  • Rentschler Biopharma to provide cGMP manufacturing
    services for mRNA-based vaccine candidate, developed by BioNTech and
    Pfizer against SARS-CoV-2
  • Commercial production will be conducted in Laupheim,
    Germany
  • Rentschler Biopharma’s innovative and highly flexible
    business model enables fast, high-quality, large-scale manufacturing for
    commercial supply as well as small batch production for clinical trials
    for other BioNTech RNA product candidates

LAUPHEIM, GERMANY and MILFORD, MA, USA – EQS Newswire
– 8 October 2020 – Rentschler
Biopharma SE
, a leading global contract development and manufacturing
organization (CDMO) for biopharmaceuticals, today announced an agreement to
serve as CDMO partner for BioNTech. As an initial project, Rentschler Biopharma
will be responsible for key aspects of cGMP (current good
manufacturing practice)
 drug substance manufacturing of BNT162b2, the
mRNA-based vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 that is being developed by Pfizer and
BioNTech, and is currently in a global Phase 3 clinical trial.

 

Under the agreement, Rentschler Biopharma will
be responsible for downstream processing to provide highly
purified drug substance. Process and product-related impurities will be
effectively removed from the intermediate pool, which has been previously
derived from mRNA synthesis. This is an important step in ensuring the safety
and tolerability of a vaccine for use in humans, while at the same time
maximizing the amount of mRNA harvested from the initial production process.
Rentschler Biopharma will produce purified drug substance at its headquarters
in Laupheim, Germany.

Dr. Frank Mathias, CEO of Rentschler Biopharma,

their work in developing this highly innovative mRNA vaccine. To tackle the
COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical to bring high-quality, safe and effective
vaccines to the public quickly and on a large scale. At Rentschler Biopharma,
we feel it is important to do our part in combatting this virus. As a cGMP
service provider with more than 40 years of proven manufacturing expertise, we
are well suited to work with BioNTech to make their ground-breaking science a
medical reality and will work tirelessly to this end.”

Federico Pollano, SVP Global Business
Development of Rentschler Biopharma, added: “We are excited to
have the opportunity to work with BioNTech on this urgent project, as well as
over the long term. A critical success factor in all the projects we take on at
Rentschler Biopharma is close collaboration with our clients. Working in
partnership with BioNTech, we determined that the best way to address their
COVID-19 vaccine drug substance manufacturing needs was to establish a
dedicated mRNA production suite for them in our Laupheim facility. This
approach ensures capacity, staff and equipment are ready when needed without
interruption of other ongoing projects at our site. It is also an approach that
is quickly and easily scalable to meet future demands.”
