Abstract Production of anti drug antibodies (ADA) in adalimumab treated RA patients is associated with reduced serum adalimumab levels and less clinical response. However, most current assays to measure ADA are unable to detect ADA in complex with adalimumab. Thus, ADA is only measured if antibody production exceeds drug levels in the serum, meaning that ADA formation is underestimated. The aim of this study is to develop a method to detect ADA in the presence of drug. A pH-shift-anti-idiotype Antigen binding test (PIA) was used to enable ADA measurement in the presence of adalimumab. ADA-adalimumab complexes were dissociated by acid treatment and addition of excess rabbit anti-idiotype-F(ab) before neutralization. Rabbit anti-idiotype-F(ab) blocks reformation of ADA-drug complexes by competing with patient ADA for adalimumab binding. Released ADA are measured by an antigen binding test (ABT). The PIA enabled detection of ADA in the presence of large excess of adalimumab and was used to measure ADA in 30 adalimumab treated rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients during the first 28 weeks of treatment. It revealed ADA in 21 out of 30 tested patients, while the ABT detected ADA in only 5 patients. Indicating that an immunogenic reaction towards adalimumab is present in the majority of adalimumab treated patients. Copyright © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
