Standard Practice for Process Step to Inactivate Rodent Retrovirus with Triton X-100 Treatment
|Publication Date:||1 September 2016|
This practice assures effective inactivation of ≥4 log10 of infectious rodent retrovirus (that is, reduction from 10 000 to 1 infectious rodent retrovirus or removal of 99.99 % of infectious rodent retroviruses) in the manufacturing processes of monoclonal antibodies or immunoglobulin G (IgG) Fc fusion proteins manufactured in rodent-derived cell lines that do not target retroviral antigens. Rodent retrovirus is used as a model for rodent cell substrate endogenous retrovirus-like particles potentially present in the production stream of these proteins.
The parameters specified for this practice are clarification, Triton X-100 detergent concentration, hold time, pH, and inactivation temperature.
This practice can be used in conjunction with other clearance or inactivation unit operations that are orthogonal to this inactivation mechanism to achieve sufficient total process clearance or inactivation of rodent retrovirus.
This detergent inactivation step is performed on a clarified, cell-free intermediate of the monoclonal antibody or IgG Fc fusion protein.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
