AbstractThe preparation of large amount of purified helper-dependent adenoviral vector material is hampered by the lack of development of downstream processes with proven records on separation and recovery efficiencies. In order to facilitate the use of clinical-grade helper-dependent virus material for large-scale in vivo studies, a three-step purification scheme consisting of (1) an anion-exchange chromatography for initial capturing of virus, (2) a shallow iodixanol density gradient ultracentrifugation for the removal of helper virus from helper-dependent virus, and (3) a size-exclusion chromatography for the removal of iodixanol and residual protein contaminants as a polishing step was developed. The use of a fast iodixanol density ultracentrifugation step was highly effective in separating infectious helper-dependent virus from contaminating helper virus. The overall downstream processing scheme gave 80% infectious particle yield. The contamination ratio of helper virus in the helper-dependent virus preparation are reduced from 2.57 to 0.03% corresponding to a reduction of helper virus by factors of 85 by two iodixanol purification steps. It was also demonstrated that size-exclusion chromatography is an excellent step for the removal of iodixanol and polishing of the final helper-dependent virus preparation
