Claim of US Patent No. 9,890,362

1. A method for culturing viruses for production and manufacture, the method comprising:
growing host cells;
introducing to the host cells a composition comprising media for growing viral cultures comprising one or more ethylene oxide
propylene oxide (EO-PO) block copolymers before, during, or after viral infection of the host cells; the one or more EO-PO
block copolymers comprising poloxamer 407, poloxamer 403, or a combination thereof, wherein the concentration of the EO-PO
block copolymer is from 0.001% to 3.0% (w/v);

introducing viruses to the host cells before, during or after introduction of the composition;
incubating the host cells, the viruses, and the media for a predetermined period to culture the viruses;
separating the media from the host cells; and
harvesting the cultured viruses from the media.
