Vectura headquarters in Chippenham, UK (Vectura)

Vec­tura leans in­to new role as in­hala­tion CD­MO post-asth­ma flop with plant ex­pan­sion

Two years af­ter its lead­ing asth­ma ther­a­py flopped in a Phase III study, the UK’s Vec­tura switched gears to fo­cus on man­u­fac­tur­ing in­hal­able drugs for oth­er bio­phar­ma com­pa­nies. Now, it’s dou­bling down on that man­u­fac­tur­ing an­gle with a new ex­pan­sion at its UK pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties.

Vec­tura un­veiled this week an ex­pan­sion of its ca­pa­bil­i­ties to han­dle and de­vel­op high­ly po­tent ac­tive phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal in­gre­di­ents (API) at its head­quar­ters in Chip­pen­ham, Eng­land. The project will in­clude in­stalling six new con­tain­ment iso­la­tors, which will house de­vel­op­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing equip­ment for dis­pens­ing, blend­ing, co-milling, jet-milling, spray-dry­ing and blis­ter-fill pack­ag­ing — turn­ing the fa­cil­i­ty in­to a new­ly-mod­eled prod­uct de­vel­op­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing lab.
