Today, the assessment of immunogenicity is integral in nonclinical and clinical testing of new biotherapeutics and biosimilars. A key component in the risk-based evaluation of immunogenicity involves the detection and characterization of anti-drug antibodies (ADA). Over the past couple of decades, much progress has been made in standardizing the generalized approach for ADA testing with a three-tiered testing paradigm involving screening, confirmation, and quasi-quantitative titer assessment representing the typical harmonized scheme...

How to study nanoparticle-cell interactions is the key question that puzzles researchers in the fields of nanomedicine as well as in nanotoxicology. In nanotoxicology, the amount of nanoparticles internalized by the cells or bound to the external surfaces of cells determines the toxic profile of those particles. In medical applications, cellular uptake and binding of medically effective nanoparticles decides their efficacy. Despite the importance of understanding the extent and mode of nanoparticle-cell interactions, these processes are underinvestigated, mainly due to the lack of suitable user-friendly methodologies...

BACKGROUND: Luciferases, enzymes that catalyze bioluminescent reactions in different organisms, have been extensively used for bioanalytical purposes. The most well studied bioluminescent system is that of firefly and other beetles, which depends on a luciferase, a benzothiazolic luciferin and ATP, and it is being widely used as a bioanalytical reagent to quantify ATP. Protein kinases are proteins that modify other proteins by transferring phosphate groups from a nucleoside triphosphate, usually ATP...

Laboratory safety requires protecting personnel from chemical exposures. Working with stock solutions of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/PCDFs) in routine analysis of feed and food with bioanalytical or physicochemical methods raises some concerns. Since PCDD/PCDFs are considered as possibly acutely toxic, the potential risks were evaluated to determine whether supervision of their use is necessary. Based on LD50-data for oral or dermal intake, hazard classification of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) as a substance (category 1) and in commercially available TCDD standard solutions (category 4) is different...

Many hemolytic anemias results in major metabolic abnormalities: two common metabolite abnormalities include increased levels of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG) and decreased levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). To better monitor the concentration changes of these metabolites, the development of a reliable LC-MS/MS method to quantitatively profile the concentrations of 2, 3-DPG and ATP in whole blood is essential to understand the effects of investigational therapeutics. Accurate quantification of both compounds imposes great challenges to bioanalytical scientists due to their polar, ionic and endogenous nature...

Rapid detection and identification of microorganisms is a challenging and important aspect in a wide range offields, from medical to industrial, affecting human lives. Unfortunately, classical methods of microorganism identification are based on time-consuming and labor-intensive approaches. Screening techniques require the rapid and cheap grouping of bacterial isolates; however, modern bioanalytics demand comprehensive bacterial studies at a molecular level. Modern approaches for the rapid identification of bacteria use molecular techniques, such as 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequencing based on polymerase chain reaction or electromigration, especially capillary zone electrophoresis and capillary isoelectric focusing...

The regulatory guidances on metabolites in safety testing (MIST) by US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) describe the necessity to assess exposures of circulating metabolites in humans at steady state relative to exposures achieved in nonclinical safety studies prior to the initiation of large scale clinical trials. This comparison can be accomplished by measuring metabolite concentrations in animals and humans with validated bioanalytical methods. However, bioanalysis of metabolites in multiple species and multiple studies is resource intensive and may impact the timelines of clinical studies...

The following work describes a combined enzymatic and bioanalytical method that permits absolute quantitation of metabolites in biological samples without the requirement for reference metabolite standards. This technique was exemplified using a radio (14C) isotopologue and a stable (13C6) isotopologue of acetaminophen as substrates for in vitro biosynthesis of the corresponding radio and stable isotope labeled metabolites, namely, 14C- and 13C6- glucuronides and sulfates. By supplanting the use of authentic metabolite standards, traditionally used to calibrate 13C6-metabolites via liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS), 13C6-metabolites were radiocalibrated by their 14C-isotopologues via liquid chromatography coupled with radioactivity detection and mass spectrometry (LC-RAD/MS)...

Poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation (PARylation), i.e., the formation of the nucleic acid-like biopolymer poly(ADP-ribose) (PAR), is an essential posttranslational modification carried out by poly(ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARPs). While PAR levels are low under physiological conditions, they can transiently increase more than 100-fold upon induction of genotoxic stress. The accurate quantitation of cellular PAR with high sensitivity is of critical importance to understand the role of PARylation in cellular physiology and pathophysiology and to determine the pharmacodynamic efficiencies of clinically relevant PARP inhibitors, which represent a novel class of promising chemotherapeutics...
