  • Case Study: Farm Animal (Goat) that Produces Human Drugs
    This case study examines in a general way the proposed use of genetically
    engineered animals to produce protein biologics for use in human therapy, referred to
    herein as human biologics 1 , human proteins, or transgenic proteins, including the
    disposition of those animals. The case study uses the example of a goat engineered to
    express a human protein in its milk. The protein is then extracted and purified for
    therapeutic use in humans. While there are products under review, because no such
    product has completed the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulatory process, this
    case study is relatively general.
