Preparation and application of artificial anti-idiotypic imprints
Publication date: 2002
This patent application describes the use of molecular imprinting as a means for preparation of anti-idiotypic imprint matrices. With this technique, imprints of artificial or natural molecules including their recognition sites, such as of molecularly imprinted polymers or biological receptors, antibodies or enzymes, can be prepared. In the former case, using the original imprints as casts or molds in a subsequent polymerisation step, utilising preferentially functionally complementary monomers, the formation of imprint materials containing recognition sites complementary in shape and functionality with the original imprint can be obtained but being of different composition. Alternatively, imprints or images of the artificial or biological species can be obtained directly. The so formed preparations can be used in a vast variety of applications, e.g. as new drugs, inhibitors or new affinity materials.
