Protein Engineering
Defining the Next Generation of Biotherapeutics
December 6-8, 2005 - San Diego Convention Center - San Diego, CA

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
