Biologics-based medicines have transformed the treatment of many complex and life-threatening human diseases. Unlike chemically synthesized small molecule drugs, biologics comprise “natural” materials such as proteins and carbohydrates.
In animal health, biologics such as antibodies, enzymes, hormones proteins and similar products help to i) improve productivity and feed-conversion rates, ii) decrease mortality and morbidity, iii) reduce the widespread use of antibiotics, iv) increase the availability of affordable vaccines, v) improve weaning and, vi) decrease pollution effluents.
Bio-Sourcing’s groundbreaking approach to bio-production means that such therapies, currently available for human therapeutic applications, will now cost significantly less than we have come to expect for therapeutic biologicals products. These therapies will help to provide sustainable environmental and economical solutions for animal healthcare.
