Medicines from plants

.

But growing the plants only solved a part of the problem. Because, how does one get as much protein as possible from the leaves that are harvested? The team developed the equipment that is suitable for that itself, because current processes, coming from food technology, for example, work on an entirely different scale. The complete pulping process now takes place in a closed loop.

Biopharmaceuticals for clinical studies

Dr. Jrgen Drossard, Dr. Thomas Rademacher and Dr. Stefan Schillberg from the IME, in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Wiltrud Treffenfeldt from Dow AgroSciences and Dr. ctive substances in transgenic plants and plant suspension cells economically and safely. They are being honored with the Prize for Human-Centered Technology for their achievements.

We wanted to show that it can be done, that biopharmaceuticals can be produced that are suitable for clinical studies, says Dr. Stefan Schillberg of the IME. And this is exactly where the team is at with its development. The proteins that are produced in this manner are currently being tested with the objective that they be used in clinical studies. For example, the antibodies could be used to manufacture a vaginal gel with which women could protect themselves from an HIV infection. In a new project, the researchers are currently working on producing a malaria vaccine in plants.
