Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) are a new and rapidly growing classification of therapeutics which include such modalities as modified cell therapies (ex. CAR-T cells), mRNA-derived complexes (e.g. mRNA LNPs), and viral-vectored gene therapies (ex. AAV-based). The inherent complexity of this class of therapeutics leads to unique considerations for designing control strategies to support product development which are distinct from more traditional biologics. This webinar will provide an overview of considerations relevant to representative ATMPs in the development and lifecycle of assays for potency, purity, quantity, and identity for the product. We will then discuss case studies which demonstrate key considerations for development and phase-appropriate validation (qualification) of tests for potency, purity/impurity, quantity, and identity of ATMP drug products.
