This case study used literature and professional experts to apply Quality by Design to the designing of a drug substance manufacturing operation for a rituximab biosimilar to be implemented in the BTEC facility. Rituximab is chimeric IgG1 kappa monoclonal antibody (mAb) used for the treatment of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, rheumatoid arthritis and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The drug substance final concentration will contain 25 mg BIOmAb (rituximab biosimilar) per milliliter.
