Kamada, a biopharmaceutical company developing, manufacturing and marketing specialty life-saving therapeutics, has announced the launching of a new e-commerce website for its Human Ultrapure Transferrin.

Transferrin is a protein found in human blood. It binds to and transports iron in the bloodstream from, and to, cells.

In cellular biology practice, Transferrin is added to cell culture media to ensure that growing cells are adequately supplied with iron. Additionally, Transferrin iron binding properties reduce the potential for damage to the cells caused by free radicals formed when other sources of iron are added to cell culture media.

Transferrin is also studied for pharmaceutical applications as a potential conjugate material (carrier) to a number of active molecules, including various chemotherapy drugs. By attaching the drug molecule to Transferrin, the active drug is targeted directly to the site of action thanks to the Transferrin receptors that are found on the target cells. This makes the Transferrin-drug compound a highly efficient pharmaceutical preparation.

Kamada is manufacturing its transferrin in its fully GMP facility using chromatographic purification techniques, and the manufacturing technology of the Human Transferrin is patented.

The new website will allow potential customers to review the products available and learn more about Human Transferrin, indications and potential.
