  • Detection And Quality Control Of Host Proteins

    Host proteins (HCP) form a major part of the process-related impurities in the production of biologics. The amount of residual HCP in a pharmaceutical product is often considered a critical quality attribute (CQA) because of its potential to affect product safety and efficacy.

  • Definition And Structure Of Antibodies

    Antibodies are shaped like the letter 'Y' and their main job is to bind to an invading antigen, but not to kill the antigen - they do not have this function; the binding is to give the antigen a marker to be destroyed. When phagocytes find the marker to destroy, they come forward and swallow the antibody-bound antigen and digest it.

BlueGene Biotech's Research For Cancer

In medicine, it is the most common type of malignant tumor, that is, malignant tumor originating from epithelial tissue. The etiology of cancer can be divided into exogenous and endogenous factors.

Biological Characteristics of Cancer

Cancer has many biological characteristics such as abnormal cell differentiation and proliferation, uncontrolled growth, invasion and metastasis, and others. Its occurrence is a complex process with multi-factor and multi-step, and it can be divided into three processes: carcinogenesis, promotion and evolution. It is closely related to smoking, infection, occupational exposure, environmental pollution, unreasonable diet and genetic factors. The etiology of malignant tumors is not fully understood. 

Current Research for Cancer

At present, the relatively clear factors related to cancer can be divided into exogenous and endogenous. Exogenous factors include living habits, environmental pollution and occupation, natural and biological factors, chronic stimulation and trauma, and iatrogenic factors. Endogenous factors include genetic factors, immune factors and endocrine factors.
