Availability: Immediately available upon ordering.

Description: Online training with immediate access upon enrollment.

This course addresses characteristic issues influencing the registration of medicinal products based on monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), for use in humans. Regulatory requirements for the registration of biological medicinal products, such as those based on mAbs, differ in certain respects from those for small-molecule products. This is because of the distinct characteristics of biologics, such as complex structure and susceptibility to variation during manufacture.

In this course, we focus on distinctive issues in the production and testing of mAbs, in the context of relevant regulatory guidance. We discuss manufacturing quality, nonclinical, and clinical issues. We address aspects specific to radiolabelled mAbs. Finally, we identify the pathways for applications to conduct clinical trials and to market mAb-based products in Europe and the USA.

Procedures for making regulatory submissions for monoclonal antibodies are discussed, such as the marketing authorization application through the CP (Centralized Procedure) in Europe, and by a BLA (Biologics License Application) in the USA. Orphan drug status and its effect on clinical design are also covered. The course addresses the impact of recent developments in production techniques on the regulatory landscape, and will serve as a good source of reference all developments in the future and their practical consequences.

Once all course requirements have been satisfied, a certificate of completion is immediately available. Course takers can attempt the final assessment any number of times, as needed in order to achieve a passing grade.

COURSE OUTLINE:


Overview – An outline of the module’s scope and objectives, and notes on terminology.


Quality issues – Quality information requirements for the registration of mAb-based products focus on characterization and specifications in areas such as identity, purity, and potency. Information must be provided on the origin and history of the starting materials, and the manufacturing process and its validation must be thoroughly described. Measures taken and validated to control impurities and to clear viruses and other contaminants need to be set out.


Nonclinical issues – Like other drugs, mAb-based products must undergo laboratory and animal testing to define their pharmacological and toxicological effects before they can be studied in humans. The regulatory framework for nonclinical testing of mAb-based products is essentially similar to that for non-biological drugs. Nevertheless, mAbs present special issues, requiring an adaptable, ad hoc scientific approach to nonclinical testing. In this session, we discuss issues such as studies of cross-reactivity with human tissues, choice of species for nonclinical studies, exposure level, and recipient antibody responses.


Clinical issues – MAbs present issues for clinical development and use, such as assessment of immunogenicity, which typically do not arise for small-molecule medicinal products. This session addresses such characteristic issues.


Radiolabelled mAbs – Monoclonal antibodies may form the basis of radiopharmaceuticals for in-vivo diagnostic use or for radiotherapy. In this session we address characteristics of radiolabelled mAbs.


Regulatory submissions – In this session, we identify the pathways for applications to conduct clinical trials and to market a mAb-based product in Europe and the USA, along with relevant legal statutes, regulations, and regulatory guidance.


Assessment – Multiple-choice mastery assessment.
