  • Publication number: 20100172895
    Abstract: Antigen binding proteins that bind to human CGRP receptor (CGRP R) are provided. Nucleic acids encoding the antigen binding protein, vectors, and cells encoding the same are also provided. The antigen binding proteins can inhibit binding of CGRP R to CGRP, and are useful in a number of CGRP R related disorders, including the treatment and/or prevention of migraine headaches.

  • Patent number: 7709611
    Abstract: The present invention provides antibodies and immunologically functional fragments thereof that specifically bind Dkk-1 polypeptides. The subject antibodies and fragments bind with high affinity to a conformational epitope located in the carboxy region of the Dkk-1 protein. Methods for preparing such antibodies or fragments thereof as well as physiologically acceptable compositions containing the antibodies or fragments are also provided. Use of the antibodies and fragments to treat various diseases including bone disorders, inflammatory diseases, neurological diseases, ocular diseases, renal diseases, pulmonary diseases and skin diseases are also disclosed.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 5929032
    Abstract: The survival and proliferation of Schwann cells can be promoted by culturing such cells in the presence of peptides derived from the EGF-like domain of proteins from the NDF/heregulin family. Colon epithelial cells can be stimulated to multiply and differentiate by culturing such cells in the presence of the same peptides.

    Date of Patent: July 27, 1999
    Assignee: Amgen Inc.
    Inventors: Josette Fran.cedilla.oise Carnahan, Shinichi Hara, Hsieng Sen Lu, John Philip Mayer, Steven Kiyoshi Yoshinaga
  • Patent number: 5849705
    Abstract: Schwann cells can be treated in vivo to survive longer and to proliferate by contacting them with peptides derived from the EGF-like domain of proteins of the NDF/heregulin family.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: December 5, 1996
    Date of Patent: December 15, 1998
    Assignee: Amgen Inc.
    Inventors: Josette Francoise Carnahan, Shinichi Hara, Hsieng Sen Lu, John Philip Mayer
  • Patent number: 5686415
    Abstract: Colon epithelial cells are stimulated to multiply, grow and mature by contacting them in vivo with peptides derived from the EGF-like domain of proteins of the NDF/heregulin family.
    Type: Grant
