Audentes Therapeutics Announces Launch of New State-of-the-Art Internal cGMP Plasmid Manufacturing Facility
"Four years ago, we began investing in our own industry-leading AAV manufacturing capability, which has proven to be a key competitive advantage, enabling us to rapidly progress our pipeline of promising product candidates," stated
Ensuring access to a reliable supply of high-quality plasmids is a critical aspect of gene therapy development. The new facility supports the company's rapidly advancing neuromuscular pipeline including the potential commercialization of AT132 for the treatment of X-linked Myotubular Myopathy.
The plasmid manufacturing facility is the latest addition to the company's proprietary AAV gene therapy technology platform, which consists of end-to-end internal expertise from vector construct engineering and small-scale research production to state-of the-art large-scale cGMP manufacturing. Internal process and analytical development, fill-finish, and quality control testing capabilities complete the fully-integrated approach to production and release of product candidates for clinical and commercial use. The company's current 1,000-liter scale manufacturing operation provides sufficient capacity for global commercialization of AT132, as well as continued clinical development of pipeline programs, and the facility is sized for expansion to add an additional 8,000 liters of production capacity over time.
