Continuous improvement in bioanalytical method development is desired in order to ensure the quality of the data and to better support pharmacokinetic (PK) and safety studies of biotherapeutics. One area that has been getting increasing attention recently is in the assessment of “free” and “total” analyte and the impact of the assay format on those(More)
For therapeutic monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against soluble ligands, the free ligand level can, theoretically, be used as a surrogate for efficacy. However, it can be extremely challenging technically to measure free ligand level in the presence of an excessive amount of antibody–ligand complex. The interplay among such mAbs, ligands, and the downstream(More)
Study the disposition and target-neutralization capability of an anti-interleukin-6 (IL-6) monoclonal antibody (mAb) at the joint in a mouse collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) model. A mechanistic pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic study was conducted in a mouse CIA model using CNTO 345, a rat anti-mouse IL-6 mAb, as model compound. The drug, total/free IL-6(More)
A parallel study design with a large number of subjects has been a typical path for pharmacokinetic (PK) biocomparability assessment of biotherapeutics with long half-lives and immunogenic propensity, for example, monoclonal antibodies (mAb). A recently published innovative bioanalytical method that can quantify mAb produced from two different cell lines in(More)
