Biosimilars Analytical Characterization and Comparability Studies: One and a Half-day In-person Seminar
Dr. Nanda Subbarao, Senior Consultant, Biologics Consulting Group
Coming soon.. Please contact customer care for new schedule
Analytical Strategy is a critical element of Biosimilar product development plan. A comprehensive Analytical package which meets current regulatory expectations will minimize the amount of clinical studies and therefore control costs of the Biosimilar development program.
This is a rapidly evolving topic and the industry needs to keep up with the current expectations. The draft Revision1 of the EU Biosimilar Quality guidance was issued in May 2012 and is currently open for comments. The FDA guidance on Quality Considerations in Demonstrating Biosimilarity To a Reference Protein Product is expected this year. Other regions of the world continue to publish Biosimilar Guidance and their revisions and several scientific publications which present the industry point of view have been published recently.
This workshop will provide the audience with:
- An overview of the current status of Global Biosimilar Guidance with a focus on the Analytical Package required for a Biosimilar product.
- The Analytical comparability studies currently required for comparison of the Reference Product with the Biosimilar will be discussed.
- The Analytical methods and specifications required for both comparability studies and lot release and stability studies will be addressed.
Who will Benefit:
- R&D chemists, supervisors and managers
- Regulatory Affairs personnel
- QC chemists, supervisors and managers
- QA Managers and personnel

What past attendees say about ComplianceOnline Seminars
The presenter, Nanda, was knowledgeable and brought up some interesting challenges faced when dealing with OOS, stability and method validation activities. I felt the entire seminar was relevant to my job, which is a rarity. I plan on using the material and ideas from the seminar to evaluate some of the approaches we are currently taking. I felt I could have used a little more time listening/ talking with the presenter. I was also impressed that Nanda responded quickly to a question I had after the seminar via e-mail.
- QA Specialist, Stiefel, a GSK company
Nanda’s In-Person Seminar was one of the best seminar I attended. Many time we look at work place as the best place to work and we ignore the minor and major improvements that could be done in the facility. After attending the seminar I look at my work place as an Auditor and I definitely see the potential improvement area. In future I would like to attend more seminars with ComplianceOnline.
- QA/QC Supervisor, Xttrium Laboratories, Inc.
I found this seminar to be very informative and educational. Dr. Subbarao provided expert guidance on key industry topics and practical advice on ways to maintain compliance. She was engaging and a very effective speaker. I would recommend this class with Dr. Subbarao.
- Vice President - Regulatory Affairs/Quality, Inhibitex Inc.
I've attended quite a few seminars by different training providers but ComplianceOnline was by and far the best - the courses are well designed and up to date with the latest developments and the support staff are always helpful, ready to answer your queries.
- Chief Executive Officer
The instructor was not only active and helpful during the seminar and workshop, but was available to answer resulting queries after the event as well.

San Diego Cabrillo National Monument
The first European to set foot in California was the Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, who stepped on shore near this spot in in 1542. He's the guy they made this statue to look like - and named the park after. We don't know if Cabrillo climbed all the way up to the top of this promontory or not, but people who make up here nowadays get some of the best views of San Diego, looking across the Bay and back toward downtown.
Sea Creatures at Birch Aquarium
Birch Aquarium is north of San Diego in La Jolla. It's not as big as some of the other aquariums in California or as flashy as the big sea-themed park down the road, but instead just right, filled with interesting exhibits and home to leafy sea dragons like the one above, creatures so improbably they look more like something from a children's book than from the ocean.
Legoland theme park takes its inspiration from Lego toys, those cute little bricks that snap together to build all kinds of fun things. It's one of several Legolands worldwide.
San Diego Zoo Safari Park
The San Diego Zoo's sister park offers a different kind of animal experience. Its name (Safari Park) is the clue and it indeed offers a more safari-like experience. Lots of large animals live in the same big, open areas here - predators kept away from prey, but otherwise much as they would in their natural habitat.
Coronado isn't really an island but a peninsula - a fact that doesn't get in the way of the name most people use for it. Whatever you call it, it's on a slender strip of land between the San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, barely a few blocks wide. What it lacks in size it makes up for in fun, with a beach that's been named among the best in the country, a classic hotel and a compact, lively little downtown. Coronado's laid-back temperament makes a nice break from the busier parts of San Diego across the water.
Originally built for temporary use during the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, Balboa Park boasts buildings beautiful enough to be considered attractions in themselves, especially if you're a photographer. They're surrounded by trees, lawns and fountains, but that's only the beginning.
In Spanish, La Jolla means "the jewel," an apt name for a pretty, Mediterranean-style seaside town - sitting on cliffs flanking the ocean.
La Jolla visitors like to shop and eat in the nice restaurants, some of them with lovely ocean views. There's a lot for the active visitor, too, including ocean kayaking, tide pool-hopping, surfing at Windansea Beach, biking or running along the waterfront.
