Remicade, Humira, Cimzia, etc. Making a drug like prednisone, for example, only requires the right chemicals, and the equipment to mix them properly. Biologic drugs are based on very complicated molecules — usually antibodies. Antibodies are used by the immune filefype to attack invaders like viruses and bacteria. Biologic drugs create counterfeit antibodies to trick the immune system. Remicade and Humira, for example, are antibodies against TNF — a molecule ciletype is a normal part of a healthy immune system.

In inflammatory manufacuring, the body produces more TNF than it should; biologic drugs like Remicade fool the immune system into getting rid of some of its own TNF molecules. Antibodies are made by living cells — for example, the cells in your immune system.
Immortal in this sense only means that the cells will reproduce indefinitely, where most normal human cells will only reproduce so many times before they stop.
The only cells in your body that are immortal in this sense are cancer cells. Cells from tumors are an important source of cell lines for biotechnology. This is done by using a modified virus to introduce new DNA — that is, genetic engineering. This technique has been used to make cells from Chinese hamster ovaries and fetal sdalimumab retina into useful biotech cell lines.

Scientists are also developing ways to make biologic drugs using bacterial cells, like E. The next step is changing the cells to make the appropriate antibody.
In some cases, that means injecting the cells with the antibody manuracturing, and letting it make antibodies naturally. More likely, it involves further genetic engineering. Extra DNA is introduced to the cell, to try to get it to make the correct antibody. Remicade infliximab is a chimeric antibody, made from mouse cells that have been engineered to make human-like antibodies.
Humira adalimumab is a fully human antibody, but it is made using Adalimummab hamster cells. In this case the researchers have been able to design a genetic sequence that makes a fully human antibody, without using any DNA from the hamster cell itself in the sequence. Because the product of that process looks like a regular human antibody, reactions to Humira are less common.
How Biologic Drugs Are Made
Once a cell line has been engineered, the researchers look for the cells that grow best and produce the most of the antibody. A bioreactor provides the right manufacturong for the cells to grow and produce the desired antibody.
Bioreactors have to maintain parameters like temperature, PH, dissolved oxygen, and many more, to make sure the cells have the best conditions for growth. After the cells have been allowed to grow for a while — for Humira, that takes 15 days — the bioreactors are processed to purify the antibody.
No live cells should make it into the finished product, unless something goes wrong. This DNA poses no real risk to the patient, in any case. As you can procesz, all of the above techniques and steps are more expensive than plain chemistry, which is one of the reasons why biologic drugs are more expensive than most other medicines.
And as the technology progresses, it should become less expensive and even safer. The main source for this article was Li, Feng; et al.
