Tissue Growth Factors BMP 2 - Biotech, Pharma and Life Science Channel

02:03 EDT 18th June 2018 | BioPortfolio

The classical tissue factors typically are proteins used for tissue repair and growth stimulation. Among the approved products are the growth factors PDGF, IGF, EGF, BMP and FGF. One of the commercially most successful growth factors is BMP-2 from Medtronic and Pfizer (ex Wyeth) with annual sales of nearly US$ 800 mln and prospect for further growth by use in additional indications. Growth factors are used for treatment of growth failure, skin wounds and ulcers, corneal damage, oral mucositis or to stimulate bone growth. Further growth factors such as HGF, VEGF, TGF, NGF, GDF and quite a number of neurotrophic factors are under development. Apart from proteins as the classical drugs, other classes of compounds are also under development such as small molecules to stimulate growth factor receptors or antibodies to block inhibitory pathways, thereby inducing functional recovery. Furthermore, engineered peptides mimicking growth factors, cells engineered to express growth factors or simply plasmids for growth factors are under development.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

These growth factors are soluble mitogens secreted by a variety of organs. The factors are a mixture of two single chain polypeptides which have affinity to heparin. Their molecular weight are organ and species dependent. They have mitogenic and chemotactic effects and can stimulate endothelial cells to grow and synthesize DNA. The factors are related to both the basic and acidic FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTORS but have different amino acid sequences.

A family of transcription factors that are induced by GROWTH FACTORS and contain a highly conserved DNA-binding domain composed of three ZINC FINGER MOTIFS.

An angiogenic protein belonging to the Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor family of growth factors originally isolated and cloned from human placental cDNA library. There are four isoforms of PLGF 1-4 which result from alternative splicing. Placenta Growth Factor is secreted as a glycosylated homodimer which acts as a mitogen for endothelial cells, and its expression is markedly upregulated during hypoxia and in tissue inflammation and cancer.

Procedures for enhancing and directing tissue repair and renewal processes, such as BONE REGENERATION; NERVE REGENERATION; etc. They involve surgically implanting growth conducive tracks or conduits (TISSUE SCAFFOLDING) at the damaged site to stimulate and control the location of cell repopulation. The tracks or conduits are made from synthetic and/or natural materials and may include support cells and induction factors for CELL GROWTH PROCESSES; or CELL MIGRATION.

These growth factors comprise a family of hematopoietic regulators with biological specificities defined by their ability to support proliferation and differentiation of blood cells of different lineages. ERYTHROPOIETIN and the COLONY-STIMULATING FACTORS belong to this family. Some of these factors have been studied and used in the treatment of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia, myelodysplastic syndromes, and bone marrow failure syndromes.
