PURPOSE With this publication a subcommittee of the AAPS Ligand Binding Assay Bioanalytical Focus Group (LBABFG) makes recommendations for the development, validation, and implementation of ligand binding assays (LBAs) that are intended to support pharmacokinetic and toxicokinetic assessments of macromolecules. METHODS This subcommittee was comprised of(More)
Angiopoietin-2 (Ang2) exhibits broad expression in the remodeling vasculature of human tumors but very limited expression in normal tissues, making it an attractive candidate target for antiangiogenic cancer therapy. To investigate the functional consequences of blocking Ang2 activity, we generated antibodies and peptide-Fc fusion proteins that potently and(More)
The Third American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists/US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Bioanalytical Workshop, which was held May 1 and 2, 2006, in Arlington, VA, addressed bioanalytical assays that are being used for the quantification of therapeutic candidates in support of pharmacokinetic evaluations. One of the main goals of this workshop was(More)
The knowledge of in vivo biotransformation (e.g., proteolysis) of protein therapeutic candidates reveals structural liabilities that impact stability. This information aids the development and confirmation of ligand-binding assays with the required specificity for bioactive moieties (including intact molecule and metabolites) for appropriate PK profiling.(More)
In September 2013, the FDA released a draft revision of the Bioanalytical Method Validation (BMV) Guidance, which included a number of changes to the expectations for bioanalysis, most notably the inclusion of biomarker assays and data. To provide a forum for an open, inclusive discussion of the revised draft BMV Guidance, the AAPS and FDA once again(More)
The development and validation of ligand binding assays used in the support of pharmacokinetic studies has been the focus of various workshops and publications in recent years, all in an effort to establish a guidance document for standardization of these bioanalytical methods. This summary report of the workshop from 2003 focuses on the issues discussed in(More)
Measurement of the total target ligand can help to provide pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) informations. However, the presence of monocloncal antibody therapeutics (ThAs) interferes with ELISA determinations of the total target proteins. The interferences can cause over- or under-estimation of the target protein analysis. The nature of(More)
A case study of experimental and statistical approaches for cross-validating and examining the equivalence of two ligand binding assay (LBA) methods that were employed in pharmacokinetic (PK) studies is presented. The impact of changes in methodology based on the intended use of the methods was assessed. The cross-validation processes included an(More)
Over 400 professionals representing pharmaceutical companies, CROs, and multiple regulatory agencies participated in the 6th Workshop on Recent Issues in Bioanalysis (WRIB). Like the previous sessions, this event was in the format of a practical, focused, highly interactive and informative workshop aiming for high-quality, improved regulatory compliance and(More)
The 5th Workshop on Recent Issues in Bioanalysis (WRIB) was organized by the Calibration and Validation Group as a 2-day full immersion workshop for pharmaceutical companies, CROs and regulatory agencies to discuss, review, share perspectives, provide potential solutions and agree upon a consistent approach to recent issues in the bioanalysis of both small(More)
