Protein Engineering Defining the Next Generation of Biotherapeutics December 6-8, 2005 - San Diego Convention Center - San Diego, CA http://www.ibclifesciences.com/ IBC's Protein Engineering conference focuses on new protein pharmaceutical platforms and scientific strategies that need to be designed for efficient activity optimization against any specific target, and also for manufacturing, formulation and delivery. Presentations demonstrate how half-life, formulation, shelf-life, safety and non-immunogenicity requirements must be built into the product platform upfront so that every new product lead will have these properties, minimizing the need for additional testing in humans. Highlights include how: * Avidia uses avimers to create inhibitors to block IL-6 * Compound Therapeutics developed AdNectin as an agonist to VEGFR-2 * Molecular Partners AG developed DARPins for diagnostic and therapeutic applications * Dyax engineered Kunitz domain-based drug candidates that are in clinical and preclinical testing * Genencor constructed fusion proteins between fragments of tumor specific antibodies and -lactamase 2005 Scientific Advisory and Organizing Board James W.
