Danielle J C Komen and colleagues, the authors of this Endgames quiz (BMJ 2011;343:d3132, doi:10.1136/bmj.d3132), have alerted us to their omission relating to the European Medicines Agency’s recent approval of C1 esterase inhibitor (C1INH) produced by transgenic rabbits. They state that because of the small, but serious, risk of viral transmission using human plasma or plasma derived products, human recombinant C1INH produced by transgenic animals has been developed and was approved by the European Medicines Agency in October 2010.
