Title:Soluble hyaluronidase glycoprotein (sHASEGP), process for preparing the same, uses and pharmaceutical compositions comprising thereof
Abstract: The invention relates to the discovery of novel soluble neutral active Hyaluronidase Glycoproteins (sHASEGP's), methods of manufacture, and their use to facilitate administration of other molecules or to alleviate glycosaminoglycan associated pathologies. Minimally active polypeptide domains of the soluble, neutral active sHASEGP domains are described that include asparagine-linked sugar moieties required for a functional neutral active hyaluronidase domain. Included are modified amino-terminal leader peptides that enhance secretion of sHASEGP. The invention further comprises sialated and pegylated forms of a recombinant sHASEGP to enhance stability and serum pharmacokinetics over naturally occurring slaughterhouse enzymes. Further described are suitable formulations of a substantially purified recombinant sHASEGP glycoprotein derived from a eukaryotic cell that generate the proper glycosylation required for its optimal activity.

Application Number:12/378,969
Claims:1. A method for delivering a therapeutically effective drug or pharmaceutical agent to a subject, comprising: a) administering a hyaluronidase glycoprotein to a tissue in the subject in an amount sufficient to degrade glycosaminoglycans, wherein: the hyaluronidase glycoprotein consists of the sequence of amino acids set forth as amino acids 36-477, 36-478, 36-479, 36-480, 36-481, 36-482, or 36-483 of SEQ ID NO: 1, or contains amino acid substitutions in the sequence of amino acids set forth as amino acids 36-477, 36-478, 36-479, 36-480, 36-481, 36-482 or 36-483 of SEQ ID NO:1, whereby the amino-acid substituted hyaluronidase glycoprotein consists of a sequence of amino acids that has at least 95% amino acid sequence identity with the sequence of amino acids set forth as amino acids 36-477, 36-478, 36-479, 36-480, 36-481, 36-482 or 36-483 of SEQ ID NO:1; the glycoprotein is neutral active; and the glycoprotein contains at least one sugar moiety that is covalently attached to an asparagine (N) residue of the polypeptide; and b) administering a therapeutically effective amount of the drug or pharmaceutical agent to the subject.

2. The method of claim 1, wherein the drug or pharmaceutical agent is selected from among a small molecule and a protein.

3. The method of claim 1, wherein the drug or pharmaceutical agent is selected from among a chemotherapeutic agent, an analgesic agent, an anti-inflammatory agent, an antimicrobial agent, an amoebicidal agent, a trichomonocidal agent, an anti-Parkinson agent, an anti-malarial agent, an anticonvulsant agent, an anti-depressant agent, an anti-arthritic agent, an anti-fungal agent, an antihypertensive agent, an antipyretic agent, an anti-parasite agent, an antihistamine agent, an alpha-adrenergic agonist agent, an alpha blocker agent, an anesthetic agent, a bronchial dilator agent, a biocide agent, a bactericide agent, a bacteriostat agent, a beta adrenergic blocker agent, a calcium channel blocker agent, a cardiovascular drug agent, a contraceptive agent, a decongestant agent, a diuretic agent, a depressant agent, a diagnostic agent, an electrolyte agent, a hypnotic agent, a hormone agent, a hyperglycemic agent, a muscle relaxant agent, a muscle contractant agent, an ophthalmic agent, a parasympathomimetic agent, a sedative agent, a sympathomimetic agent, a tranquilizer agent, a viricide agent, a vitamin agent, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent, an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor agent, a cytokine, an antibody, antibody fragment, an insulin and a sleep inducer.
