Therapeutic uses of the scavenging protein cocktail to treat plasma protein imbalances or depletion
TS-053103 — Uncontrolled hemolysis (i.e., destruction of red blood cells) is characterized by the increase of circulating toxic cell-free hemoglobin, heme and iron in the bloodstream. In vivo, the body’s natural supply of plasma scavenger proteins acts to neutralize these toxic species. However, these scavenger proteins such as haptoglobin, hemopexin and transferrin, which detoxify hemoglobin, heme and iron, respectively, are depleted in various clinical conditions such as hemorrhagic shock, burns, surgery, organ transplantation, sepsis and trauma. Dr. Andre Palmer’s lab at The Ohio State University has developed a novel therapeutic protein mixture, which can be used to treat plasma protein imbalances or depletion caused by the adverse events described above. The properties of this protein mixture are beneficial as they lend themselves to an inexpensive manufacturing process and potential improvements in clinical outcomes.
Fluid replacement as part of resuscitation efforts in clinical care is a cornerstone of treatment especially in cases with severe trauma. The regular usage of these fluids in hospitals requires the mixture to be easily transported, easily stored and applicable across a wide variety of patients. To…

Novel selective protein purification via tangential flow filtration
TS-046780 — Dr. Andre Palmer’s lab at The Ohio State University has developed a novel purification method to isolate any target protein from a complex mixture. The process purifies a target protein (TP) from a mixture by exploiting molecular size changes that result from the formation of a protein complex consisting of a TP and its TP binding molecule (TPBM). This is accomplished via Tangential Flow Filtration (TFF). This process allows for simple and scalable purification of any protein, providing a wide range of applicability.
Proteins can be used in various medical and research applications including drug delivery, hemolysis therapies, and cancer therapies. However, purification of proteins from complex mixtures can require extensive process development. Current methods for protein purification rely on column chromatog…
