Follow-on Biologics Workshop

Follow-on Biologics Workshop

Monday, December 12, 2005 - Wednesday, December 14, 2005

New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge

Presented By

Presented by the New York Academy of Sciences, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology


The goal of this meeting is to address the scientific issues associated with the characterization and demonstration of similarity of protein pharmaceutical products. This event will provide an overview of currently available analytical methodologies and technologies as well as perspectives on future technology. The focus will be on the use of analytical techniques to characterize follow-on biologics and on the role of the fermentation and purification processes in determining product quality attributes. Also addressed will be challenges to characterizing and comparing proteins in the absence of reference standards for the active pharmaceutical ingredient.
