Edited by three pioneers in the field, each with longstanding experience in the biotech industry, and a skilled scientific writer, this is the first book to cover every step in the development and production of immunoglobulin Fc-fusion proteins as therapeutics for human disease: from choosing the right molecular design, to pre-clinical characterization of the purified product, through to batch optimization and quality control for large-scale cGMP production. The whole of the second part is devoted to case studies of Fc-fusion proteins that are now commercially successful products. In this section, the authors, several of whom were personally involved in clinical development of the products themselves, detail the product?s background and give insight into issues that were faced and how these issues were overcome during clinical development. This section also includes a chapter on promising new developments for the future. An invaluable resource for professionals already working on Fc-fusion proteins and an excellent and thorough introduction for physicians, researchers, and students entering the field.

The state of the art in biopharmaceutical FUSION PROTEINDESIGN Fusion proteins belong to the most lucrative biotechdrugs—with Enbrel® being one of the best-sellingbiologics worldwide. Enbrel® represents a milestone of moderntherapies just as Humulin®, the first therapeutic recombinantprotein for human use, approved by the FDA in 1982 andOrthoclone® the first monoclonal antibody reaching the marketin 1986. These first generation molecules were soon followed by aplethora of recombinant copies of natural human proteins, and in1998, the first de novo designed fusion protein was launched. Fusion Protein Technologies for Biopharmaceuticalsexamines the state of the art in developing fusion proteins forbiopharmaceuticals, shedding light on the immense potentialinherent in fusion protein design and functionality. A widepantheon of international scientists and researchers deliver acomprehensive and complete overview of therapeutic fusion proteins,combining the success stories of marketed drugs with the dynamicpreclinical and clinical research into novel drugs designed for asyet unmet medical needs. The book covers the major types of fusionproteins—receptor-traps, immunotoxins, Fc-fusions andpeptibodies—while also detailing the approaches fordeveloping, delivering, and improving the stability of fusionproteins. The main body of the book contains three large sectionsthat address issues key to this specialty: strategies for extendingthe plasma half life, the design of toxic proteins, and utilizingfusion proteins for ultra specific targeting. The book concludeswith novel concepts in this field, including examples of highlyrelevant multifunctional antibodies. Detailing the innovative science, commercial realities, andbrilliant potential of fusion protein therapeutics, FusionProtein Technologies for Biopharmaceuticals is a must forpharmaceutical scientists, biochemists, medicinal chemists,molecular biologists, pharmacologists, and genetic engineersinterested in determining the shape of innovation in the world ofbiopharmaceuticals.

In this practice-oriented two volume handbook, professionals from some of the largest biopharmaceutical companies and top academic researchers address the key concepts and challenges in the development of protein pharmaceuticals for medicinal chemists and drug developers of all trades. Following an introduction tracing the rapid development of the protein therapeutics market over the last decade, all currently used therapeutic protein scaffolds are surveyed, from human and non-human antibodies to antibody mimetics, bispecific antibodies and antibody-drug conjugates. This ready reference then goes on to review other key aspects such as pharmacokinetics, safety and immunogenicity, manufacture, formulation and delivery. The handbook then takes a look at current key clinical applications for protein therapeutics, from respiratory and inflammation to oncology and immune-oncology, infectious diseases and rescue therapy. Finally, several exciting prospects for the future of protein therapeutics are highlighted and discussed.

Highlights: FcRn binding of therapeutic Fc-fusion protein samples has been evaluated. Assays were developed based on two novel technologies: AlphaScreen and BLI. Found positive correlation between the level of aggregates and FcRn binding. The magnitude of the effect depends on the assay format: important to investigate. Presence of aggregates in the samples can mask the loss of FcRn binding. Abstract: Recycling of antibodies and Fc containing therapeutic proteins by the neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn) is known to prolong their persistence in the bloodstream. Fusion of Fc fragment of IgG1 to other proteins is one of the strategies to improve their pharmacokinetic properties. Accurate measurement of Fc–FcRn binding provides information about the strength of this interaction, which in most cases correlates with serum half-life of the protein. It can also offer insight into functional integrity of Fc region. We investigated FcRn binding activity of a large set of Fc-fusion samples after thermal stress by the method based on AlphaScreen technology. An unexpected significant increase in FcR binding was found to correlate with formation of aggregates in these samples. Monomer purified from a thermally-stressed sample had normal FcRn binding, confirming that its Fc portion was intact. Experiments with aggregates spiked into a sample with low initial aggregation level, demonstrated strong correlation between the level of aggregates and FcRn binding. This correlation varied significantly in different methods. By introducing modifications to the assay format we were able to minimize the effects of aggregated species on FcRn binding, which should prevent masking functional changes of Fc-fusion protein. Biolayer interferometry (BLI) was used as an alternative method to measure FcRn binding. Both optimized AlphaScreen- and BLI-based assays were sensitive to structural changes in Fc portion of the molecule, such as oxidation of methionines 252 and 428, and therefore suitable for characterization of FcRn binding.
