Betaseron® (Interferon beta-lb) is a purified, sterile, lyophilized protein
product produced by recombinant DNA techniques. Interferon beta-1b is manufactured
by bacterial fermentation of a strain of Escherichia coli that bears
a genetically engineered plasmid containing the gene for human interferon betaser17.
The native gene was obtained from human fibroblasts and altered in a way that
substitutes serine for the cysteine residue found at position 17. Interferon
beta-1b has 165 amino acids and an approximate molecular weight of 18,500 daltons.
It does not include the carbohydrate side chains found in the natural material.
The specific activity of Betaseron is approximately 32 million international
units (IU)/mg Interferon beta-lb. Each vial contains 0.3 mg of Interferon beta-lb.
The unit measurement is derived by comparing the antiviral activity of the product
to the World Health Organization (WHO) reference standard of recombinant human
interferon beta. Mannitol, USP and Albumin (Human), USP (15 mg each/vial) are
added as stabilizers.
Lyophilized Betaseron is a sterile, white to off-white powder, for subcutaneous
injection after reconstitution with the diluent supplied (Sodium Chloride, 0.54%
Solution).Last reviewed on RxList: 6/26/2008
