    Fortem film development is an important investment by GE Healthcare, as it helps meet the industry need for a fully characterized platform film across all bioprocessing applications with supply chain transparency as a focal point. 

  3. Biopharma 4.0: The Convergence Of Informational, Operational, And Processing Technologies
    8/7/2019

    Biomanufacturers seeking a place in a competitive and lucrative future must start engaging in change now to meet the demands for delivering drugs more quickly to the patients who need them.

  4. Key Concepts Driving The Future Of Single-Use In Biopharma Production
    7/31/2019

    This article discusses four topics related to single-use bioprocessing which are commonly cited by end users as amenable to future development. 

  5. A Novel Cell-Based Screening Assay For Cholesterol Biosynthetic Pathway Inhibition Using The RapidFire HTMS Platform
    7/25/2019

    A client was exploring the possibility of re-purposing an internal collection of antifungal CYP51A1 inhibitors for targeting cancers. GVK BIO was commissioned to enable the such project. Learn how a CYP51A1 inhibitor screening assay using the RapidFire HTMS method was deemed to be optimized, and screening of client compounds was enabled with an acceptable throughput and in a cost-effective manner. This project then went on to yield high potency compounds for the client which allowed them to further their drug discovery plans.

  6. Pharmacokinetic Strategies In CNS Drug Discovery
    7/25/2019

    The failure rate for new drugs targeting important CNS diseases in general have higher failure rates than the other diseases, both preclinically and clinically. Pharmacokinetics of the drug along with the drug delivery mechanisms play an important role in determining the success of new CNS drug because blood-brain barriers (BBB) limit the entry of molecules into the CNS. This paper discusses some successful PK approaches that we have employed in the recent past and may help in CNS targeted drug discovery and development efforts.

  7. In Vivo Models And In Vitro Assays For Human RSV Infection - Pre-Clinical Antibody, Small Molecule And Vaccine Development
    7/25/2019

    Despite over 50 years of research, there remains no licensed vaccine product and disease due to RSV infection remains an unmet medical need. In vitro & in vivo models for RSV vaccine development can provide a critical component in development of anti-RSV antibodies, small molecules and vaccines. Learn how customized and high quality pre-clinical animal models and ex vivo readouts can support your anti-RSV biologics development from concept all the way to IND.

  8. A Highly Reproducible In Vivo Model For Bleomycin-Induced Lung Fibrosis In Mice To Evaluate Drugs For The Treatment Of IPF
    7/25/2019

    Bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis has been a useful pre-clinical model in several species and is most prevalent in rodent models to evaluate potential prophylactic and therapeutic drugs for IPF. The induction and progression of the disease in rodents is of a short duration, making it a practical model for evaluating test compounds in preclinical research. Major drawbacks for this model have been its mortality rate and inconsistency in the induction of the disease. Access to a large portfolio of in vivo fibrosis models allowed for successful drug testing.

  9. Meeting Milestones—And Patient Needs—Through Expedited Delivery Of Phase I Materials
    7/17/2019

    To quickly deliver their product to patients in need, Reneo Pharma teamed up with Thermo Fisher Scientific to take advantage of its Quick to Clinic for Oral Solid Dose program.

  10. Where To Next With Continuous Processing?
    7/16/2019

    Today multiple suppliers offer commercial process solutions for continuous cell culture, continuous clarification, continuous chromatography, continuous virus inactivation and continuous filtration and their effectiveness is documented in the technical literature. So, what’s next? We have the tools; the technology is proven and early adopters are active.
