Accessing Difficult-to- Synthesise Metabolites in Drug Development Programmes

Access to major and/or disproportionate metabolites as part of drug development programmes is critical to ensure adherence to regulatory guidelines issued by the EMA and FDA, as well as to comply with internal safety standards within pharmaceutical companies themselves (1-2).

Identification and characterisation of metabolites ensures not only rigorous safety evaluation of significant metabolites, but can also expand patent coverage and reveal superior potency, reduced side effects, or improved physical properties compared to the parent drug.

Multiple options are available for making metabolites through both chemical and biological routes, as discussed by scientists at Abbvie (3) and summarised in Figure 1.

pAVEway™ expression system for the efficient expression of therapeutic proteins

Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies

One of the major bottlenecks in the production of biopharmaceuticals is the efficient expression of therapeutic proteins in microbial or mammalian cells. The Escherichia coli pAVEway™ expression system described here has been developed to ensure high product titres and efficient scale up to GMP manufacture, whilst minimising many common issues seen in other expression systems, such as ‘leaky’ expression (expression of recombinant protein in the absence of inducer).
