Northway Biotechpharma


Vilnius, Lithuania, and Lund, Sweden - December 20th, 2019 – Northway Biotechpharma, a leading biopharmaceutical Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO), and Hansa Biopharma, the leader in immunomodulatory enzyme technology for rare IgG-mediated diseases, today announced a new service agreement to develop the next generation of IgG cleaving enzymes.

Under the terms of this agreement, Northway Biotechpharma will transfer the process developed by Hansa Biopharma to its state-of-the-art R&D and cGMP manufacturing facility to perform further process optimization work. Subsequently, the process will be scaled-up for cGMP manufacturing of the Drug Substance including the production of the Drug Product for Hansa Biopharma´s clinical studies.

Dr. Vladas Bumelis, Executive Chairman of the Board of Northway Biotechpharma, said, “We have developed a strong and successful partnership with Hansa Biopharma over the years and we are happy to extend this cooperation by supporting the development of their new drug candidate”.

“This second project which we will run for Hansa Biopharma will certainly benefit from the manufacturing process and the analytical panel synergies resulting from the previous project. Additionally, our capability as a true one-stop-shop CDMO will add to the smooth execution of all CMC-activities,” added Dr. André Markmann, VP Business Development of Northway Biotechpharma.

Søren Tulstrup, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hansa Biopharma, commented: “We greatly value our professional relationship with Northway Biotechpharma and this project is a cornerstone in developing the next generation of IgG cleaving enzymes to potentially enable repeat dosing in relapsing autoimmune diseases and oncology”.
