    Research: A Vision of Hope

    Biomedical research is behind every advance in treatment for blinding conditions, behind every improvement in diagnostic methods and behind all progression in our understanding of the eye and visual processes. ARVO members are engaged in the research that brings hope to patients and their families that treatments and cures for eye disease are on the horizon. At the ARVO Annual Meeting, 11,000 researchers from around the world will come together to explore cutting-edge science, collaborations with their peers and the connections between their work and the people who will ultimately benefit from it. This meeting will be held at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington.

    About The Presenter

    J. Harry Sweigard, PhD
    Principal Scientist , Absorption

    Dr. Harry Sweigard is a Principal Scientist in the Ophthalmology unit at Absorption Systems in San Diego California.  Prior to joining Absorption Systems he was a lab head at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research where he studied the underlying mechanisms of ocular inflammation.  During his postdoctoral training and as an instructor at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary/Harvard Medical School he used a diverse set of rodent models of vascular retinopathy to better understand innate immune system involvement in retinal vascular homeostasis.  This work led to several peer-reviewed articles including a recent publication in Science Translational Medicine. This was a natural segue from his doctoral work at Tufts Sackler School where he designed novel viral vectors aimed at dampening innate immune system activation towards therapies for age-related macular degeneration.

    Dr Sweigard applies his extensive experience and expertise in ocular and neurodegenerative disease modeling to develop and validate in vivo models at Absorption Systems that can be used to determine efficacy, distribution and safety of novel ocular therapies and delivery systems.

    Complex drug products comprise a growing pharmaceutical sector, due to the safety, efficacy, and compliance benefits they provide. As reflected in recent regulatory science initiatives by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there is a rising interest in enhancing access to alternate and interchangeable versions available for all CDP categories by applying a rational, science-driven approach that conceptually relies on quality by design. During this symposium, we will discuss the evolving approaches for guiding formulation development, predicting in vivo performance, establishing critical manufacturing variables, and enhancing equivalence assurance of complex drug products. As an application of biopharmaceutics in the current pharmaceutical landscape, we will also review the expanding utility of BCS based biowaivers.

    A workshop that examines the challenges with establishing bioequivalence of locally acting topical, ocular, and inhalation pharmaceutical products and which presents various relevant solutions that could form the basis of best practice approaches for evaluating the bioequivalence of such products.

    Held in conjunction with the 2016 AAPS Annual Meeting and Exposition.

    Background

    The demonstration of bioequivalence for locally acting drugs, for which the site of action is at or near the site of application and upstream from the systemic circulation, has frequently posed some of the greatest challenges in bioequivalence. Historically, extremely expensive clinical endpoint bioequivalence studies have generally been the centerpiece of bioequivalence assessments for such products. In addition to the high cost and difficulty associated with such clinical endpoint studies, they are notoriously insensitive toward formulation differences. Although these problems have plagued those firms seeking to develop a variety of different dosage forms, three of the most problematic routes of administration have been topical (dermatological), ocular, and inhalation. The vast majority of publications and public meetings addressing bioequivalence for products administered via these three routes have focused narrowly on a single route of administration. However, there are many challenges that are common to the development of alternative bioequivalence strategies of products administered via these three non-oral routes.

    Goals

    This workshop seeks to bring together the latest research and thinking from these three fields to explore the possibilities of developing more unified, totality of evidence-based approaches toward the demonstration of bioequivalence for these products in ways that significantly reduce the clinical burden.

    Who Should Attend

    This workshop will be of particular interest to scientists in preclinical and clinical development, interested in branded and generic small molecule therapeutic drug products. Particularly relevant for small to medium size companies who are trying to enter the space of locally acting drug products.

    The primary purpose of this session is to understand and quantify the functional parameters that control product performance to establish bioequivalence for locally acting drug products. Measures of functional performance include permeation across relevant biological barriers; drug accumulation at the site of action and its distribution in adjacent tissues; and potential biomarker quantitation that directly correlate to its pharmacologic effect. Combining traditional structural characterization of locally acting formulations with orthogonal functional measures of effect augments the case for a possible bio-exemption and has the potential to be applicable across broader product categories.

    Biotherapeutic products are the fastest growing medicines in the pharmaceutical market. Despite their clinical success, the immunogenicity of biotherapeutics continues to be a major concern. Assessment of immunogenicity as well as appropriate interpretation of immunogenicity data is therefore, of critical importance for defining safety profile and it is one of the regulatory requirements for the approval of these products. In the past decade, much progress has been made towards how immunogenicity should be studied. At this workshop, experts from industry, academia and former FDA will provide an overview of the methods used for assessing immunogenicity of biotherapeutics, case studies as well as current challenges and the most important considerations in interpreting results in the context of regulatory review of these products.

    Agenda:

    The following topics will be presented with ample opportunity for discussion:

    • Regulatory perspective on immunogenicity assessment strategies and methodologies
    • Immunogenicity risk assessment and mitigation strategies
    • Considerations for anti-drug and neutralizing method design, development and validation
    • Immunogenicity of novel therapeutic modalities
    • Overcoming challenges in immunogenicity testing
    • Immune tolerance induction: basic concepts and case studies
