Here's a study saying, "Several commercially available biopharmaceutical products were found to contain misfolded proteins."


A Role for Protein Misfolding in Immunogenicity of Biopharmaceuticals

For largely unknown reasons, biopharmaceuticals evoke potentially harmful antibody formation. Such antibodies can inhibit drug efficacy and, when directed against endogenous proteins, cause life-threatening complications. …Several commercially available biopharmaceutical products were found to contain misfolded proteins. In some cases, the level of misfolded protein was found to increase upon storage under conditions prescribed by the manufacturer. Our results indicate that misfolding of therapeutic proteins is an immunogenic signal and a risk factor for immunogenicity.


Immunogenicity being "side effects."
