protein containing 165 amino acids, and it has an approximate molecular weight
of 19,000 daltons. Fermentation is carried out in a defined nutrient medium
containing the antibiotic tetracycline hydrochloride, 5 mg/L. However, the presence
of the antibiotic is not detectable in the final product. Roferon-A is supplied
in prefilled syringes. Each glass syringe barrel contains 0.5 mL of product.
