Join our experts for our series of webinars covering innovations in bioanalytical or immunogenicity technologies and the latest regulatory expectations from the FDA for immunogenicity testingRegulatory requirements, product complexity, and diverse biological matrices present formidable bioanalytical or immunogenicity challenges. Our complimentary webinar series covers FDA expectations for immunogenicity testing, alternative technologies for measuring immunogenicity, and also an introduction to a range of innovative and non-conventional bioanalytical technologies. The last webinar in the series looks at how to determine the best way to develop and validate pharmacokinetic (PK), immunogenicity (ADA), and neutralizing antibody (NAb) assays for a biosimilar.

As the FDA continues to push forward with the Biologics Effectiveness and Safety (BEST) Initiative, there has been an increased focus on formalizing the CDER Biomarker Qualification Program (BQP) as part of the Drug Development Tools process using recommendations put forth by the Critical Path Institute, their associated working groups; and those in public forums such as the Workshop on Recent Issues in Bioanalysis (WRIB) and American Association of Pharmaceutical Sciences (AAPS) meetings. The cumulation of these recommendations is likely to be incorporated into the revised Biomarker Qualification: Evidentiary Framework; Draft Guidance for Industry due to be released in late 2018.
This webinar will cover the evolving world of biomarker discovery, technical qualification and validation using assay formats such as Ligand Binding Assay (LBA), Liquid Chromatography – Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS) and High-Resolution Accurate Mass Spectrometry (HRAMS), and approaches taken to ensure regulatory compliance.

The FDA released an update to the Draft Guidance for Assay Development & Validation for Immunogenicity Testing of Therapeutic Proteins in April 2016. This on-demand webinar outlines how the April 2016 draft document is being used in FDA inspections and the FDA expectations for immunogenicity testing. Specific testing parameters and acceptance criteria will be discussed in depth in addition to 483 issued in the field of immunogenicity and what they mean.

The US FDA defines a biosimilar as a biological “product highly similar to the reference product without clinically meaningful differences in safety, purity and potency.” In other words, a biosimilar is a copy of an approved version of a biologic drug. There is an increased interest in developing biosimilars for the US and Global markets since many of the first generation biologics’ patents are expiring.
Views about how to approach the development of PK, ADA and NAb assays for biosimilars vary, but what’s the best way? This webinar explores the different options and focuses on the clinical bioanalytical scientific and regulatory aspects of biosimilar drug development. The regulatory aspects, including case studies, will also be discussed.
