Report this content

Intervacc has, together with 3P Biopharmaceuticals and LIOF-Pharma (previously Praxis Pharmaceuticals), completed the manufacturing process for Strangvac. The validation production batches required for the forthcoming registration application to the European Medicines Agency, EMA, are thus finalized.

Submission of a registration application requires manufacturing of two batches in a scale that will be used for commercial production. The drug substance (antigens) for these batches have been produced during the summer and have been included as active components in the vaccine doses that now have been finalized. In total, 60 000 vials with vaccine doses have been manufactured and released.

“The documentation on these two commercial batches is part of the of the dossier that we will submit to the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Now that we have manufactured the vaccine on a commercial scale that meets our specifications, we have passed another very important milestone towards an approved vaccine against strangles.” says Andreas Andersson, CEO of Intervacc

Tim Wood, who has worked intensively with the project, says “We are very pleased with a robust, reliable and efficient manufacturing process.”
