Biogen Idec Inc., Cambridge, MA, USA.

The 2014 8th Workshop on Recent Issues in Bioanalysis (8th WRIB), a 5-day full immersion in the evolving field of bioanalysis, took place in Universal City, California, USA. Close to 500 professionals from pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations and regulatory agencies worldwide convened to share, review, discuss and agree on approaches to address current issues of interest in bioanalysis. The topics covered included both small and large molecules, and involved LCMS, hybrid LBA/LCMS, LBA approaches and immunogenicity. From the prolific discussions held during the workshop, specific recommendations are presented in this 2014 White Paper. As with the previous years' editions, this paper acts as a practical tool to help the bioanalytical community continue advances in scientific excellence, improved quality and better regulatory compliance. Due to its length, the 2014 edition of this comprehensive White Paper has been divided into three parts for editorial reasons. This publication (Part 3) covers the recommendations for Large molecules bioanalysis using LBA and Immunogenicity. Part 1 (Small molecules bioanalysis using LCMS) and Part 2 (Hybrid LBA/LCMS, Electronic Laboratory Notebook and Regulatory Agencies' Input) were published in the Bioanalysis issues 6(22) and 6(23), respectively.

Systematic verification of bioanalytical similarity between a biosimilar and a reference biotherapeutic: committee recommendations for the development and validation of a single ligand-binding assay to support pharmacokinetic assessments.

AAPS J 2014 Nov 3;16(6):1149-58. Epub 2014 Oct 3.

Janssen Research and Development, LLC, 1400 McKean Road,, PO Box 1776, Spring House, Pennsylvania, 19477, USA,

For biosimilar drug development, it is critical to demonstrate similar physiochemical characteristics, efficacy, and safety of the biosimilar product compared to the reference product. Therefore, pharmacokinetic (PK) and immunogenicity (antidrug antibody, ADA) assays that allow for the demonstration of biosimilarity are critical. Under the auspices of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) Ligand-Binding Assay Bioanalytical Focus Group (LBABFG), a Biosimilars Action Program Committee (APC) was formed in 2011. The goals of this Biosimilars APC were to provide a forum for in-depth discussions on issues surrounding the development and validation of PK and immunogenicity assays in support of biosimilar drug development and to make recommendations thereof. The Biosimilars APC's recommendations for the development and validation of ligand-binding assays (LBAs) to support the PK assessments for biosimilar drug development are presented here. Analytical recommendations for the development and validation of LBAs to support immunogenicity assessments will be the subject of a separate white paper.

Challenges of developing and validating immunogenicity assays to support comparability studies for biosimilar drug development.

Bioanalysis 2012 Sep;4(17):2169-77

Department of Biologics Bioanalytical, Merck, 1011 Morris Avenue, NJ 07083, USA.

Imminent patent expiry for a number of biological products currently on the market (many of which are blockbusters) has created an increasing opportunity for the development of biosimilars in the biotechnology industry. The key for successful biosimilar development is to demonstrate biosimilarity to the originator drug. In addition to demonstrating the similarity of physical and chemical properties between biosimilar and originator compounds, regulatory agencies require that immunogenicity be evaluated in comparative studies between biosimilar and originator drugs. Immunogenicity assays are generally non-quantitative (qualitative) and proving similarity/comparability based on qualitative assays can be very challenging. This review will discuss the challenges of developing and validating immunogenicity assays to support preclinical and clinical comparative studies for biosimilar drug development as well as the challenges in association with the interpretation of the data.

Recommendations and requirements for the design of bioanalytical testing used in comparability studies for biosimilar drug development.

Bioanalysis 2011 Mar;3(5):535-40

Department of Biologics Bioanalytical, Merck, 1011 Morris Avenue, Building U13-1, Union, NJ 07083, USA.

With the imminent expiry of patents on a number of biological products on the market, the development of biosimilars (or 'follow-on biologics') creates an increasing opportunity in the biotechnology industry. Although general guidelines on the quality and safety of biological products also apply to biosimilars, there is a need to address specific requirements for developing biosimilar drugs. Since it is critical to show comparability of the biosimilar products to their reference (or innovator) products, developing the appropriate bioanalytical methods to support such preclinical and clinical comparability studies is of great importance. The present work recommends the requirements for the development and validation for both pharmacokinetic and immunogenicity assays to support the biosimilar drug development.

GlycoPEGylation of recombinant therapeutic proteins produced in Escherichia coli.

Glycobiology 2006 Sep 22;16(9):833-43. Epub 2006 May 22.

Department of Medical Biochemistry and Genetics, Glycobiology, University of Copenhagen, Blegdamsvej 3, DK-2200 Copenhagen N, Denmark.

Covalent attachment of polyethylene glycol, PEGylation, has been shown to prolong the half-life and enhance the pharmacodynamics of therapeutic proteins. Current methods for PEGylation, which rely on chemical conjugation through reactive groups on amino acids, often generate isoforms in which PEG is attached at sites that interfere with bioactivity. Here, we present a novel strategy for site-directed PEGylation using glycosyltransferases to attach PEG to O-glycans. The process involves enzymatic GalNAc glycosylation at specific serine and threonine residues in proteins expressed without glycosylation in Escherichia coli, followed by enzymatic transfer of sialic acid conjugated with PEG to the introduced GalNAc residues. The strategy was applied to three therapeutic polypeptides, granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF), interferon-alpha2b (IFN-alpha2b), and granulocyte/macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF), which are currently in clinical use.
