Oligonucleotide Standards

Synthetic oligonucleotides are an emerging class of therapeutics that target diseases by mediating RNA functions. Oligonucleotides have already demonstrated great promise in the treatment of neurological disorders, metabolic diseases, cancers, and other diseases. However, due to the rapid growth and advancement of this therapeutic class, there is limited published guidance from regulatory agencies on quality control of oligonucleotide drugs. To bridge the gaps in guidance, USP now offers standards to support quality assessment of critical raw materials used in oligonucleotide synthesis. These standards also aid in navigating the current regulatory landscape concerning the assessment of product-related impurities that may impact safety and efficacy.

Raw Material Testing

Phosphoramidites are modified nucleosides used in the chemical synthesis of oligonucleotides. Synthetic oligonucleotides often contain low levels of multiple classes of impurities which can ultimately influence their efficacy and toxicity.

USP has developed DNA phosphoramidites reference standards that can help manufacturers identify and control impurity profiles during oligonucleotide synthesis using various analytical techniques, including HPLC, 31P NMR, GC, and LC-MS. Ultimately these standards may help yield better control over manufacturing process.

The DNA phosphoramidites reference standards can support the quality assessment of raw materials throughout the life cycle from oligonucleotide products development to lot release.
