  • Challenges and Risks in Development and Manufacture of Covid 19 Vaccines Recorded: Jun 30 2020 121 mins
    Rajesh K. Gupta, Ph.D. Biologics Quality & Regulatory Consultants, LLC, North Potomac
    Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a terrifying illness with high morbidity and mortality throughout the world and with devastating effects on businesses, economies, livelihood of individuals and producing depression/fear among populations due to prolonged lock downs. The only way to control the disease appears to be by developing herd immunity, either by infection or by universal vaccination. Achieving herd immunity by infection seems horrific with a significant burden on healthcare systems and sacrificing vulnerable population, including older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer. Achieving herd immunity through vaccination will take at least several months to years after development of a safe and effective vaccine. Typically, it takes a decade or more to develop a vaccine. Scientists and vaccinologists from academia, industry and Government organizations are enthusiastically working on more than 100 vaccine candidates to develop a safe and effective vaccine. There are numerous scientific, technical, manufacturing, and regulatory challenges and risks in developing vaccines in general, particularly under a fast timeline. This Webinar will go over the challenges and risks in developing Coronavirus vaccines with a view to identifying these for resolution and mitigation along with development of the vaccines.

    1) How to access the final version of the Biophorum Extractable Testing recommendation and example reporting template;

    2) “Data Sharing Rules of the Road” recommendations for simplifying access to the reports
    3 ) Where are the extractable data report flexibilities when using BEDS templates?

    To facilitate a harmonized extractable data reporting to end users, the presenters will introduce the newly designed BioPhorum Extractable Data Summary (BEDS) template. Some levels of details with regards to what specific information or format of templates are compulsory and what are flexible for supplier to tailor to their own preferences will be detailed during the webinar. How end users can gain access to these extractable summary reports from suppliers, including subsuppliers, will be addressed.

    Additionally, several FAQs questions will be presented to clarify some common questions. The webinars will end with 30 minutes of a panel discussion for participants to seek clarify of all presented information.
  • Advanced Raman Spectroscopy Beyond In-Process Glucose Control of Commercial... Recorded: Jun 3 2020 90 mins
    Dan Hill, Manufacturing Scientist at Biogen and Maryann Cuellar, Life Science Product Manager at Kaiser Optical Systems, Inc.
    The use of in-line Raman spectroscopy as an in-line process analytical technology (PAT), in the biotechnology industry, has matured over the past decade from a technology with promise to a standard tool for real-time, continuous monitoring of cell culture processes. There is an ever-growing body of work demonstrating successful application from metabolite and product quality monitoring to process control in both process development and GMP manufacturing environments. This is due, in part, to advances in technology robustness, user- and integration-interfaces, improved sensitivity, and fluorescence rejection. Organizations are now faced with the difficult task of best leveraging these tools and extracting the most value from them. Thus, defining and executing Raman program strategy is critical to the technology’s long-term success and sustainability.

    This presentation will describe Biogen’s past efforts and strategic direction as it relates to in-line Raman spectroscopy for cell culture operations and how we intend to leverage its capability beyond metabolite monitoring and glucose feedback control to become an essential element of our Advanced Process Control efforts.

    Presented by Danny Chou, President and Founder at Compassion BioSolution, LLC
    Followed by an industry perspective presented by Mark Bumiller, Technology Manager at Entegris.

    In the past decade, we have witnessed the arrival of a large number of analytical technologies that are useful for characterizing sub-visible particles in protein therapeutics. Even with the diverse tools that are available today, there are still important gaps that have not been filled but yet have a significant role in our ability to fully analyze particles for either product characterization or formulation development purpose. The goal of this presentation is to highlight some of these gaps and share the opportunities that may be captured by new tools that are on the horizon. Finally, the speaker will elaborate on how simultaneous monitoring of sub-micron and micron-sized particles can assist biopharmaceutical formulation development and help fulfill current and future regulatory requirements.”

    FULL TITLE: Assessing the Risk of Interaction Between Extractables and Leachable and Therapeutic Proteins

    Presented by Andrew Teasdale, Senior Principal Scientist Impurity management and External Advocacy at AstraZeneca

    Biologics and Peptides often present their own challenges in respect to leachables. They are typically administered parenterally and therefore there is a high risk of interaction between dosage form and packaging / administration system. They are often low dose and sensitive to structural modifications, this can impact Safety (immunogenicity), Quality (instability, aggregation) and Efficacy (loss of potency). This webinar will examine the potential risk factors through case study examples including reactive leachables, the impact of sterilisation and adverse events and their route cause. It will conclude by looking at opportunities to look predictively at potential issues and how this can be incorporated into product design

  • Affinity Chromatography for Vaccines Purification Recorded: May 12 2020 46 mins
    Mikkel Nissum, Vaccine R&D Quality Site Lead at GSK Vaccines
    Presented by Mikkel Nissum, Vaccine R&D Quality Site Lead at GSK Vaccines

    Only clean drinking water rivals vaccination in its ability to save lives. Yet, development and manufacturing of vaccines remain challenging. Vaccines comprise a heterogeneous variety of targets. Each target requires a dedicated development and manufacturing process adding to the timelines for getting new vaccines to the patient and to ensure a reliable supply. For the downstream processing part, often the process is composed of an optimized set of up to three chromatographic steps to provide the final desired quality of the target. On top of the long development time required to develop such a multi-step process, at times, the end result may not be satisfactory, in particular regarding purity of the target.
    In order to overcome this downstream processing challenge, we embarked on establishing a purification platform based on affinity purification. The main advantages of such a platform for vaccine manufacturing would be:
    1)By applying a positive selection principle for chromatography, the number of chromatographic steps may be reduced to just one step
    2)Establishing a platform would require minimal process changes from one target to another
    3)Downstream processing would become predicable in terms of development time and costs
    The journey of establishing the affinity purification platform focusing on main challenges and key results will be presented in the Webinar.

    Permitted Daily Exposure (PDE) has origin in ICH Q3C: Impurities – Guideline for Residual Solvents. This webinar will discuss the principles and methods of applying PDEs to extractactables and leachables (E&L) impurities in pharmaceutical products. We will review the regulatory advice on the DO’s and DON’Ts. Then we will review the current toxicology risk assessment practice on data gathering, literature synthesis and selection of the critical studies with robust toxicity endpoints. We will show how the toxicity endpoints are transformed into chemical-specific PDE values with modifying factors. We will highlight the importance of clinical relevance to further refine the PDE values. For a case study, we will share an extraction study of a polyolefin bag for use with a lyophilized product. We will examine the risk matrix per USP Assessment of drug product leachables associated with pharmaceutical packaging/delivery systems. The toxicology assessment of the extractables profile of the bag will illustrate the derivation of chemical-specific PDEs, as well as the refinement by taking clinical relevance into consideration.

    Presented by Tom Van Den Kerkhof Scientist at Johnson & Johnson
    Followed by Sebastian Sowinski, Key Account Manager in the Spectroscopy business unit at Sentronic in Dresden

    Johnson & Johnson has invested in three different continuous manufacturing lines, where PAT applications are applied to determine the uniformity of the final blend and the core tablets. Two CM lines have been implemented to accomplish the high-volume demand of two commercial products, while a third CM multi-purpose line, allowing to perform wet-granulation, roller compaction or direct compression, has been implemented in the R&D facility for the development of new drug products. In this presentation, the PAT control strategy currently applied for the commercial products as well as the one applied for new products is presented. Furthermore, the use of the generated PAT data to release the final batch is presented for a direct compression commercial product. For this commercial product, the PAT analysis performed on the core tablets by NIR spectroscopy are used to replace the final product testing in the laboratory for the release testing of assay, content uniformity and dissolution.

    Presented by Olav Lyngberg, PhD, Sr. Scientific Fellow, Advanced Technology, Technical Operations at Janssen Pharmaceuticals and

    The presentation will share the journey that Janssen is taking as it progresses its strategy on Advanced Process Control (APC). Within Janssen we aspire to improve our Manufacturing Technology Organization’s performance on key metrics such as cost of goods, on time and in full product delivery, production cycle time, and right first-time process performance. Improving these metrics require a comprehensive technology strategy that can address not just one but all the key metrics together. The strategy that Janssen is pursuing has three pillars. 1: process intensification, 2: modular and flexible designs, and 3: process digitalization and advanced process control. Each pillar contributes differently to the key metrics and in aggregate and when achieved together they make it possible to reach all the goals.

    Full Title: In Situ High Speed NIR Imaging to Monitor Form Change and Drug Release from Rapidly Disintegrating Tablets
    Presented by Patrick Wray, Senior Research Investigator at Bristol-Myers Squibb

    Spectroscopic imaging is a powerful chemically specific and spatially resolved approach which can be used to effectively monitor tablet dissolution. This work employs Raman mapping and Near Infrared (NIR) chemical imaging to examine drug release from model tablet formulations as complementary technologies. Modern pushbroom type NIR imaging systems allow extremely fast acquisition of chemical images. Consequently this allows us to study the chemical and physical changes which occur during drug release from rapidly disintegrating formulations.
    A custom designed flow through cell is used to carry out the tablet dissolutions in such a way that the sample is presented to the optics of the chemical imaging system being used. The cell is compatible for use with NIR, Raman and Mid IR spectrometers.
    Two types or formulations will be presented: Rapidly disintegrating formulations with varying amounts of super disintegrant and tablets containing a model drug exhibiting fast onset of disproportionation in pH neutral conditions.

    Followed by Cutting-edge Raman Imaging for New Advances in Pharmaceutics
    Presented by Dr. Miriam Böhmler, Senior Applications Scientist at WITec GmbH

    Confocal Raman imaging microscopy is a non-destructive chemical characterization method based on an energy shift in excitation light scattered by molecules or crystal lattices. This is known as the Raman effect and it can be detected by a spectrometer as a Raman peak within a Raman spectrum, which can serve as a “fingerprint” for individual materials in the sample.
