Evaluation of two ELISA methods to detect therapeutic anti-IGF1R antibodies in clinical study samples of dalotuzumab

Background: Dalotuzumab (MK 0646), an anti-IGF1R antibody intended for cancer therapy, has progressed to Phase III clinical trials. To evaluate pharmacokinetic properties, we developed and compared two ELISAs to measure dalotuzumab in human serum and validated the second method following regulatory guidelines for ligand-binding assays. Results: After an IGF1R-mediated capture step, dalotuzumab was detected by either an antihuman IgGFc- or by an antihuman IgG1-specific antibody. The assay range was 20 to 2000 ng/ml with mean inter-day accuracy of controls ranging from 97 to 108% (method A) and 83 to 97% (method B), respectively. Mean assay precision was ≤20% CV both...
