Strategic alliance for the production of antibody drug conjugates.

Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies has announced that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Piramal Healthcare UK Ltd, whereby the two parties will offer the seamless contract development and manufacture of antibody drug conjugates (ADCs), a growing niche in the development of biopharmaceuticals.

The deal will allow customers to benefit from the experience and assets of both organizations, while simplifying the supply chain and vendor management relationships, leading to shorter time to clinic.

Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies is one of the world's leading providers of contract development and manufacturing services for biopharmaceuticals, whilst Piramal is a world leader in antibody drug conjugation.

The combined experience covers work on more than 150 biopharmaceuticals and over 300 batches of ADCs spanning over more than 30 different NCEs, including the world's only FDA-approved ADC.

For Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies, this is part of an ongoing programme to expand its offering in mammalian-based biopharmaceuticals.

The company recently announced an expansion of its cGMP manufacturing facilities at both its RTP, USA and Billingham, UK sites.

Stephen Taylor, Commercial Vice President of Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies said "This strategic alliance with Piramal is an important step for us in bringing a new, high-technology offering to the market place. Our customers will benefit from high quality, consistent material, rapid service and shorter logistical chains, saving time on the critical path of drug development. Piramal is a recognized world-leader in this area and we are delighted to be partnering with them".

Aidan Walker, President Formulations Services, Piramal said "We are delighted to combine with Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies to offer a seamless service to customers for the production of antibody conjugates. Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies has a long track-record in delivering successful biologics programmes, and this alliance will combine strengths from both companies for the benefit of our customers, and ultimately patients".
