Formatted Abstract/Summary
Biotechnology and genetic engineering have facilitated a new generation of biology-based therapeutic agents known broadly as biopharmaceuticals. Many of these agents address otherwise untreatable diseases, and now represent a worldwide market of over US$100 billion per year. Most biopharmaceuticals are made in mammalian cell culture, because mammalian cells are capable of efficiently producing highly complex, biologically active molecules, such as monoclonal antibodies. Structurally complex live-attenuated and inactivated viral vaccines are also made using mammalian cell culture. Production cell lines for biopharmaceuticals are created by stable genomic integration of expression constructs encoding the genes of interest. This creates a pool of transfected cells that typically display large variations in expression level and other characteristics. For clinical and final manufacturing, single cell clones with the required productivity and product quality attributes are selected and isolated. This process is laborious, time-consuming, and typically represents a key rate-limiting step in early biologic drug development. To address these issues, efforts in the field have focused on developing automated, intelligent methods for cell selection and screening and on cell engineering for higher expression levels, improved manufacturing robustness, and better stability of production cell lines. In this article, we explore recent advances in clonal isolation and evaluation as well as developments in the field of designer cell lines for bioproduction.
