Biologics produced using human fetal cells and/or containing human fetal DNA, proteins, or cellular debris
Biologics for cystic fibrosis:
- Pulmozyme (dornase alpha) by Roche/Genentech
Are using human fetal cell lines necessary? No.
Animal cell lines produce vaccines and biologics as economically and effectively as the human fetal cell lines. Rejuvenating anti-aging creams and cosmetic products are available produced using animal and non-fetal materials.
Are using human fetal cell lines safe? We don’t know.
Scientists are aware of the health risks of residual human DNA and retroviruses found in medical products. Ongoing studies need to be done, and SCPI is doing those studies.
