PK and Anti-Drug Antibody Immunoassays Using Covalent Binding Plates - Case Studies
Types of ELISA 1.Noncompetitive binding assay or Sandwich method 1)Antigen measuring system [Plate wells coated with antibodies ; Enzyme labelled antibodies] 2)Antibody measuring system [Plate wells coated with antigens ; Enzyme labelled anti- antibodies] 2.Competitive binding assay [Plate wells coated with antibodies ; Enzyme labelled antigens]
Noncompetitive or Sandwich Assay Antibody measuring system – Plate wells coated with suitable antigen – Add sample containing the antibody – Incubate: till antigen antibody reaction is complete – Wash remove unbound antibody – Add Anti-antibody labelled with Enzyme – Incubate till labelled anti-antibodies binds antigen- antibody complex – Wash remove unbound labelled anti-antibody – Add substrate ; incubate – Enzyme + Substrate Product measure colour – Colour proportional to antibody in patient sample
Non-competitive or Sandwich Assay Antigen measuring system – Plate wells coated with suitable antibody – Add sample containing the antigen – Incubate: till antigen antibody reaction is complete – Wash remove unbound antigen – Add Antibody labelled with Enzyme – Incubate till antigen binds labelled antibody – Wash remove unbound labelled antibody – Add substrate ; incubate – Enzyme + Substrate Product measure colour – Colour proportional to antigen in patient sample
Competitive Binding assay Plate wells coated with antibodies Known quantities of patient sample containing antigen + antigen labelled with enzyme Incubate: till antigen antibody reaction is complete Wash remove unbound antigens Add substrate ; incubate Enzyme + Substrate Product measure colour Colour inversely related to antigen in patient sample
Tox Study Experimental Design Study title: A 4-Week Intravenous Infusion and Subcutaneous Injection Toxicity Study with ABC-001 in Cynomolgus Monkeys Followed by an 8- Week Recovery Objective: ABC-001 is a humanized IgG1 monoclonal antibody which binds human and cynomolgus monkey 001 cytokines. The objectives of this study are to determine the potential toxicity of ABC-001 when given by either 15-minute intravenous infusion or subcutaneous injection once weekly for 4 consecutive weeks to cynomolgus monkeys, to evaluate the potential reversibility of any adverse findings following an 8-week dose- free recovery period, and to provide additional nonclinical safety data to support the use of ABC-001 in humans. In addition, the toxicokinetic (TK) and immunogenic characteristics of ABC-001 will be determined.

Plate Preparation Plates can be coated and used freshly or stored at 2-8°C in airtight bag with desiccant. Prepare the plate as following: –Dilute Protein-001 Carrier- Free stock in 1X DPBS; make the final concentration 0.5 µg/mL. –Label Nunc immobilizer 96 well plates. –Add 100 µL per well of the diluted protein solution. –Seal the plates and incubate at room temperature for 2-5 hours. –Place plates in a refrigerator (2-8°C) and incubate overnight. –Wash the plate(s) 3 times using a microplate washer. –Add 200 µL per well of StabilGuard to all wells by reverse pipetting using a multichannel pipette and incubate at RT with shaking for 60±10 min. –Dump StabilGuard and blot dry. Coated plates are ready for use. –For plates to be used later days, aspirate plate and dry at room temperature over night. Store dried plate at 2-8°C in airtight bag with desiccant with an expiration date of three month.

ISR evaluation An ISR evaluation was performed on the 112 serum samples listed in the ISR Study Plan. 107 of 112 samples (95.5%) evaluated met the acceptance criteria : at least 2/3 of all the analyzed ISR samples had no more than a ± 30% difference when compared to the original analysis results. General industrial guideline: For studies up to 1000 samples reanalyze 10% of samples and for studies with over 1000 samples reanalyze 10% of the first 1000 samples and 5% of any remaining samples.
