The course includes a general discussion of GMP, GLP and GCLP principles and how they apply to potency assays, limits tests, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and immunogenicity. Furthermore you will learn the principles of phase specific validation as they relate to potency Bioassays and limits tests. We will outline the industry guidelines on PK assays with an emphasis on the accuracy and precision expectations for biopharmaceuticals, including Incurred Sample Reanalysis. The immunogenicity section helps the participants understand important regulatory expectations by a systematic evaluation of critical portions of the EMA guidance. In addition you become acquainted with the specific challenges of transferring Bioassays between laboratories and you get a checklist to identify and overcome the hurdles in the process. Workshops on writing validation protocols provide hands-on experience to cover these pivotal documents. You will also hear case studies that add relevance to the lecture materials and provide a launch point for class discussion.
The number of biopharmaceutical products is increasing in the clinic and in the market. Their excellent targeting ability is the result of a high complexity that cannot be measured by analytical tests alone. Therefore, the development process of all biopharmaceutical products requires non-analytical tests to fully evaluate their functionality and safety. Biopharmaceutical development is a multi-disciplinary effort that involves many professionals with diverse backgrounds. This course will help team members without the appropriate technical background by clarifying the timelines, requirements and significance of Bioassays-based testing. The types of methods that will be addressed are cell-based assays, immunoassays and molecular assays.
