Abstract

High-producing cell line could improve the affordability and availability of biotherapeutic products. A post-approval production cell line change, low-titer CHO-K1S to high-titer CHO-K1SV GS-KO, was performed for a China marketed bevacizumab biosimilar IBI305. Currently, there is no regulatory guideline specifically addressing the requirements for comparability study of post-approval cell line change, which is generally regarded as the most complex process change for biological products. Following the quality by design principle and risk assessment, an extensive analytical characterization and three-way comparison was performed by using a panel of advanced analytical methods. Orthogonal and state-of-the-art techniques including nuclear magnetic resonance and high-resolution mass spectrometry were applied to mitigate the potential uncertainties of higher-order structures and to exclude any new sequence variants, scrambled disulfide bonds, glycan moiety and undesired process-related impurities such as host cell proteins. Nonclinical and clinical pharmacokinetics (PK) studies were conducted subsequently to further confirm the comparability. The results demonstrated that the post-change IBI305 was analytically comparable to the pre-change one and similar to the reference product in physicochemical and biological properties, as well as the degradation behaviors in accelerated stability and forced degradation studies. The comparability was further confirmed by comparable PK, pharmacodynamics, toxicological and immunogenicity profiles of nonclinical and clinical studies. The comparability strategy presented here might extend to cell line changes of other post-approval biological products, and particularly set a precedent in China for post-approval cell line change of commercialized biosimilars.
