FDA Issues Draft Guidance on Remanufacturing and Discussion Paper Seeking Feedback on Cybersecurity Servicing of Medical Devices

With this in mind, the FDA is issuing today's draft guidance to help clarify whether activities performed on medical devices are likely remanufacturing as well as a discussion paper on cybersecurity servicing of devices.

ENPICOM, an innovative bioinformatics software engineering company, announced the upcoming expansion of the IGX Platform’s capabilities towards advanced liability prediction. At the Antibody Engineering and Therapeutics virtual conference, the company revealed its plans to integrate the Structural Antibody Prediction Platform (SAbPred) developed by researchers at the University of Oxford.

SAbPred is a widely recognized and validated tool developed by experts in molecular biology. While our team harbors a lot of knowledge in bioinformatics and software engineering, we believe this powerful combination brings the best of the two worlds. We are elevating our current platform capabilities and deliver an exceptional experience to antibody and vaccine developers looking for a more rapid, efficient, and reliable antibody discovery solution.” said Jos Lunenberg, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer at ENPICOM.

“We’re very excited to see Oxford Protein Informatics Group’s SabPred tools incorporated into ENPICOM’s IGX Platform. This collaboration will open the door for new users to apply our software to the structural analysis of antibodies.” said Fergus Boyles, Research Software Engineer at University of Oxford.

Enabling structural liability analysis at scale
Oxford researchers have developed SAbPred to perform various predictions of antibody properties that can support the discovery process and antibody design. The software helps study antibody properties and generate valuable information for developability potential of antibody candidates. SAbPred is currently used by leading biopharmaceutical companies to improve the design of antibody-based therapeutics.

By integrating SAbPred tools into the IGX Platform, ENPICOM allows scientists to apply the sophisticated algorithms to analyze high-throughput sequencing data inside the scalable and intuitive environment. This integration unlocks new antibody discovery workflows like performing structural analysis of proteins of interest and annotating important liability characteristics to select antibody candidates with good developability properties.

“The integration of SAbBox technology with ENPICOM’s IGX platform is great case study for impact from research at the Oxford University. We look forward to this launch as it will provide new ways of accessing the SabPred tools on a cloud-based platform.” said Sandeep Singh, Senior Licensing and Ventures Manager at Oxford University Innovation.
