Day 2: Friday, 12 April 2019
CASE STUDY: Interactions of Leachables with Biopharmaceuticals: Combined In-Silico and Experimental Model to Monitor the Potential Impact on Quality and Safety of Therapeutic Proteins.
  • The potential effect of Leachables on the quality and the efficacy of Biopharmaceuticals by chemically modifying the therapeutic protein/peptide product.
  • Impact on the patient’s safety including immunogenicity (as a secondary safety effect of those interactions).
  • How to assess the reactivity of potential leachables
    • Nelson REACT: an in-silico reactivity approach to predict if any of the observed extractables could lead to a chemical interaction.
    • Chemical reactivity tests to actually screen for residual chemical reactivity as predicted by Nelson REACT.
