Industrial aspects of finished monoclonal antibody therapies

Faltes, Marc and Elkordy, Amal (2023) Industrial aspects of finished monoclonal antibody therapies. In: Formulation of Monoclonal Antibody Therapies: From Lab to Market. Elsevier, pp. 259-285. ISBN 9780128233658

Item Type: Book Section


Monoclonal antibodies have proved to be a highly successful class of biopharmaceutical therapeutics. However, large-scale industrial manufacturing of these products is a complex process from the beginning steps of manufacturing, isolation, purification, final formulation, packaging, and storage. The packaging of monoclonal antibodies has an important role in providing stable and effective therapeutic antibodies. Therefore, the focus of this chapter will be on mAb packaging materials. There are three main packaging for monoclonal antibodies, glass vials, prefilled syringes, and autoinjectors. In this chapter, the structure, function, advantages, and disadvantages (in terms of stability and safety) of the three packaging types will be discussed.
