InVivo and CEVEC pharmaceuticals sign license agreement regarding the use of human CAP-T Technology for production of recombinant proteins
Date:10/3/2009

Cologne, Germany, October 01, 2009 / b3c newswire / - CEVEC Pharmaceuticals, the developer of a novel human expression system derived from amniocytes and the contract manufacturer InVivo BioTech Services GmbH announced today the signing of a strategic license agreement. This license enables InVivo to offer its customers the production of their diagnostic ad preclinical grade material very fast and in highest quality, including authentic human glycosylation patterns, using the novel and proprietary CAP-TTM transient expression system.

CAP-TTM Technology is based on CAP cells, the stable cell line from CEVEC. The non-tumor origin cells have high expression rates of human proteins and grow in serum-free suspension culture and post-translational modifications are human-like. Process times are reduced by means of large-scale transient transfection.

After launching our new transient cell in the US market we are delighted to have now our first customers in Europe not only using our stable expression system but also working with our new transiently expressing human cell line. With expression rates outperforming any other human system on the market, e.g. HEK 293 freestyle and others, while offering highest quality human like proteins, we offer our customers a unique state of the art cell line, Wolfgang Kintzel, CCO of CEVEC Pharmaceuticals GmbH states.

Rainer Lichtenberger, CEO of CEVEC, adds. Because posttranslational modifications play a significant role for the bioactivity of recombinant proteins it is of crucial importance to produce proteins with human-like glycosylation and sialylation. With our proprietary human cell lines, CAP for permanent producer cells for proteins and the novel CAP-T system, only CEVEC is able to offer a unique range of versatile human cell expression systems to our customers, from early discovery to protein manufacture. This license agreement contributes significantly to CEVECs goal becoming the leading cell line supplier for protein production with human cell expression systems.


About CEVEC Pharmaceuticals GmbH - www.cevec-pharmaceuticals.com
CEVEC Pharmaceuticals GmbH, operational since 2004 was founded by a group of internationally renowned scientists and clinicians from the University of Cologne, Germany. Based on their experience and theirlongstanding collaborative work they had experienced a lack of innovative expression systems formore efficient production of biologics such as recombinant proteins or gene therapy vectors. CEVECs novel proprietary human CAP and CAP-T expression systems are ideal for manufacturing complex biopharmaceutical molecules with human glycosylation patterns.
