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 to develop and validate ADA assays supporting biosimilar drug development programs. It has taken years of industry discussion and collaboration…

Posted by Dr. Corinna Fiorotti / / BioAgilytix Insight, Cell Therapy

Most bioanalytical methods for canonical small or large molecule drugs utilize ligand binding or LC–MS technology for pharmacokinetic (PK) assessments. CAR-T cell therapies involve administration of ‘living drugs’ capable of proliferation after infusion. This behavior is very different from conventional drug compounds, and the term ‘cellular kinetics’ was coined for in vivo ‘PK monitoring’ of both the expansion and persistence of the genetically engineered CAR-T cells.
