Recommendations of the Oligonucleotide Safety Working Group’s Formulated Oligonucleotide Subcommittee for the Safety Assessment of Formulated Oligonucleotide-Based Therapeutics

Marlowe, Jenny and Akopian, Viola and Karmali, Priya and Kornbrust, Doug and Lockridge, Jennifer and Semple, Sean (2017) Recommendations of the Oligonucleotide Safety Working Group’s Formulated Oligonucleotide Subcommittee for the Safety Assessment of Formulated Oligonucleotide-Based Therapeutics. Nucleic Acid Therapeutics. ISSN 2159-33372159-3345

Abstract

The use of lipid formulations has greatly improved the ability to effectively deliver oligonucleotides and has been instrumental in the rapid expansion of therapeutic development programs employing oligonucleotide drugs. However, the development of such complex, multi-component therapeutics requires the implementation of unique, scientifically sound approaches based upon a hybrid of knowledge and experiences drawn from small-molecule, protein and oligonucleotide therapeutic drug development. The relative paucity of directly applicable regulatory guidance documents for oligonucleotide therapeutics in general has resulted in the generation of multiple white papers from oligonucleotide drug development experts and members of the Oligonucleotide Safety Working Group (OSWG). The members of the Formulated Oligonucleotide Subcommittee of the OSWG have utilized their collective experience working with a variety of formulations and their associated oligonucleotide ‘payloads’, as well as their insights into regulatory considerations and expectations, to generate a series of consensus recommendations for the pharmacokinetic characterization and nonclinical safety assessment of this unique class of therapeutics.
