Transgenic animals can be engineered to express complex human proteins at high concentrations in milk. Protein replacement therapy is often the only treatment available for congenital diseases such as hemophilia or lysosomal storage disease, and the cost of treatment can be high with the therapeutic protein market estimated to reach more than $50 billion by 2010.
