Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) such as cell and gene therapies represent a heterogenic class of therapeutics with unique challenges for evaluating safety and efficacy during drug development. Specifically, the potential for ATMPs to induce humoral and cellular immune responses is a key area of bioanalysis. In this eChalk Talk, we will discuss the different platforms that are used to evaluate the immunogenicity of ATMPs including ligand binding assays, flow cytometry, and ELISpot. We will also highlight some of the key considerations for development and validation of these types of bioanalytical assays to support ATMP drug development.
