Full title: Technologies and Platform Approach for Optimizing Downstream Purification of Viral Vectors
The promising success stories and advancement of viral vector-based gene therapy are emblematic of the future of Gene therapy. With the promising future, we still see multiple setbacks and technological challenges towards manufacturing and the higher cost of drug products, which makes it clear that technological challenges must still be overcome, working together with the Gene Therapy industry.
The viral vector production and purification processes are widely divided through the use of different technologies and tools available across industries. Therefore, a platform approach will be beneficial for harmonizing production processes for multiple viral vectors, which will help in optimized manufacturing efforts, thus reducing the cost of goods for manufacturing.
Adeno-associated virus (AAV) and Lentivirus (LV) are two major viral vectors being used for in-vivo and ex-vivo gene therapies respectively, which have unique manufacturing challenges of their own. Based on the multiple serotypes of AAV or multiple pseudo-typing strategies for Lentivirus, the process development is challenging. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of technologies available for the production and downstream purification of AAV & LV vectors and how utilizing the platform approach can help in optimization and reducing the cost of manufacturing.
