PRACTICAL RELEVANCE neutering kittens at an early age, typically between 6 and 14 weeks, has received increasing attention and gained prominence in recent years, particularly in the United States and in shelter medicine in the UK. However, in private practice it has yet to be generally endorsed. GLOBAL IMPORTANCE among many of the animal welfare(More)
Human IgG is a bivalent molecule that has two identical Fab domains connected by a dimeric Fc domain. For therapeutic purposes, however, the bivalency of IgG and Fc fusion proteins could cause undesired properties. We therefore engineered the conversion of the natural dimeric Fc domain to a highly soluble monomer by introducing two Asn-linked glycans onto(More)
Ligand binding assays (LBAs) have been the method of choice for protein analyte measurements for more than four decades. Over the years, LBA methods have improved in sensitivity and achieved larger dynamic ranges by using alternative detection systems and new technologies. As a consequence, the landscape and application of immunoassay platforms has changed(More)
FXaI16L is a recombinant human FXa variant which is currently being evaluated in the clinic for treating intracerebral hemorrhage. The aim of our studies is to investigate overall pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and distribution of FXaI16L in preclinical species, and to understand its potential implication in human. Pharmacokinetics of FXaI16L was(More)
There are many sources of analytical variability in ligand binding assays (LBA). One strategy to reduce variability has been duplicate analyses. With recent advances in LBA technologies, it is conceivable that singlet analysis is possible. We retrospectively evaluated singlet analysis using Gyrolab data. Relative precision of duplicates compared to singlets(More)
BACKGROUND Method developers of plate-based ligand-binding assays (LBAs) often face challenges establishing selectivity, specificity and range of quantitation to meet the needs of a particular study. Case studies are presented to compare different ligand-binding immunoassay platforms (plate-based vs microfluidic system) in method development to support(More)
To assess the application of succinimidyl iodobenzoate (SIB) iodination method in labeling biotherapeutics to study their pharmacokinetics (PK) and biodistribution. An IgG molecule (protein-01) and a 40 KDa protein (protein-02) were evaluated. Pharmacokinetics (PK) and biodistribution of the radiolabeled IgG (125I-protein-01) in mice compared parameters(More)
Response surface methods (RSM) combined with a steepest ascent approach is a powerful technique to optimize assay performance. In this case, a ligand-binding assay (LBA) to quantitate a peptide biotherapeutic was optimized for improved sensitivity using this technique. Conditions were elucidated to enable pg/mL quantitation of the peptide in human plasma(More)
The 2014 8th Workshop on Recent Issues in Bioanalysis (8th WRIB), a 5-day full immersion in the evolving field of bioanalysis, took place in Universal City, California, USA. Close to 500 professionals from pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations and regulatory agencies worldwide convened to share, review, discuss and(More)
As part of the GBC (Global Bioanalysis Consortium), the L3 assay format team has focused on reviewing common platforms used to support ligand binding assays in the detection of biotherapeutics. The following review is an overview of discussions and presentations from around the globe with a group of experts from different companies to allow an international(More)
