On this episode of Molecular Moments, Lynn Kamen, Ph.D., and Michelle Miller, Ph.D. DABT discuss their very different journeys to
According to research compiled by Reports and Data, in 2018 the global biologics market was valued at over $250 million, but is projected to reach an estimated $625 million by the end of 2026 with an 11.9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Biologics are medications made up of proteins, sugars, or DNA, and oftentimes are a complex combination of these materials and by-products. Biologics can also be composed of living

BioAgilytix’s Todd Lester answers questions submitted by attendees of his recent Bioanalysis Zone webinar on immunogenicity testing for biosimilars.
On January 23rd I’ll be hosting a webinar with Dr. Dominque Gouty that will summarize key insights from the recently published paper by the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) entitled “Recommendations for the Development and Validation of Immunogenicity Assays in Support of Biosimilar Programs”. I had the privilege to contribute as an author on this pivotal paper, which lays out a consensus recommendation for use of a one-assay approach
BioAgilytix has been fortunate enough to have several of our team members participate as co-authors on all three AAPS white papers in the series on bioanalytical strategies to support biosimilar programs. Learn more about the papers that collectively represent the culmination of years of discussions across industry and with regulators to create consensus recommendations that will hopefully help shape future regulatory guidelines.
Immunogenicity assessments are a critical component to determining the comparability of an originator drug and a biosimilar. It is necessary to determine both neutralizing and non-neutralizing antibody incidence for an originator drug and a biosimilar, and understand the immunogenicity’s impact on PK results as well as its association with adverse events.
An increasing number of patents for originator biologic products are due to expire, and therefore opportunity within the industry to develop additional biosimilars is growing. In response, more pieces of relevant guidance are being developed, and the increased knowledge being gained by the industry as a whole will continue to inform best practices in evolving biosimilar development processes, including those for immunogenicity testing. According to most recent FDA and EMA
The global market for biosimilars is expected to grow at an exponential rate in coming years, from only $3 billion in 2016 to a forecasted $10 billion by 2021. So, it is not a surprise that biosimilar development has continued to be a hot topic in our industry in 2017, particularly related to regulation. To secure regulatory approval for a biosimilar, the manufacturer must demonstrate that the biological product is
The US Supreme Court reached a ruling last week that will allow biosimilar companies to launch new biosimilar drugs more quickly. The decision was unanimous that these companies will not need to provide the reference product sponsor with six months’ notice after US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of their intention to launch a generic version of that biological drug. The case was brought to the Supreme Court over
According to research from the Biosimilars Council, $81 billion worth of brand name biologics will lose their patents by 2020. As a result, we are seeing a significant increase in the development of lower cost biosimilar alternatives, as well as more applications for FDA approval of biosimilars for expiring biologic drugs. In fact, this market is expected to grow more than 25-fold over the next five years. But because the
