Trends in Physical Properties of Drugs Trends in Physical Properties of Drugs
April 22, 2014 |
The physical properties of drugs influence all aspects of their discovery, development, formulation, and administration. They are key to efficacy, effective assays, and in vivo delivery. This course will discuss latest trends and state-of-the art of prediction and measurement of key properties. Properties important for enhanced efficacy, delivery, and formulation pKa, tautomerism, crystallization, others Computational prediction: What works - what doesn’t Experimental best practices
PK/PD Bioanalysis PK/PD Bioanalysis
October 12, 2012 |
Novel constructs, such as anti-drug conjugates (ADCs) and bispecific antibodies, now exist as promising candidates in biotherapeutic pipelines. With aggressive timelines and contraction in the biopharma labor force, assay development can pose challenges beyond typical assays for pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. Several bioanalytical techniques can be employed to measure these novel constructs. This short course will cover assay technologies to measure ADCs and bi-specific antibody therapeutics for pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics presented by various biopharma scientists.
Clinical Assay Development Clinical Assay Development
September 19, 2012 |
Presentations selected from the Clinical Assay Development workshop at the Fourth Annual ADAPT Congress 2012 discuss how discovery and research assays are increasingly being converted into clinically useful assays that are used in clinical trials to improve patient outcome and to support drug development. Regulatory issues and the dedication of resources to develop assays are addressed, as well as strategies to overcome the challenges of using commercial assays on clinical samples; analytical validation studies to determine clinical utility; and the benefits of working with a diagnostics organization with both experienced IVD manufacturing and an extensive CLIA laboratory infrastructure.
