Thermostability reinforcement through a combination of thermostability-related mutations of N-carbamyl-D-amino acid amidohydrolase. (1/1820)

For the improvement of N-carbamyl-D-amino acid amidohydrolase (DCase), which can be used for the industrial production of D-amino acids, the stability of DCase from Agrobacterium sp. KNK712 was improved through various combinations of thermostability-related mutations. The thermostable temperature (defined as the temperature on heat treatment for 10 min that caused a decrease in the DCase activity of 50%) of the enzyme which had three amino acids, H57Y, P203E, and V236A, replaced was increased by about 19 degrees C. The mutant DCase, designated as 455M, was purified and its enzymatic properties were studied. The enzyme had highly increased stability against not only temperature but also pH, the optimal temperature of the enzyme being about 75 degrees C. The substrate specificity of the enzyme for various N-carbamyl-D-amino acids was changed little in comparison with that of the native enzyme. Enzymochemical parameters were also measured.  (+info)

Anticipating a diminishing market for cigarettes and other tobacco products in the future, researchers around the country are studying alternative uses for tobacco plants. The most promising field of research for tobacco involves the genetic engineering of tobacco plants to produce various substances such as industrial chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and consumer product ingredients. Tobacco has been called the "fruit fly of the plant kingdom" because of the ease with which it can be genetically engineered. There are countless possibilities for the use of tobacco, but current efforts are concentrating on engineering tobacco to produce vaccines, human enzymes, and plastics. Tobacco researchers have been successful in expressing bovine lysozyme, an enzyme with antibacterial properties, and insulin.  (+info)

Recombinant follicle stimulating hormone: development of the first biotechnology product for the treatment of infertility. Recombinant Human FSH Product Development Group. (3/1820)

Genes encoding the common gonadotrophin alpha subunit and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)-specific beta subunit were isolated from a DNA library derived from human fetal liver cells, and inserted into separate expression vectors containing a selectable/amplifiable gene. These vectors were inserted into the genome of the Chinese hamster ovary cell line, resulting in expression of large amounts of biologically active human (h)FSH. This cell line was cultured on microcarrier beads in a large-scale bioreactor. hFSH in the cell culture supernatant was purified to homogeneity by a multistep process. The mature beta subunit had seven fewer amino acid residues than reported in the literature and three other differences were found in the sequence. Similar oligosaccharide structures were present on recombinant (r)-hFSH and a purified urinary (u)-hFSH preparation. In-vitro and in-vivo, the biological activities of u- and r-hFSH were indistinguishable. r-hFSH was formulated in ampoules containing 75 IU FSH activity (approximately 7.5 microg FSH), which accounts for >99% of the protein content of the preparation. Studies in non-human primates and human volunteers showed the pharmacokinetics of u- and r-hFSH to be similar. In healthy volunteers, r-hFSH stimulated follicular development and induced significant increases in serum oestradiol and inhibin. Clinical experience with r-hFSH has shown it is more effective at stimulating ovarian follicle growth than urinary gonadotrophins. It is also effective at initiating spermatogenesis when given together with human chorionic gonadotrophin.  (+info)

The challenge of integrating monoclonal antibodies into the current healthcare system. (4/1820)

Although there are few monoclonal antibody (MoAb) products on the market, the biotechnology industry has made considerable progress over the last decade. The industry has developed new technology to address the primary hurdles facing the development of MoAbs--including the immune response to murine-derived antibodies as well as lack of tumor specificity. As the techniques for development become more refined, more products will be approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Integrating these products into the existing healthcare system will be a challenge, given their high acquisition costs. Recent pharmacoeconomic examples outlined in this paper confirm that MoAb products will need to be supported with proven clinical and economic profiles. As long as a global clinical and economic perspective is taken and patient care benefits can be demonstrated, the place of MoAbs in the future of healthcare will be assured.  (+info)

A sandwiched-culture technique for evaluation of heterologous protein production in a filamentous fungus. (6/1820)

Aspergillus niger is known for its efficient excretion machinery. However, problems have often arisen in obtaining high amounts of heterologous proteins in the culture medium. Here we present a quick method using sandwiched colonies to evaluate transgenic strains for secretion of heterologous proteins. Expressing the ABH1 hydrophobin of Agaricus bisporus in A. niger, we showed that low production levels of the heterologous protein are probably due to extracellular proteolytic degradation of the protein.  (+info)

Global and local implications of biotechnology and climate change for future food supplies. (7/1820)

The development of improved technology for agricultural production and its diffusion to farmers is a process requiring investment and time. A large number of studies of this process have been undertaken. The findings of these studies have been incorporated into a quantitative policy model projecting supplies of commodities (in terms of area and crop yields), equilibrium prices, and international trade volumes to the year 2020. These projections show that a "global food crisis," as would be manifested in high commodity prices, is unlikely to occur. The same projections show, however, that in many countries, "local food crisis," as manifested in low agricultural incomes and associated low food consumption in the presence of low food prices, will occur. Simulations show that delays in the diffusion of modern biotechnology research capabilities to developing countries will exacerbate local food crises. Similarly, global climate change will also exacerbate these crises, accentuating the importance of bringing strengthened research capabilities to developing countries.  (+info)

Plant genetic resources: what can they contribute toward increased crop productivity? (8/1820)

To feed a world population growing by up to 160 people per minute, with >90% of them in developing countries, will require an astonishing increase in food production. Forecasts call for wheat to become the most important cereal in the world, with maize close behind; together, these crops will account for approximately 80% of developing countries' cereal import requirements. Access to a range of genetic diversity is critical to the success of breeding programs. The global effort to assemble, document, and utilize these resources is enormous, and the genetic diversity in the collections is critical to the world's fight against hunger. The introgression of genes that reduced plant height and increased disease and viral resistance in wheat provided the foundation for the "Green Revolution" and demonstrated the tremendous impact that genetic resources can have on production. Wheat hybrids and synthetics may provide the yield increases needed in the future. A wild relative of maize, Tripsacum, represents an untapped genetic resource for abiotic and biotic stress resistance and for apomixis, a trait that could provide developing world farmers access to hybrid technology. Ownership of genetic resources and genes must be resolved to ensure global access to these critical resources. The application of molecular and genetic engineering technologies enhances the use of genetic resources. The effective and complementary use of all of our technological tools and resources will be required for meeting the challenge posed by the world's expanding demand for food.  (+info)

TY - GEN. T1 - Trajectory tracking control for the fermentation of biotechnological processes. AU - Hörrmann, Joachim. AU - Kräling, Michael. AU - Barth, Dorothee. AU - Röck, Helmut. PY - 2009. Y1 - 2009. N2 - Due to the increasing demand for dairy products during the last decade, the need for startercultures is growing rapidly. In order to fullfill the high requirements in both product output and quality, modern process control tools have to be applied to achieve an optimal fermentation. This paper presents a method to keep the concentration of the substrate lactose on a desired trajectory during the whole production process. Therefore we propose the application of a pre-control, where the optimal values of the actuating variable, in our case the feed of substrate, can be determined a priori using a simple process modell. The combination of the calculated feedforward-control and the well-known LQ-controller delivers very good agreement between desired trajectory and measured output and is ...

Itaconic acid is one of the top bio-based chemical building blocks and thus a promising platform compound for the production of polymers, coatings, chemical compounds and biofuels. It is an important monomer for the synthesis of, e.g. poly-acrylates, rubber, colours, additives, adhesives, emulsifying agents, lipids, pharmaceuticals, herbicides and biodegradable polymers for the packaging industry. Currently, Itaconic acid is commercially produced by microbial fermentation using filamentous fungi of the genus Aspergillus, such as A. terreus. This itaconic acid producer is well characterized, but has several disadvantages. Filamentous fungi are particularly problematic as their morphology is difficult to be controlled in fermentation systems, thus the synthesis process and the quality of production is varying. The offered innovative production process of itaconic acid uses genes encoding for the biosynthesis pathway of unicellular fungi from the family of Ustilaginaceae, in particular Ustilago ...

Uncertainty avoidance: a societys fear of the unknown-the extent to which its members feel uncomfortable in situations where no standard rules of behavior exist. According to Hoftstedes findings, typical individualist countries are Italy, Great Britain, and the Netherlands; Portugal, Greece and Spain are collectivist. Individualism has developed in countries that have experienced wealth over the centuries. In terms of attitudes about biotechnology, people from these countries tend to believe in their capacity to understand biotechnology, judge biotechnology applications as having lower potential benefits, and are morally opposed to animal biotechnology.. In countries where masculine authority dominates (Finland, Spain, and Italy), the perception of the risks associated with biotechnology is lower. Understanding of biotechnology is, in general, lower in these countries than in countries with more feminine authority, such as the Netherlands, Denmark, and Germany. Furthermore, Hofstede found that ...

Gene therapy is a very different type of genetic biotechnology application which involves the manipulation of genetic material, and the genetic manipulation of organisms, in the attempt to cure specific diseases. Gene therapy involves using normal, unmutated genes to replace copies of defective disease-causing genes, or in some cases to initiate or bolster an immune response to a specific disease (such as cancer).. Gene therapy treatments can be implemented in an individual in one of two ways.. The ex vivo method of treatment involves removing a sample of a patients blood or bone marrow, and growing the cells in a laboratory. The cells are then exposed to a virus which carries a normal copy of the relevant disease-causing gene. The virus then enters cells, and introduces the normal gene into cellular DNA. Next, the cells go through a second growth period before being injected back into the patient. After a successful gene therapy treatment, the patient has a normal copy of the relevant gene and ...

It is now twenty years since the first commercial production of GM crops. Domestic regulatory regimes for agricultural biotechnology and GM foods differ considerably across the globe. As a result, international trade and other forms of exchange are considerably inhibited, leading to reduced returns for those investing in the technology and, hence, less investment in R&D for agricultural biotechnology. The latter means that biotechnology cannot fully contribute to meeting the food security challenges of the next four decades. Part of the problem is that no international regulatory regime for trade in the products of biotechnology that enjoys widespread support has been forthcoming. The Sanitary and Phytosanitary Agreement of the WTO was concluded prior to the commercialization of agricultural biotechnology and was not re-opened for negotiation in the Doha Round - which, of course, has not been concluded. In the absence of WTO engagement on the issue an alternative international institutional arrangement

Description: In May 2003, the United States, Canada, and Argentina initiated a formal challenge before the World Trade Organization (WTO) of the European Unions (EUs) de facto moratorium on approving new agricultural biotechnology products, in place since 1998. Although the EU effectively lifted the moratorium in May 2004 by approving a genetically engineered (GE) corn variety, the three countries are pursuing the case, in part because a number of EU member states continue to block approved biotech products. Because of delays, the WTO is expected to decide the case by December 2005. The moratorium reportedly cost U.S. corn growers some $300 million in exports to the EU annually. The EU moratorium, U.S. officials contend, threatened other agricultural exports not only to the EU, but also to other parts of the world where the EU approach to regulating agricultural biotechnology is taking hold. ...

The tremendous growth of biodiesel manufacturing industries has resulted in a large production of available glycerol. Therefore, development of biotechnological processes to convert this by-product into high-added value chemicals has become economically viable and needed to use this surplus. Moreover, this strategy could lead to the substitution of petroleum-sourced molecules. 3-Hydroxypropionic acid (3-HP) is a platform chemical from which several specialty products can be synthesized. This top-value added molecule is currently produced by chemical methods, but its biotechnological production is not well established and need to be enhanced to meet the increasing expectations of the market. Lactobacillus reuteri, also known for its probiotic properties, can be used for the synthesis of valuable chemicals such as 1.3 propanediol (1.3 PDO), 3-hydroxypropionaldehyde (3-HPA) or 3-HP, for example from glycerol or glucose. To our knowledge, the characterization of L. reuteri growth has not been studied in

The current work deals with the biotechnological synthesis of alpha-ketomethylvalerate (KMV) with Corynebacterium glutamicum. KMV together with the two other branched-chain alpha-keto acids alpha-ketoisovalerate (KIV) and alpha-ketoisocaproate (KIC) is used as a pharmaceutical agent and also as ingredient of functional food. So far KMV has only been produced by chemical synthesis and the aim of this work was to initiate the development of a fermentative KMV production. When C. glutamicum was cultured in the presence of KMV the growth rate and the final cell density were significantly reduced. The experiments also revealed that the branched-chain alpha-keto acids are degraded by C. glutamicum during growth. Specific branched-chain alpha-keto acid converting enzymes could not be identified in C. glutamicum. Analysis of key enzymes of the KMV biosynthesis revealed that the pyruvate condensing reaction of the acetohydroxy acid synthase (AHAS) is competitively inhibited by 100 mM KMV, whereas the ...

Research work that began in 2013 has been able to establish, optimise and standardise the cultivation of the soil bacterium and the biotechnological process for producing and isolating bacterial alginates. By working specifically on optimising the bacteriums alginate biosynthesis, the researchers succeeded in improving the composition, and therefore the properties and yield of the alginate. This meant that they could make customised alginates that are particularly suitable for producing fibres for use in medical products. In a pilot production facility, the research partners were able to spin fibres from alginate and alginate-viscose, and turn them into innovative nonwoven materials and wound dressings within the established process. When the new wound dressings were tested in use, the alginate product that had been made using biotechnology was impressive for its liquid absorption capacity, which was significantly better than that of commercially available marine alginate-based wound dressings. ...

The Second World War became a major impediment in scientific discoveries. After the end of the second world war some, very crucial discoveries were reported, which paved the path for modern biotechnology.. The origins of biotechnology culminate with the birth of genetic engineering. There were two key events that have come to be seen as scientific breakthroughs beginning the era that would unite genetics with biotechnology: One was the 1953 discovery of the structure of DNA, by Watson and Crick, and the other was the 1973 discovery by Cohen and Boyer of a recombinant DNA technique by which a section of DNA was cut from the plasmid of an E. coli bacterium and transferred into the DNA of another. Popularly referred to as genetic engineering, it came to be defined as the basis of new biotechnology.. ...

This case study of Mexico examines developments in agricultural biotechnology against the background of recent changes in macro-economic, environmental and agricultural policies as well as in the regulation of the seeds industry, intellectual property protection and biosafety. It also identifies incentives and constraints at the different phases of research, technology development and diffusion of biotechnology in agriculture. The study suggests that, under current conditions, biotechnology is likely to benefit only those producers already taking advantage of relatively complex technological packages and to bypass small farmers and peasants. It concludes with recommendations for the establishment of a biotechnology policy for the agriculture sector.
by Dr. Emil Javier. There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why… I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?. - Robert Kennedy. During the celebration of agricultural biotechnology week last November, a reader inquired why the science community seem to be so perturbed over the imposition of the writ of kalikasan by the courts on the further development of insect-resistant GMO Bt eggplant.. Indeed the Biotech Coalition of the Philippines (BCP), chaired no less than by the Dean of the UP Manila College of Public Health, Dr. Nina Gloriani, had on many occasions bewailed the mis-informed application of the writ against modern biotechnology research when precisely the protection of public health and the environment the rationale for the writ of kalikasan are the objectives of the research.. The answer is straightforward: As concerned Filipino scientists we are keenly aware of the rapid progress being made all over the world in the development of new products and ...

Downloadable! Risk perceptions about biotechnology and genetically modified (GM) foods drive the choices made by many consumers. In this paper, we address two important issues; namely, consumer preferences for mandatory labeling of products using biotechnology, as well as consumer response toward three different types of genetically modified processes (biotechnology applications to increase the nutritional content of potatoes, increase potato flavor, and a decrease in pesticide use). We identify socio-demographic characteristics that affect consumer preference for mandatory labeling as well as the support level that might be associated with biotechnology techniques that could improve upon potato characteristics identified as important by the consumer.
There is broad scientific consensus that food on the market derived from GM crops pose no greater risk than conventional food.[1][2][3][4][5][6] No reports of ill effects have been documented in the human population from GM food.[2][4][7] In 2012, the American Association for the Advancement of Science stated Foods containing ingredients from genetically modified (GM) crops pose no greater risk than the same foods made from crops modified by conventional plant breeding techniques.[1] The American Medical Association, the National Academies of Sciences and the Royal Society of Medicine have stated that no adverse health effects on the human population related to GM food have been reported and/or substantiated in peer-reviewed literature to date.[2][4][7] A 2004 report by Working Group 1 of the ENTRANSFOOD project, a group of scientists funded by the European Commission to identify prerequisites for introducing agricultural biotechnology products in a way that is largely acceptable to European ...
The feedstocks used for the production of bio-based chemicals have recently expanded from edible sugars to inedible and more recalcitrant forms of lignocellulosic biomass. To produce bio-based chemicals from renewable polysaccharides, several bioprocessing approaches have been developed and include separate hydrolysis and fermentation (SHF), simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF), and consolidated bioprocessing (CBP). In the last decade, SHF, SSF, and CBP have been used to generate macromolecules and aliphatic and aromatic compounds that are capable of serving as sustainable, drop-in substitutes for petroleum-based chemicals. The present review focuses on recent progress in the bioprocessing of microbially produced chemicals from renewable feedstocks, including starch and lignocellulosic biomass. In particular, the technological feasibility of bio-based chemical production is discussed in terms of the feedstocks and different bioprocessing approaches, including the consolidation of enzyme

A variety of renewable starting materials, such as sugars and polysaccharides, vegetable oils, lignin, pine resin derivatives, and proteins, have so far been investigated for the preparation of bio-based polymers. Among the various sources of bio-based feedstock, vegetable oils are one of the most widely used starting materials in the polymer industry due to their easy availability, low toxicity, and relative low cost. Another bio-based plastic of great interest is poly(lactic acid) (PLA), widely used in multiple commercial applications nowadays. There is an intrinsic expectation that bio-based polymers are also biodegradable, but in reality there is no guarantee that polymers prepared from biorenewable feedstock exhibit significant or relevant biodegradability. Biodegradability studies are therefore crucial in order to assess the long-term environmental impact of such materials. This review presents a brief overview of the different classes of bio-based polymers, with a strong focus on vegetable oil
The upstream stage of the production process involves searching for and extracting raw materials. The upstream part of the production process does not do anything with the material itself, such as processing the material. This part of the process simply finds and extracts the raw material. Thus, any industry that relies on the extraction of raw materials commonly has an upstream stage in its production process. In a more general sense, upstream can also refer to any part of the production process relating to the extraction stages.. ...

Organo-mineral nutrient sources are promising soil amendments for sustainable crop production in Nigeria. A field experiment was conducted at the Teaching and Research Farm of the Cross River University of Technology Obubra during the 2016 cropping season. The objective of the study was to evaluate the effects of nitrogen (N) and amended rice mill waste (RMW) on some soil chemical properties and yield of maize (Zea mays L.). The treatments consisted of 10 kg ha-1 RMW as control and 10 kg ha-1 of RMW amended with 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 kg N ha-1. The 6 treatments were replicated 3 times under RCBD with each experimental plot size measuring 4 × 3 m. All the treatments including control increased the chemical properties of the soil over the initial soil properties including total N, available P, SOM, pH and the exch. Cations; Ca2+, K+, Mg2+, Na+. RMW + 40 kg N ha-1 and RMW 50 kg N ha-1 produced tallest plants, highest number of leaves per plant and largest leaf area of maize plants.  RMW + 30
As noted in a previous entry in this blog, the use of certain genetically modified plants as feedstocks for biofuel production may be subject to regulations promulgated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), that have been used for over two decades to regulate the agricultural biotechnology industry.

If you have a question about this talk, please contact Megan Cooper.. A major roadblock to the commercialisation of algae for industrial biotechnology is the contamination of cultures via adventitious organisms, such as bacteria. However, algal-bacterial interactions are common in nature, and many algae require bacterial symbionts for the provision of key nutrients such as vitamin B12 . In order to improve the commercial prospects of large-scale microalgal culture, I am investigating the potential for algal-bacterial consortia to reduce contamination by adventitious bacteria and improve the stability and productivity of algal cultures. Utilising a model algal-bacterial symbiosis between the green alga Lobomonas rostrata and the rhizobial bacterium Mesorhizobium loti, I have investigated the role of bacteria in the phycosphere and the effects of bacteria on algal growth.

When we talk about employing biotechnologies in agricultural production and sustainable food systems for better nutrition its easy to get lost in the jargon. Youve probably heard some of it-use of molecular markers, microbial food fermentation, reproductive technologies in livestock, DNA-based kits to diagnose diseases in farmed fish and of course genetic modification. For our part, at the UNs Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), we are encouraging governments, researchers and the private sector to take bold steps to ensure safe, evidence-based agricultural biotechnology is placed into the hands of smallholder farmers, fishers and pastoralists. And we need to get on with that now, as our Asia-Pacific region is increasingly facing some predictable and unpredictable results of climate change and the future effects these will have on agricultural production, particularly for ...
The industrial biotechnology is dealing with the production of bulk and fine chemicals, for example the production of monomers for polymer industry by optimized enzymes, cells or microorganisms. These are so called biocatalysts. As basic raw materials solely renewable resources like plant oils and fats from sunflowers, rapeseed, oilpalm or tallow, as well as carbohydrates from crop, corn, sugarcane or sugarbeet. Because of high competition to food and feed industry lots of research is going on focussing on the utilization of alternative plant oils as well as residual lignocellulosic biomass from forestry and agriculture (wood, straw). Compared to conventional chemical methods biotransformations, using microorganisms and enzymes, take place under mild conditions and low energy consumption. Enzymes do normally have high selectivity and do generally not built any byproducts. Potential disadvantages are low product concentrations and production rates. The product has to be purified and concentrated ...

The study was designed to evaluate the ethanolic extract acaricide action from Pouteria gardneriana Radlk specie adsorbed in chitosan nanoparticles for controlled release against Riphicephalus (Boophilus) microplus. Leaves of P. gardneriana Radlk were collected, air-dried, ground and extracted with ethanol. Chitosan nanospheres were obtained by the phase inversion method. Conductometric titration, UV-Vis and FTIR analysis were conducted with the materials to evaluate the chitosan anchoring ability. In vitro test was performed using engorged females for each treatment, which consisted of the control, raw extract and three treatments diluted, with increasing concentrations of 0.2, 0.4 and 1%. The most effectiveness extract was for 0.4% concentration by observing reduction in the eggs mass compared to control group. The nanomaterial proved to be able to anchor and release the insecticide gradually in pH between 5 and 6 regions, which makes it feasible for use in cattle, prolonging the exposure time
The 2002 Food Summit organized by FAO was considered to be a waste of time by many of the official participants.[61] Social movements, farmers, fisherfolk, pastoralists, indigenous peoples, environmentalists, womens organizations, trade unions and NGOs expressed their collective disappointment in, and rejection of the official Declaration of the ... Summit.[62] In 2004, FAO produced a controversial report called Agricultural Biotechnology: meeting the needs of the poor?. The report claimed that agricultural biotechnology has real potential as a new tool in the war on hunger.[63] In response to the report, more than 650 organizations from around the world signed an open letter in which they said FAO has broken its commitment to civil society and peasants organisations. The letter complained that organizations representing the interests of farmers had not been consulted, that FAO was siding with the biotechnology industry and, consequently, that the report raises serious questions about ...
In some studies, high yields and productivities were achieved. Immobilized L-arabinose isomerase in calcium alginate produced 145 g/L of tagatose with 48 % conversion of galactose and a productivity of 54 g/Lh in a packed-bed reactor [123]. An enzyme of T. 9 % and a productivity up to 10 g/Lh with, however, lower conversion. After incubation of the resulting syrup with S. cerevisiae, purities above 95 % were achieved [85]. The enzyme of T. neapolitana immobilized on chitopearl beds gave a tagatose concentration of 138 g/L at 70 C [86].

Background: Vitamin K2 (menaquinone, MK-n) is a lipid-soluble vitamin that functions as a carboxylase co-factor for maturation of proteins involved in many vital physiological processes in humans. Notably, long-chain vitamin K2 is produced by bacteria, including some species and strains belonging to the group of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) that play important roles in food fermentation processes. This study was performed to gain insights into the natural long-chain vitamin K2 production capacity of LAB and the factors influencing vitamin K2 production during cultivation, providing a basis for biotechnological production of vitamin K2 and in situ fortification of this vitamin in food products. Results: We observed that six selected Lactococcus lactis strains produced MK-5 to MK-10, with MK-8 and MK-9 as the major MK variant. Significant diversities between strains were observed in terms of specific concentrations and titres of vitamin K2. L. lactis ssp. cremoris MG1363 was selected for more ...

The demonstration of clonal derivation can be a big effort for the pharmaceutical industry, but does it really ensure a homogenous product quality?. ...
In the 1980s the FDA began to receive marketing applications for biotechnology-derived protein products.. In 1996 the FDA provided Guidance Concerning Demonstration of Comparability of Human Biological Products, Including Therapeutic Biotechnology Products which explained to an applicant how, through a combination of analytical testing, functional assays, assessment of pharmacokinetics and/or pharmacodynamics, and study of toxicity in animals, as well as clinical testing, a manufacturing change proposed by the manufacturer of a reference product would not adversely affect the identity, purity or potency of its FDA- approved product.. This guidance has allowed the FDA to approve many manufacturing process changes for licensed biological products based on product comparability before and after the process change. In some cases, these studies have led the FDA to require additional nonclinical or clinical testing to prove comparability.. These documents have defined a biosimilar as a biological ...
