Antibody Internalization: Advanced Flow Cytometry and Live-Cell Analysis Give Rich Insights During Antibody Profiling

Sartorius Group

The natural characteristics of antibodies, such as high binding affinity, specificity to a wide variety of targets, and good stability, make them ideal therapeutic candidates for many diseases. Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), in particular, deliver promising therapeutic results in several different disease areas, such as autoimmunity, oncology, and chronic inflammation. Researchers’ abilities to improve the breadth of antibodies have been aided by innovative technologies for antibody discovery, for instance, through humanization of mouse antibodies and phage display. However, advanced antibody design techniques create the need for new screening methods so that lead candidates can be quickly and effectively identified as early in the development process as possible.

Pandemic respiratory vaccine clinical trials: a departure from business as usual

ICON plc

Around the world, the “V” words are on everyone’s lips: Virus and Vaccines. In response to the urgent need for a vaccine for COVID-19, researchers are, at time of publication, running 500+ clinical trials (and counting) on a number of antivirals, antibodies and vaccines. Promising possibilities range from novel new drugs/vaccines, repurposing treatments currently indicated for HIV, Ebola and malaria, to monoclonal antibodies and immune serum.

Financial implications of off-site visits in clinical research, perception versus reality

Illingworth Research

The concept of patient centricity is still relatively new within clinical trials. For too long, the most important person in the trial has been overlooked… the patient. Here, we explore the benefits of conducting a more patient-centric trial for the patient, site and sponsor through mobile, or ‘off-site’ visits. These advantages are much greater than purely financial, although the financial implications of running a more patient-focused clinical trial may previously have deterred some from this approach. Home nursing in clinical trials continues to be thought of as a high value “premium” service, which many sponsors decline in an attempt to remain within budget for the trial. However, is the actual cost of off-site nursing more expensive than the traditional site model?

Accelerating the Time from DNA to Material

Merck

Cell line development is a critical step in upstream process development for monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). Unfortunately, the search for the bestproducing clone can be labor- and resource-intensive and is often compared with looking for a needle in a haystack. Cells must first be engineered to produce the biologic of interest and the cell line generated from a high producing clone must deliver a sufficiently high titer to support clinical studies, and ultimately commercialization of the therapeutic.

Comparator Sourcing in Oncology Trials

Clinical Services International

This is an exciting time for oncology trials, year on year record numbers of therapeutics are launched and the indications for many drugs on the market are increasing rapidly. Immunotherapies and next generation biotherapeutics are being approved for more tumour types and a growing percentage of the late stage oncology pipeline are targeted biologics.

Outsourcing and Insourcing: How Eurofins solves the bio/pharma industry’s challenges associated with meeting drug development timelines and budgets with restricted headcounts

Eurofins BioPharma Product Testing

Pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies face a significant challenge to get their drug products developed and launched quickly, all while keeping development costs down. One of the most common ways for companies to lower development costs is to manage fixed headcounts. But when the same scope of work still needs to be completed by a designated time with fewer staff members, this presents a significant challenge. So, how do bio/pharma companies solve this ever so common challenge of increasing output while decreasing headcount? There are essentially three options: temporary staffing, outsourcing, or insourcing.

Clinical Trials in Emerging Markets: Goldmines or Landmines?

Pharm-Olam, LLC

Over the past decade, biopharmaceutical companies have increasingly turned to emerging markets as a way to reduce clinical trial costs and timelines. Areas such as Eastern Europe, India, and Latin America—with their ready population of treatment naïve patients—can be an answer to the intense competition for patients seen in developed markets. Many of the countries within these regions may now be considered as “emerged” countries but yet, conducting trials in these regions does require some special attention and expertise. Before deciding to conduct studies in these areas, companies should have a full appreciation for the ethical, medical, regulatory, legal, and operational hurdles that must be surmounted for success. Here we highlight a number of those issues and offer our recommendations for how sponsor companies can deal with them effectively.

The Emerging Use of Social Media in Orphan Disease Drug Research

Worldwide Clinical Trials Ltd

The use of various social media platforms, such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn, for dissemination of clinical trial information has created a cornucopia of possibilities enabling clinical trial performance. Characterized by a people-to-people immediacy, social media permits extraordinarily adaptive modification of study information in real-time, and it does so in a highly targeted fashion.

ADM Supports Clinical Trial into Effects of Probiotic Supplements for COVID-19 Patients in Hospital Care

ADM and Hospital de Sagunto, one of the largest medical centers in the Valencia region, today announce their partnership for a clinical trial into the effects of using a food supplement containing live microbial strains to promote gut microbiome balance and help improve health functions related to outcomes for COVID-19 patients in high-risk groups. On 18th March Dr Xavier Cortés, gastroenterologist at Hospital de Sagunto, communicated with medical staff in China who had observed that many COVID-19 patients had exhibited abnormal changes in their gut microbiome.
