Subject: RE: Information Request - Viral Harvest Spec

I believe the following information addresses the question. 

Agency Question: 
Can you specify the specification for the Viral Harvest Test for ---------------(b)(4)------------------------------------------------------(pg 6 on the draft LRP)?

TWH Response:
 In Amendment #34, response to Question 9.1 (pg 7 of 9) we indicated that the ----(b)(4)--- specification for pre-filtration Bulk Virus (Viral Harvest) as well as final Formulated Virus would be            --------(b)(4)-------  In addition, our response under the section, Assay Changes and Updates, 1.               --(b)(4)-- (pg 8 of 9), we indicated that the -------(b)(4)------------ method would replace the --------------(b)(4)----- method and be implemented for all Bulk Virus and Formulated Virus.  These changes in specification ------(b)(4)------------- and acceptance criteria ----------(b)(4)------ will be implemented with any new batches of Adenovirus Type 4 and Type 7 manufactured by                         ---(b)(4)-----.  However, it must be kept in mind that previously manufactured and released batches of Adenovirus Type 4 and Type 7, either currently in inventory in VA or formulated and currently stored at --(b)(4)--, will have been tested and released using the previous method and acceptance criteria of -----(b)(4)-----.  Thus not until newly manufactured batches enter the pipeline will the new specifications be effective.

Please let me know if you need any additional information.
All the best,
Valerie Mulligan
