Minnesota partnership advances potential MS therapy
Date:4/17/2008

tic production of the therapeutic antibody was developed in the laboratory of Larry Pease, Ph.D., chair of immunology at Mayo. Early stage process development was also performed in collaboration with Acorda Therapeutics. The Partnership facility subsequently developed production of the antibody into a validated process that can be used to produce antibody for patient studies. John Wagner, M.D., at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Pease were the principal investigators on the Minnesota Partnership grant. The grant established the protein production facility with the mission of providing good manufacturing (GMP) technical support to investigators at the University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic to move laboratory advancements into clinical trials. The developmental work on this antibody at the protein production facility was funded by philanthropic gifts from the Eugene Applebaum Family Foundation, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, and anonymous benefactors.

The Minnesota Partnership was instrumental in providing the infrastructure to develop this monoclonal antibody to this point, says Dr. Pease. This antibody would not be headed into clinical studies or toward commercialization otherwise.

This is exactly what the Partnership is intended to do, says program director Eric Wieben, Ph.D. That is to promote interactions between the two leading medical research institutions in Minnesota and to accelerate medical discoveries that can be commercialized for the benefit of patients while improving our states economy.
