European Biopharmaceutical Review

Editor’s Letter

Proteins, proteins, proteins. They are a main feature in our spring edition of EBR – perhaps not surprisingly, considering the continued increase in adoption to clinical practice of high-value, high-performing protein therapeutics and the need for their manufacture at scale by the biopharmaceutical industry.

Rentschler Biotechnologie’s Dr Stefan R Schmidt and Dr Birgit Schwab would argue that, considering the market size and recent numbers of US and European approvals in these drug classes, the future for mid-size contract development and manufacturing organisations lies in complex proteins or ‘modern biopharmaceuticals’; monoclonal antibodies and proteins for cancer and autoimmune conditions in particular (see full pdf). In their articles, Christian Loch from AVMBioMed (see full pdf) and Kim Plasman, Kris Gevaert, Francis Impens and Tony Montoye (see full pdf) agree that, at present, proteomics is the best means for capturing this vital information.

AVMBioMed highlight the need to consider the importance of post-translational modification in defining the human protein repertoire, and the Trinean team plus Kris Gavaert and Francis Impens flag the need for further improvements in quality to move proteomics towards a unified regulatory process.

Why You Should Be Using Ultrasonic Cleaning

Natoli Engineering Company, Inc.

Clean punches and dies are essential to maintaining the integrity and efficiency of your tooling investment, as well as the quality of your product. Ultrasonic cleaning has long been considered the most effective, nondestructive way to clean tools – from medical instruments to tablet tooling. The Tableting Specification Manual (TSM) states, “An ultrasonic bath is ideal for cleaning tooling.” This high-tech cleaning process also saves time, reduces cost and is better for the environment.
