The Next Frontier

Drug development is an arduous process punctuated by go/no-go decisions related to the efficacy and safety of drug candidates. When a new preclinical drug candidate with a reasonable profile of efficacy and safety is identified, it is still uncertain whether this new therapeutic agent will ultimately make its way to the patient and advance human health. In fact, ~90% of all compounds entering clinical trials fail, largely due to safety issues in clinical phases or drug efficacy issues in patients (1).

Planning the Execution of a Viral Clearance Study

Eurofins BioPharma Product Testing

Viral clearance studies are a necessary component of any regulatory submission for clinical trials or commercial product approval for all biopharmaceutical products. These studies are performed to evaluate the capability of the purification process to remove or inactivate viruses that could potentially contaminate the starting material. They are complex studies that require substantial financial and personnel resources, as well as specialized scientific expertise to perform. As such, viral clearance studies are often performed at a qualified contract testing laboratory rather than in-house. When multiple parties are involved in this process, clear communication and a comprehensive understanding of the approach and timeline is critical.
