Comprehensive Comparability Analysis of Biosimilars to Reference Biologicals.

Development of a biosimilar follows stringent standards to engineer a molecule that should be indistinguishable from the reference biologic. Rather than determining and establishing the product’s clinical efficacy, the regulatory requirement for biosimilars is to demonstrate that it is highly similar to the reference biologic in terms of quality characteristics, biological activity, safety and efficacy.

Next generation protein sequencing (NGPS) and proteomics can initiate and facilitate the comprehensive comparability analyses – a requirement from regulatory bodies (FDA BCPI Act; EMA Directive 2001/83/EC) – between biosimilars and their respective reference biologics. Determining the protein sequence of the reference biologic permits comparative characterization of the structure and performance of the biosimilar, while proteomics techniques can provide insight into the physicochemical and biological properties of the biosimilar.

Since 2006, the One Health Initiative (OHI)’s goal has been to demonstrate the inextricable link between humans, animals, and the environment. Certainly, the current global pandemic is a great testament to the ties between climate change, humans, and animals that OHI has been working to highlight. The rise of other zoonotic diseases (e.g., Hendra, and Nipah viruses) not only directly affect humans through disease transmission but may also result in deep impacts to the food supply

Ushering the New Era in Anti-Drug Antibody Assays with Next Generation Protein Sequencing

Anti-drug antibody (ADA) assays are critical to assess the clinical efficacy and safety of a biological drug and rely on control reagents that mimic the ADA response to the biological drug being tested. These positive controls typically consist of animal-derived pooled polyclonal antibodies or human monoclonal antibody reference panels against the target protein drug.

The protein sequence is key to understanding the function of a protein target and is critical to therapeutic and diagnostic development. This is particularly important for antibodies whose code diversity and glycosylation impact both function, and stability.

“We’re focused on coupling cytokines with a highly engineered VHVL of an antibody. So by sequencing the antibodies with Rapid Novor we are able to pull out the CDR to graft them into our platform and test in vitro and in vivo.”
