Summary for Patent: 5,912,131
Title: Detection of type 1 collagen degradation in vivo
Abstract:Compositions useful in quantitating collagen peptides to determine the rate of bone resorption are prepared by treating bone with a protease, such as collagenase, and purifying the compositions so as to enrich them with peptides that contain 3-hydroxypyridinium cross-links.
Inventor(s): Eyre; David R. (Mercer Island, WA)
Assignee: Washington Research Foundation (Seattle, WA)
Application Number:08/965,699
Patent Claims:1. A composition comprising peptides produced by digesting bone collagen with a protease capable of generating peptides that bind to the monoclonal antibody 1H11, and then purifying the digested bone collagen to increase the concentration of peptides that contain a 3-hydroxypyridinium cross-link by at least 10-fold.

2. A composition according to claim 1, wherein the protease is bacterial collagenase.

3. A method of preparing an immunological binding partner, comprising the steps of immunizing an animal with the purified digested bone collagen composition of claim 1, and harvesting antibodies that bind to peptide fragments derived from bone collagen resorption and containing 3-hydroxypyridinium cross-links.

4. In a method of analyzing a body fluid sample for the presence or concentration of an analyte indicative of a physiological condition, comprising the steps of contacting the body fluid sample with an immunological binding partner which binds to the analyte, detecting binding of the immunological binding partner in the body fluid sample, and correlating any detected binding to the physiological condition, the improvement comprising contacting the body fluid sample with an immunological binding partner produced by immunizing an animal with the purified digested bone collagen of claim 1, and correlating any detected binding to degradation of type I collagen in vivo.
