3P Biopharmaceuticals and SpyBiotech enter into a vaccine contract manufacturing agreement

3P Biopharmaceuticals




[Noáin, Spain, October 26, 2020]3P Biopharmaceuticals, a leading Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) specialized in process development and cGMP manufacturing of biologics, has signed a manufacturing agreement withSpyBiotech, a company with a novel vaccine platform to target infectious diseases, cancer and chronic diseases.

Oxford, UK-based SpyBiotech selected 3P Biopharmaceuticals in June 2019 to manufacture a cGMP batch of their virus-like-particle carrier with the goal of completing production in 2021.This carrier will be used to display antigens from different pathogens.

SpyBiotech’s proprietary SpyCatcher/SpyTag is a platform technology which allows antigens to be displayed onto virus-like particles (VLPs) with a covalent, irreversible bond in a highly stable and effective way with specific orientation/epitope presentation and high density. The technology can be used for an exceptionally broad range of applications in vaccine development and has established proof of concept data in viral, bacterial, parasitic diseases as well as chronic diseases and cancer.

As 3P Biopharmaceuticals CEO Dámaso Molero explains: "It is amazing being part of a project which presents an opportunity to develop treatments for a broad range of diseases. We are helping to support manufacturing which we believe will open the door for pioneering vaccines which could offer a hope for improving the lives of many people. That is extremely exciting.”

Genevieve Labbe, Senior Scientist and GMP Project Manager for SpyBiotech commented: “It’s critical to have a trusted partner in place for cell line and cGMP production. SpyBiotech is looking forward to advancing this product and we are delighted to be working with 3P Biopharmaceuticals, a leading CDMO.”

Through this partnership, 3P Biopharmaceuticals will once again demonstrate its capacity to carry out processes and manufacturing of molecules developed for diverse therapeutic applications, helping to consolidate its competitive position as one of the most trusted CDMOs in Europe.

Considerations for Choosing the Right Wearable Drug Delivery System

West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc.

For patients with chronic conditions, the use of injectable biologic therapies is on the rise. Biologics, while providing considerable therapeutic benefit, can also present several challenges for both drug manufacturers and patients. In particular, many biologics are highly viscous and others require large doses to be injected slowly over time. This can make it difficult to deliver a consistent dose every time, potentially impacting medication adherence.
