Patent
Bayer Innovation Gmbh, Icon Genetics GmbH and CureVac GmbH | Date: 2013-01-30

The present invention is directed to a pharmaceutical composition including (eg for use as an adjuvant) a polymeric carrier cargo complex, comprising as a carrier a polymeric carrier formed by disulfide-crosslinked cationic components and as a cargo at least one nucleic acid (molecule) and at least one antigen associated with a tumour or cancer disease selected from; an idiotype immunoglobulin (e.g. an idiotype antibody or an idiotype B cell receptor); or at least one idiotype T cell receptor, or in each case a fragment, variant and/or derivative thereof. The inventive pharmaceutical composition allows for efficient induction of an adaptive immune response directed against the idiotype immunoglobulin or T cell receptor, particularly of a Th1-shiftet immune response. The present invention furthermore provides kits or kits of parts comprising the components of the inventive pharmaceutical composition, as well as the use of the inventive pharmaceutical composition or the inventive kit as a vaccine, particularly in the therapy of a tumour or cancer disease such as lymphoma, particularly B cell or T cell lymphoma.

Disclosed herein are GNGN and G1/G2 antibodies that recognize and bind various FcRs and C1q. Also disclosed herein are glycan-optiminzed antibodies, predominantly of the GNGN or G1/G2 glycoform, with enhanced Fc receptor binding achieved through CHO, Nicotiana benthamiana and yeast manufacturing systems. Nucleic acids encoding these antibodies, as well as expression vectors and host cells including these nucleic acids are also disclosed herein. Methods and pharmaceutical compositions including the monoclonal antibodies are provided herein for the prevention and/or therapeutic treatment of viral infections, cancers and inflammatory diseases.


Patent
Icon Genetics GmbH | Date: 2012-03-08

A set of at least two different protein conjugate preparations, each protein conjugate preparation comprising histidine as a buffering agent and a protein conjugate comprising one or more immunoglobulin moieties conjugated to a carrier protein; wherein the immunoglobulin moieties of each element of said set of protein conjugate preparation have identical complementarity determining regions (CDRs); and wherein different protein conjugate preparations differ in that the immunoglobulin moieties of the protein conjugates have different CDRs.

The invention provides methods for increasing the levels of bi-antennary mono- and fully galactosylated N-glycans, and for decreasing the levels of hybrid-type galactosylated N-glycans on glycoproteins produced in plants or plant cells. In addition, the invention provides methods for the production of heterologous glycoproteins with increased levels of bi-antennary mono- and fully galactosylated N-glycans, or decreased levels of hybrid-type galactosylated N-glycans in plants or plant cells.

Patent
Icon Genetics GmbH | Date: 2016-01-05

A process of expressing a sequence of interest in a plant, plant part, or plant cell culture, comprising: (a) providing a plant, plant part, or plant cell culture containing in cell nuclei a heterologous DNA having a sequence encoding an RNA replicon operably linked or linkable to a transcription promoter, wherein said sequence encoding an RNA replicon contains (i) sequences for replicon function of said RNA replicon, said sequences being derived from a sequence of a plant RNA virus, (ii) a sequence of interest, whereby said sequences for replicon function exhibit at selected localities of said sequences of said plant RNA virus function-conservative differences from said sequence of said plant RNA virus, said differences causing an increased frequency of replicon formation compared to an RNA replicon not exhibiting said differences; and (b) causing expression of said sequence of interest.


Patent
Icon Genetics GmbH | Date: 2014-11-24

Process of producing in a plant, in plant tissue, or in plant cells a hetero-oligomeric protein comprising at least a first and a second protein subunit, said process comprising expressing in plant cells at least said first and said second protein subunit by


Patent
Icon Genetics GmbH | Date: 2014-09-17

Protein conjugate comprising a protein antigen and an immunogenic carrier covalently bonded to said protein antigen, wherein said protein antigen(i) has a sequence segment of 300 or more contiguous amino acids of the amino acid sequence of SEQ ID NO: 1; or(ii) has a variant sequence segment of 300 or more amino acid residues, wherein the amino acid sequence of said variant sequence segment has at least 85% sequence identity to a sequence portion from SEQ ID: 1; or(iii) has a variant sequence segment of 300 or more amino acid residues and has from 1 to 10 substitutions, deletions or additions in said variant sequence segment compared to a sequence segment of 300 or more amino acid residues of the amino acid sequence of SEQ ID NO: 1 or 2.


A process of producing a recombinant glycoprotein in a plant, in cells of a plant, or in plant cells, comprising expressing in said plant, in cells of said plant or in said plant cells a nucleic acid sequence encoding a polypeptide, said polypeptide having an N-glycosylation site of consensus sequence Asn-X-Ser or Asn-X-Thr, X being any standard amino acid residue, wherein, if the Asn residue of said N-glycosylation site is assigned amino acid sequence position 0,


Patent
