Lack of standardization in immunogenicity – a CRO perspective


Intrinsic to the analysis of biotherapeutics is the development, validation and application of immunogenicity methods. Although critical to safety and efficacy assessments, there is still a lack of industry standardization in approach, validation and reporting. In the absence of clear, uniform guidance, experimental design and acceptance criteria are also open to interpretation.

In this webinar we explore the challenges this presents for CRO project managers and scientists as well as biopharma and biotech companies.

What will you learn?

  • Understanding of the issues generated by a lack of standardization within the context of regulatory guidance updates (draft and published)
  • Impact assessment of a lack of consensus on analytical method validation and reporting

Who may this interest?

  • Outsource managers (biopharma and biotech)
  • Project managers and scientists (biopharma and biotech)
  • Project managers and scientists (CRO)
