Ten recombinant proteins used in medical practice are −

Recombinant protein Therapeutic use
Insulin Treatment for type I diabetes mellitus
Interferon-α Used for chronic hepatitis C
Interferon -β Used against herpes and viral enteritis
Coagulation factor VIII Treatment of haemophilia A
Coagulation factor IX Treatment of haemophilia B
DNAase I Treatment of cystic fibrosis
Anti-thrombin III Prevention of blood clot
Interferon B For treatment of multiple sclerosis
Human recombinant growth hormone For promoting growth in an individual
Tissue plasminogen activator Treatment of acute myocardial infarction
