UNLABELLED Essentials ADAMTS-13-deficiency is a cause of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). Preclinical safety of recombinant human ADAMTS-13 (BAX930) was shown in animal models. Preclinical efficacy of BAX930 was shown in a mouse model of TTP. BAX930 showed advantageous efficacy over fresh frozen plasma, the current standard of care. Click to hear(More)
Neutralizing antibodies against factor VIII (FVIII) remain the major complication in the replacement therapy of hemophilia A patients. To better understand the evolution of these antibodies it is important to generate comprehensive datasets which include both neutralizing and nonneutralizing antibodies, their isotypes, and IgG subclasses. We developed(More)
Biotechnology derived therapeutics may induce an unwanted immune response leading to the formation of anti-drug antibodies (ADA). As a result the efficacy and safety of the therapeutic protein could be impaired. Neutralizing antibodies may, for example, affect pharmacokinetics of the therapeutic protein or induce autoimmunity. Therefore a drug induced(More)
Nonacog gamma is a new recombinant factor IX to treat factor IX deficiency. It is indicated for control of bleeding episodes, perioperative management and routine prophylaxis to prevent or reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes in adults and children with hemophilia B. Nonacog gamma was first approved in the USA in June 2013 under the trade name RIXUBIS(More)
Recently, we reported that distinct immunoglobulin (Ig) isotypes and IgG subclasses of factor VIII (FVIII)-specific antibodies are found in different cohorts of patients with hemophilia A and in healthy individuals. Prompted by these findings, we further investigated the distinguishing properties among the different populations of FVIII-specific antibodies.(More)
Baxter has developed a new recombinant factor IX (rFIX) drug product (BAX326) for treating patients with hemophilia B, or congenital FIX deficiency. An extensive preclinical program evaluated the pharmacokinetics, efficacy, and safety of BAX326 in different species. The efficacy of BAX326 was tested in three mouse models of primary pharmacodynamics:(More)
Detecting and characterizing of anti-drug antibodies (ADA) against a protein therapeutic are crucially important to monitor the unwanted immune response. Usually a multi-tiered approach that initially rapidly screens for positive samples that are subsequently confirmed in a separate assay is employed for testing of patient samples for ADA activity. In this(More)
Recent findings demonstrated anti-PEG antibody formation in some healthy individuals and patients who have not received PEGylated biotherapeutics. Some of these findings evoked criticism because of shortcomings in the antibody assays used. To better understand this topic, we established robust antibody analytics and screened two cohorts of healthy(More)
Biotechnology-derived therapeutics may induce an unwanted immune response leading to the formation of anti-drug antibodies (ADAs) which can result in altered efficacy and safety of the therapeutic protein. Anti-drug antibodies may, for example, affect pharmacokinetics of the therapeutic protein or induce autoimmunity. It is therefore crucial to have assays(More)
