PURPOSE: Access to trastuzumab, a valuable anti-cancer treatment, can be limited by cost. The primary aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the PK profiles of CT-P6, a biosimilar of trastuzumab, and US-licensed reference trastuzumab (Herceptin®) in healthy subjects. Secondary study aims included comparison of the safety and immunogenicity of CT-P6 and reference trastuzumab in these subjects. METHODS: We performed a single-dose, randomised, double-blind, parallel group study (NCT02665637) comparing CT-P6 with reference trastuzumab (6 mg/kg, 90 min intravenous infusion) in 70 healthy adult males...

Charge heterogeneity is often evaluated during biosimilar development as it is a universal feature of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). A common approach in the industry is to develop a biosimilar product with a similar overall charge profile as the reference product. However, uncertainty remains with this approach as the same charge profile in two different products may be caused by different mechanisms. In this work, we present a comprehensive investigation of the charge variants of a therapeutic monoclonal antibody and its biosimilar candidate...

TNF-α inhibitor (TNFi) therapies have transformed the treatment of several rheumatic musculoskeletal diseases. However, the majority of TNFi's are immunogenic and consequent anti-drug antibodies formation can impact on both treatment efficacy and safety. Several controversies exist in the area of immunogenicity of TNFis and drug safety. While anti-drug antibodies to TNFis have been described in association with infusion reactions; serious adverse events (AEs) such as thromboembolic events, lupus-like syndrome, paradoxical AEs, for example, vasculitis-like events and other autoimmune manifestations have also been reported...

Plants have attracted attention as bio-drug production platforms because of their economical and safety benefits. The preliminary efficacy of ZMapp, a cocktail of antibodies produced in N. benthamiana (Nicotiana benthamiana L.), suggested plants may serve as a platform for antibody production. However, because the amino acid sequences of the Fab fragment are diverse and differences in post-transcriptional processes between animals and plants remain to be elucidated, it is necessary to confirm functional equivalence of plant-produced antibodies to the original antibody...

There are no  dose-finding trials available for rituximab that could guide dosing in non-malignant diseases. We hypothesized that currently used doses (≥375 mg/m2) exceed several hundred-fold the half-maximal effective dose, which is most sensitive for detecting putative differences between biosimilars and important for dose finding. In an open label, exploratory trial healthy volunteers received single infusions of rituximab at doses of 0.1, 0.3 or 1.0 mg/m2. Subsequently, in a double-blind, randomized trial healthy volunteers received single infusions of two rituximab products at doses of 0...

Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) have established themselves as the leading biopharmaceutical therapeutic modality. The establishment of robust manufacturing platforms are key for antibody drug discovery efforts to seamlessly translate into clinical and commercial successes. Several drivers are influencing the design of mAb manufacturing processes. The advent of biosimilars is driving a desire to achieve lower cost of goods and globalize biologics manufacturing. High titers are now routinely achieved for mAbs in mammalian cell culture...

Infliximab is a monoclonal antibody widely used for the treatment of inflammatory diseases. Over the past few years, many studies have assessed that monoclonal antibodies are prone to aggregation under stress conditions. The aim of this study was to investigate the stability of solutions of an infliximab biosimilar (Inflectra®) at different concentrations (0.4, 2 and 10 mg/mL). These solutions were separately submitted to three temperature conditions that are likely to happen during the drug dispensing system: -20 °C, 5 °C and 25 °C...

Biopharmaceuticals are large protein based drugs which are heterogeneous by nature due to post translational modifications resulting from cellular production, processing and storage. Changes in the abundance of different variants over time are inherent to biopharmaceuticals due to their sensitivity to subtle process differences and the necessity for regular manufacturing changes. Product variability must thus be carefully controlled to ensure that it does not result in changes in safety or efficacy. Areas Covered: The focus of this manuscript is to provide improved understanding of the science and strategies used to maintain the quality and clinical performance of biopharmaceuticals, including biosimilars, throughout their lifecycle...

The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) biosimilar focus group on nonclinical and clinical assays has developed this manuscript to guide the industry on best practices and testing strategies when developing neutralizing antibody (NAb) assays for biosimilar programs. The immunogenicity assessment to biosimilar and originator drug products is one of the key aspects of clinical programs for biosimilars to demonstrate biosimilarity. Establishing that there are no clinically meaningful differences in immune response between a proposed product and the originator product is a key element in the demonstration of biosimilarity...

Biologic agents are currently the fastest emerging segment of drug expenditure. Unlike chemically synthesized small-molecule drugs, biologics are more complex, medicinal products produced by a living organism. They have become part of the standard of care in the treatment of a large variety of diseases, such as growth disorders, autoimmune diseases, cancer, cardiovascular illnesses, hemophilia, and rare genetic conditions, to name a few. Biosimilars, which are copies of biologics that are highly similar, were introduced in the market with an aim to offer efficacy that is not clinically different from the originator or reference product, at lower prices...

BACKGROUND: Psoriasis vulgaris is a chronic, inflammatory skin disease characterized by a dysregulated immune response and it is associated with substantial systemic comorbidities. Biological drugs like tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors can ameliorate the disease but are expensive. Biosimilar drugs have the same amino acid sequence as the originator, but differences in manufacturing can affect biological activity, efficacy and tolerability. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to explore potential differences in intracellular phosphorylation of signaling molecules in peripheral blood cells from TNF inhibitor infliximab treated psoriasis patients compared to healthy controls, and to investigate if the phosphorylation pattern was influenced by switching from originator infliximab to biosimilar CT-P13...
