also provided.


Patent
Genzyme | Date: 2017-04-12

Provided herein are seed train processes and methods of producing a recombinant protein that include the use of these seed train processes.


Provided herein are methods for determining the efficacy of treatment for polycystic kidney disease (PKD) in a patient, diagnosing PKD in a patient, staging PKD in a patient, and monitoring PKD in a patient. These methods include determining a single or multiple levels of one or more markers selected from the group of Proliferating Cell Nuclear Antigen (PCNA), cyclin D1, cyclin D3, MAPKERK kinase 1 (MEK), ribosomal protein S6 (S6), phosphorylated ribosomal protein S6 (pS6), extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK), phosphorylated extracellular signal-regulated kinase (pERK), protein kinase B (Akt), phosphorylated protein kinase B (pAkt), caspase-2, total S6, and retinoblastoma binding protein (RBBP). Also provided are kits that include at least three antibodies that specifically bind to one or more of these markers.


The present disclosure relates to antisense oligonucleotides (AONs) for modulating the expression of glycogen synthase. AONs of the present disclosure may be useful in treating diseases associated with the modulation of the expression of the enzyme glycogen synthase, such as Pompe disease. Also provided by the present disclosure are compositions comprising AONs, as well as methods of down regulating mRNA coding for glycogen synthase, methods for reducing glycogen synthase in skeletal and cardiac muscle, and methods for treating Pompe disease.

Provided herein are methods of culturing a mammalian cell and various methods that utilize these culturing methods. Also provided are multi-well cell culture plates, e.g., for use in perfusion culturing methods.


Tropomyosin-related kinase inhibitors (Trk inhibitors) are small molecule compounds useful in the treatment of disease. Trk inhibitors can be used as pharmaceutical agents and in pharmaceutical compositions. Trk inhibitors are useful in the treatment of inflammatory diseases, autoimmune disease, defects of bone metabolism and/or cancer, and are particularly useful in the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA), pain, and pain associated with OA. Trk inhibitors are also useful for inhibiting tropomyosin-related kinase A (TrkA), tropomyosin-receptor kinase B (TrkB), tropomyosin-receptor kinase C (TrkC), and/or c-FMS (the cellular receptor for colony stimulating factor-1 (CSF-1)).


The present disclosure relates to recombinant viral vectors, to pharmaceutical compositions comprising such recombinant vectors, and to methods for prevention and treatment of osteoarthritis in mammals. In particular, this disclosure provides adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors capable of expressing, in a host, osteoprotective/chondroprotective bioactive proteins, including hyaluronan synthase 2 (HAS2) and lubricin (PRG4). Methods of production of these AAV are provided, as are methods of treatment of osteoarthritis in mammalian joints, by the long-term gene expression of osteoprotective/chondroprotective proteins, including HAS2 and PRG4, in both synovial and chondrocyte cells.


Patent
Genzyme | Date: 2017-01-31

The present invention provides a tablet core which comprises at least about 95% by weight of an aliphatic amine polymer. The invention also provides a method of producing a tablet core comprising at least about 95% by weight of an aliphatic amine polymer resin The method comprises the step of compressing the aliphatic amine polymer to form the tablet core. The tablet core can further include one or more excipients. In this embodiment, the method of producing the tablet core comprises the steps of: (1) hydrating the aliphatic amine polymer to the desired moisture level; (2) blending the aliphatic amine polymer with the excipients in amounts such that the polymer comprises at least about 95% by weight of the resulting blend; and (3) compressing the blend to form the tablet core. The present invention further relates to a coated tablet comprising an aliphatic amine polymer core wherein the coating is a water based coating.
