Gene Therapy

Related topics:

Adeno-associated viruses (AAV) based APIs currently draw attention in gene therapy.  Up to date, they are not known to be pathogenic by themselves and cause mild immune responses. As they are part of the dependoparvovirus family, they depend on a helper virus to replicate. These facts make them easy to handle and comparably safe to use. Additionally, their small size (22 nm) allows for a comparably easy analysis in comparison to much larger virus-based APIs. For more information about analytical strategies for AAV products please follow the link.

In this sub-section we cover all non-AAV virus-based APIs. As most of them are much larger than AAVs (up to several hundred nanometers), different analytical approaches must be applied. The analytical strategy is strongly dependent on the properties of the respective virus that is used in your product. For more information about analytical strategies for virus-based APIs please follow the link.

In this subsection we address all gene therapy products that are not viruses or AAVs. Our scientists have worked with a wide range of different gene therapy products, ranging from small DNA / RNA complexes over lyposome-based carrier systems to viruses that are several hundred nanometers in size. The topic of gene therapy shows such a diversity of approaches that we are not able to cover all current and future development categories. Therefore, in this chapter we try to provide information that is valid for most products For more information about analytical strategies for gene therapy products please follow the link.

Within this section we focus on protein / peptide-based products. Protein (especially antibody) based products comprise the largest group of biopharmaceuticals.  Despite increased interest in gene therapy products, antibody-based drugs will dominate the pharmaceutical industry for a long time.  For detailed information please follow the link

Gene Therapy

For gene therapy product development, traditional quality attributes like product purity are just as important as, for example, the ratio of carrier particles loaded with nucleic acids to empty particles. Approaches for gene therapy API analysis are therefore diverse and require expertise. Our scientists will help you with the challenging task of product characterization. We have worked with a wide spectrum of different gene therapy products, ranging from small DNA / RNA complexes over liposome-based carrier systems and adeno-associated viruses (AAV) to viruses that are several hundreds of nanometers in size, and we will assist you with your individual product. 

To date, three analytical techniques seem cover analytical requirements for most possible APIs.

Adeno-Associated Virus

Virus
