Development of minor dairy components as therapeutic agents - whey growth factor extract, a case study


Development of minor dairy components as therapeutic agents - whey growth factor extract, a case study



Australian Journal of Dairy Technology 58(2): 104-106



Bovine whey is a rich source of proteins with different physical and physiological activity. Cheddar cheese whey is used as a novel source material for the development of a candidate human therapeutic agent - whey growth factor extract (WGFE). The technology for this product has incorporated all aspects of the drug development pipeline, including pre-clinical testing, pharmaceutical grade manufacture and human clinical trials.
