Recombinant Canine Thyroid Stimulating Hormone and Methods of Production and Use Thereof

 

Description of Technology:

This technology is a method for providing an improved source for pure canine thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) by using recombinant technology.

Applications:

Recombinant Canine Thyroid Stimulating Hormone can be used to test pets for hypothyroidism without harvesting TSH from bovine pituitary glands, as bovine pituitary derivatives pose a danger for transmission of diseases including bovine spongioform encephalitis (BSE – “mad cow” disease) and rabies.

Features and Benefits:

This technology features the following benefits: (1) production of consistent batch-to-batch canine TSH in order to avoid the hazards associated with harvesting and purifying TSH from bovine pituitaries, and (2) TSH can be engineered to increase half-life and bioactivity, thus further maximizing efficacy and cost-efficiency.
