Recro Gainesville Adds New Facility, Broadens Capabilities With High-Potent Processing on Deck

Gainesville, Ga., Nov. 5, 2018 (Business Wire) – Recro Gainesville has added a 24,000-square-foot facility, which includes high-potent material processing space, near its existing 97,000-square-foot contract pharmaceutical development and manufacturing plant. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Recro Pharma, Inc., and a leading provider of solid oral dose development and manufacturing services for the pharmaceutical industry.

The expanded capabilities will allow Recro Gainesville to provide clients with a broader range of contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) services, from benchtop through commercialization. Clients can obtain manufacturing services ranging from formulation and development through clinical trial material (CTM) production for Phase I and beyond.

In addition, a specialized area within the new site will be opened by the end of the year to support clients with development through commercialization for high-potency compounds, a rapidly expanding category of pharmaceuticals, which includes many immune modulation and anti-cancer agents.

“The new square footage allows for early feasibility studies, enabling clients to quickly determine the best formulation path forward at laboratory scale, and subsequent scale-up to the GMP manufacture of CTMs,” said Scott Rizzo, general manager of Recro Gainesville. “This added development capability will save our clients both time and resources.”

“Also, by adding high-potency capabilities, we are continuing to provide our clients with the most comprehensive, highest-quality services in the business,” added Heather N. Sugrue, VP sales and marketing.

The existing Recro Gainesville site is a GMP, DEA-licensed CDMO facility that encompasses an oral dosage formulation, process and analytical development space as well as GMP drug product manufacturing facilities for product development, clinical trial materials and commercial finished product.

Overcoming research challenges with Adaptive Trials

PCI Pharma Services

There has been cause for concern within the pharmaceutical industry over the last five years, regarding increasing research and development costs, combined with a fall in the number of new drugs brought to market. In an attempt to overcome this issue there has been a significant rise in the use of adaptive clinical trial designs, whilst saving time and money as well as facilitating more effective decision making. One of the biggest challenges that pharmaceutical companies have experienced has been delivering compliant clinical trials supplies across diverse patient populations in the relatively short timeframes that adaptive trial designs require, remaining focused on ensuring that patient compliance and product quality is in no way compromised. This demand has led to the launch of fast response services that support Research and Development in responding to changing dosing regimens mid-trial.
