Formulation and delivery issues for monoclonal antibody therapeutics

Antibodies can have exquisite specificity of target recognition and thus generate highly selective outcomes following their systemic administration. While antibodies can have high specificity, the doses required to treat patients, particularly for a chronic condition, are typically large. Fortunately, advances in production and purification capacities have allowed for the exceptionally large amounts of highly purified monoclonal antibodies to be produced. Additionally, genetic engineering of antibodies has provided a stable of antibody-like proteins that can be easier to prepare. Together, these advances have made antibody-based therapies one of the most commonly pursued pharmaceuticals in biotechnology pipelines. With this success, however, has come a series of technical challenges in the formulation of antibody-based materials to maintain sufficient stability in a variety of configurations and sometimes at particularly high concentrations. This review focuses on issues related to identifying and verifying stable antibody-based formulations. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews Elsevier
