Biomarker Challenges in Biosimilar Drug Development, New Life Science Webinar Hosted by Xtalks
Date:10/29/2013

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

Biologics have transformed the way several diseases have been traditionally treated and managed over the past several years. Therapeutic antibodies are a class of biologics that has been exceptionally effective in the treatment of life threatening diseases such as cancer and inflammatory diseases.

As patents and exclusivity on several originator biologics are expiring, the industry has been moving in to generate biosimilars. Biosimilars are products that are highly similar to the originator molecules with no clinically meaningful differences in safety, purity and potency.

Owing to the complexity of biological molecules and the variability of sophisticated modern processes by which they are generated, it is extremely difficult to generate fully identical biosimilars. Subtle structural and functional differences can lead to potentially serious consequences when administered into the diseased host. Regulatory agencies require the generation of physicochemical, structural and functional data on candidate biosimilars prior to approval for use in human subjects. Thus, successful development of biosimilars requires the demonstration of pharmacological similarity with the originator biologics.

This webinar focuses on Covance's experience with in vitro assays to demonstrate pharmacological similarity between biologics and biosimilars.

A Q&A with the audience will follow the main presentation.
