Part Descriptions

LP18172-4   Interferon.beta
Beta interferon is a recombinant protein which is chemically identical to or similar to endogenous interferon beta with antiviral and anti-tumor activities. Endogenous interferons beta are cytokines produced by nucleated cells (predominantly natural killer cells) upon exposure to live or inactivated virus, double-stranded RNA or bacterial products. These agents bind to specific cell-surface receptors, resulting in the transcription and translation of genes with an interferon-specific response element. The proteins so produced mediate many complex effects, including antiviral (the most important being inhibition of viral protein synthesis), antiproliferative and immune modulating effects. The recombinant therapeutic forms of interferon beta are interferon beta 1-a and interferon beta 1-b. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP38708-1   Interferon.beta Ab
Highly elevated levels of neutralizing antibodies (NAbs >1:100) to interferon-beta used as therapy in patients with Multiple Sclerosis have been reported to correlate with predictable loss of interferon-beta bioactivity. In patients with elevated NAb levels from >1:20 to <1:100, interferon-beta bioactivity may still be present, but does not necessarily correlate to the exact NAb titer, and continued patient monitoring may be warranted. There is no apparent loss of interferon-beta bioactivity in patients who test positive in the binding antibody assay, but
negative for NAbs; however, continued patient monitoring may also be warranted in this instance as well. Source: Quest Diagnostics Inc., Interferon-beta 1a (IFNB-1a) Antibody
