The therapeutic monoclonal antibody, Infliximab (IFX), is a widely used drug for the treatment of several inflammatory autoimmune diseases. However, approximately 10% of patients develop anti-infliximab antibodies (ATIs) rendering the treatment ineffective. Early detection of underexposure to unbound IFX would result in a timely switch of therapy, which could aid in the treatment of this disease.
In this webinar, a sensitive, robust and cost-effective method will be presented for the bioanalysis of IFX with LC–MS/MS by means of a target-based pre-analytical sample purification. Low volume and low cost of consumables/sample highlight its feasibility in preclinical studies.
What will you learn?
- How to develop a confident, robust, reliable, and sensitive quantitation assay for proteins
- Ways to increase efficiency in sample preparation
- The abiltiy to optimize LC and MS methods for performing protein quantitation assays with confidence
- How to address critical challenges in a preclinical environment: from achieving sensitvity to reducing cost/sample
