9th GCC closed forum: CAPA in regulated bioanalysis; method robustness, biosimilars, preclinical method validation, endogenous biomarkers, whole blood stability, regulatory audit experiences and electronic laboratory notebooks.

Bioanalysis 2016 Mar 26;8(6):487-95. Epub 2016 Feb 26.

WuXi/XBL, 107 Morgan Lane, Plainsboro, NJ, USA.

The 9th GCCClosed Forum was held just prior to the 2015 Workshop on Recent Issues in Bioanalysis (WRIB) in Miami, FL, USA on 13 April 2015. In attendance were 58 senior-level participants, from eight countries, representing 38 CRO companies offering bioanalytical services. The objective of this meeting was for CRO bioanalytical representatives to meet and discuss scientific and regulatory issues specific to bioanalysis. The issues selected at this year's closed forum include CAPA, biosimilars, preclinical method validation, endogenous biomarkers, whole blood stability, and ELNs. A summary of the industry's best practices and the conclusions from the discussion of these topics is included in this meeting report.

8th GCC: consolidated feedback to US FDA on the 2013 draft FDA guidance on bioanalytical method validation.

Bioanalysis 2014 ;6(22):2957-63

Covance Laboratories, Chantilly, VA, USA.

The 8th GCC Closed Forum for Bioanalysis was held in Baltimore, MD, USA on 5 December 2013, immediately following the 2013 AAPS Workshop (Crystal City V): Quantitative Bioanalytical Methods Validation and Implementation--The 2013 Revised FDA Guidance. This GCC meeting was organized to discuss the contents of the draft revised FDA Guidance on bioanalytical method validation that was published in September 2013 and consolidate the feedback of the GCC members. In attendance were 63 senior-level participants, from seven countries, representing 46 bioanalytical CRO companies/sites. This event represented a unique opportunity for CRO bioanalytical experts to share their opinions and concerns regarding the draft FDA Guidance, and to build unified comments to be provided to the FDA.

Recommendations on incurred sample stability (ISS) by GCC.

Bioanalysis 2014 Sep;6(18):2385-90

Quintiles Bioanalytical & ADME Labs, Ithaca, NY, USA.

The topic of incurred sample stability (ISS) has generated considerable discussion within the bioanalytical community in recent years. The subject was an integral part of the seventh annual Workshop on Recent Issues in Bioanalysis (WRIB) held in Long Beach, CA, USA, in April 2013, and at the Global CRO Council for Bioanalysis (GCC) meeting preceding it. Discussion at both events focused on the use of incurred samples for ISS purposes in light of results from a recent GCC survey completed by member companies. This paper reports the consensus resulting from these discussions and serves as a useful reference for depicting ISS issues and concerns, summarizing the GCC survey results and providing helpful recommendations on ISS in the context of bioanalytical method development and application.

Small molecule specific run acceptance, specific assay operation, and chromatographic run quality assessment: recommendation for best practices and harmonization from the global bioanalysis consortium harmonization teams.

AAPS J 2014 Sep 25;16(5):885-93. Epub 2014 Jun 25.

Merck Research Laboratories, WP 75B-300, West Point, Pennsylvania, 19486, USA,

Consensus practices and regulatory guidance for liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) assays of small molecules are more aligned globally than for any of the other bioanalytical techniques addressed by the Global Bioanalysis Consortium. The three Global Bioanalysis Consortium Harmonization Teams provide recommendations and best practices for areas not yet addressed fully by guidances and consensus for small molecule bioanalysis. Recommendations from all three teams are combined in this report for chromatographic run quality, validation, and sample analysis run acceptance.

Recommendations on biomarker bioanalytical method validation by GCC.

Bioanalysis 2012 Oct;4(20):2439-46

Quotient Bioresearch, Fordham, UK.

The 5th GCC in Barcelona (Spain) and 6th GCC in San Antonio (TX, USA) events provided a unique opportunity for CRO leaders to openly share opinions and perspectives, and to agree upon recommendations on biomarker bioanalytical method validation.

Recommendations on bioanalytical method stability implications of co-administered and co-formulated drugs by Global CRO Council for Bioanalysis (GCC).

Bioanalysis 2012 Sep;4(17):2117-26

Advion Bioanalytical Laboratories, Quintiles, NY, USA.

An open letter written by the Global CRO Council for Bioanalysis (GCC) describing the GCC survey results on stability data from co-administered and co-formulated drugs was sent to multiple regulatory authorities on 14 December 2011. This letter and further discussions at different GCC meetings led to subsequent recommendations on this topic of widespread interest within the bioanalytical community over the past 2 years.

The development of methodology for clinical measurement of 5-lipoxygenase pathway intermediates from human peripheral blood mononuclear cells.

J Pharm Biomed Anal 2008 Dec 30;48(5):1397-403. Epub 2008 Sep 30.

Lilly Research Laboratories, Eli Lilly & Company, Indianapolis, IN 46285, United States.

Recent studies have shown a correlation between 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) pathway up-regulation and cardiovascular risk. Despite the existence of several assays for products of the 5-LO pathway, a reliable method for clinical determination of 5-LO activity remains to be established. In the present communication, we report conditions that allow measurement of 5-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (5-HETE) and leukotriene B(4) (LTB(4)) in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) isolated from the blood of atherosclerosis patients before and after stimulation by the calcium ionophore, A23187. LTB(4), a potent mediator of inflammation-linked cardiovascular disease, was measured using an existing competitive enzyme immunoassay (EIA) kit after making specific methodological improvements that allowed PBMCs to be used in this format for the first time. LTB(4) was also measured by LC/MS/MS along with 5-HETE, a direct by-product of the action of 5-LO on arachidonic acid and a molecule for which no commercial EIA kit exists. The LC/MS/MS assay was validated over a range of 0.025-25ng/mL for LTB(4) and 0.1-25ng/mL for 5-HETE. The EIA method has a validated range covering 0.025-4ng/mL. When both assays were applied to analyze LTB(4) from stimulated PBMCs isolated from 25 subjects with various degrees of atherosclerosis, a high correlation was obtained (r=0.9426, Pearson's correlation coefficient). A high correlation was also observed between the levels of LTB(4) and 5-HETE measured by LC/MS/MS after ionophore stimulation (r=0.9159). Details are presented for optimized sample collection, processing, storage, and analysis in accordance with the logistical demands of clinical analysis.

Simultaneous quantification of atomoxetine as well as its primary oxidative and O-glucuronide metabolites in human plasma and urine using liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS).

J Pharm Biomed Anal 2005 Jul;38(4):720-33

Lilly Research Laboratories, Lilly Corporate Center, Drop Code 0720, Eli Lilly and Company, Indianapolis, IN 46285, USA.

A sensitive and selective liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) method for the determination of atomoxetine and its metabolites (4-hydroxyatomoxetine, N-des-methylatomoxetine, and 4-hydroxyatomoxetine-O-glucuronide) has been developed for human plasma and urine. Using stable-labeled internal standards, the method proved to be accurate and precise for the analytes in all species, resulting in inter-batch accuracy (percent relative error, %RE) within 100+/-13% and inter-batch precision (relative standard deviation, %RSD) within 11%. Stability was demonstrated for the analytes in neat solutions and the reconstitution solvent, as well as plasma and urine (with or without the deconjugation reagent). The method was simple, robust (utilized for the analysis of several hundred clinical study samples), and amenable to high sample throughput.
