How to Improve Efficiency in Biopharmaceutical Process Development 

Process development landscape is changing and facing new challenges. Nowadays, time to clinic and time to market are becoming more important than ever for developers and manufacturers of biopharmaceuticals.   Although historically, the development timeline for a pharmaceutical drug has been 8 to 10 years, today with the use of expedited programs, such as fast track approval and breakthrough drug designation, has made the development time shrink.   In this article, we will speak about some in...

Plasmid DNA Production for Cell and Gene Therapy – Q&A

In cell and gene therapy manufacturing, high-quality plasmid DNA is a key component. The demand of high-quality plasmid DNA has increased and this has led to the need to optimize the manufacturing and the quality required for use in the manufacture of therapeutics. However, the plasmid DNA (pDNA) manufacturing faces several challenges like: Its large size. The shear sensitivity. The high viscosity. The similarities between the pDNA and the impurities present during manufacturing. This makes impo...

Manufacturing Strategies for mRNA Vaccines and Therapeutics

The swift delivery of the world’s first COVID-19 vaccine put a big spotlight on the promise of mRNA technology. mRNA technology uses non-viral systems and offers a great deal of versatility. Administration of an mRNA into the cytosol of a cell can induce the production of a target protein which can function as an antigen to trigger an immune response for vaccination purposes, replace a defective protein or activate an anti-tumor response. In this article, we will discuss the mRNA manufacturing...

Consider cGMP to Minimize the Risks and Accelerate Your Development Milestones

Current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) are central to drug manufacturing, helping to produce chemicals and other raw materials in accordance with specific controls and quality systems. The development of pharma and biopharma products requires materials as well as the expertise on how to use them. Despite what cGMP stand for in terms of drug quality and consistency, studies indicate that only half of biopharmaceutical developers use cGMP chemicals in early-stage clinical trials. In this arti...

Accelerating mAb Development

Monoclonal antibody biotherapeutics account for roughly one-fifth of FDA new drug approvals every year, with cancer treatments accounting for the majority of them. Beside the full-length monoclonal antibodies, researchers are also looking at next-generation antibody products, including antibody drug conjugates (ADCs), antibody fragments, antibody-like proteins, engineered antibodies and others. Moreover, there is also a marked focus on the biosimilar market, which is currently worth roughly $4.3...
