Large-molecule biotherapeutics are forming an increasingly large percentage of emerging pharmaceutical pipelines. These molecules present specific challenges to the bioanalysts charged with measuring in vivo concentrations of the biotherapeutic. The challenges are typically met using ligand-binding assays in support of pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic and(More)
A liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method has been developed and validated for a PEGylated adnectin therapeutic protein in cynomolgus monkey plasma. The validated method was performed using protein precipitation coupled with trypsin digestion, followed by LC-MS/MS detection of a surrogate peptide generated from the PEGylated(More)
Biological therapeutics can induce an undesirable immune response resulting in the formation of anti-drug antibodies (ADA), including neutralizing antibodies (NAbs). Functional (usually cell-based) NAb assays are preferred to determine NAb presence in patient serum, but are often subject to interferences from numerous serum factors, such as growth factors(More)
Understanding the properties of protein-based therapeutics is a common goal of biologists and physicians. Technical barriers in the direct observation of small proteins or therapeutic agents can limit our knowledge of how they function in solution and in the body. Electron microscopy (EM) imaging performed in a liquid environment permits us to peer into the(More)
BACKGROUND FGF21-AdPKE is a fusion protein and functionally inactivated in vivo by cleavage around the C-terminus. It is important to quantify the intact active protein in serum. RESULTS & DISCUSSION Taking advantage of a uniquely acid-labile aspartyl-prolyl amide bond, we developed an acid hydrolysis procedure based on heating FGF21-AdPKE in dilute(More)
Programmed death-1 (PD-1) protein is a co-inhibitory receptor which negatively regulates immune cell activation and permits tumors to evade normal immune defense. Anti-PD-1 antibodies have been shown to restore immune cell activation and effector function—an exciting breakthrough in cancer immunotherapy. Recent reports have documented a soluble form of PD-1(More)
The bioanalytical strategy for monoclonal antibody therapeutics, intended for multiple oncology indications, includes multiple integrated measurements of pharmacologically relevant therapeutics from discovery through development. Three ligand binding assays were cohesively developed and validated, as applicable, using the Gyrolab microfluidic system for the(More)
