Oncology therapeutics including ADCs and HPAPIs (Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients) represent one of the fasting growing segments of the pharmaceutical industry. ADCs and HPAPIs require specialized manufacturing facilities and infrastructure to ensure safe handling, manufacture, and delivery of these products. Althea's new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility will include areas dedicated to bioconjugation, formulation, purification, quality control, and aseptic fill finish including lyophilization. This 57,000 square foot facility will enable Althea to offer clients a simplified manufacturing supply chain service from a single United States based location. The facility has been designed for safe handling and manipulation of very low OEL (Occupational Exposure Limit) compounds while maintaining aseptic conditions and GMP compliance. Client projects from early clinical phase through commercial launch and supply will be accommodated at this new facility.

Althea is working with EHS (Environmental Health & Safety) and regulatory agencies to address topics specific to high containment manufacturing in the design, construction, and operation of the new facility.

Jason Brady, Ph.D., Sr. Director and Business Head ADCs, states, "Currently, there is limited capacity of high containment manufacturing in the United States. Althea is excited to make this significant expansion of our service offerings to address the needs of the ADC market as well as other highly potent products. Given our existing core capabilities in complex biologics formulation and aseptic filling, this investment in ADC and HPAPI fill finish manufacturing is a natural progression and logical step for Althea."

Althea took occupancy of the new facility on May 1st, 2015. Construction and retrofitting has already commenced. Althea will be executing services from the new facility as soon as Q2 2016 with full manufacturing activities coming online the first half of 2017.

Sulle orme di Marco Polo, il nostro viaggiatore più illustre che 700 anni fa dedicò un terzo della sua vita all’esplorazione e alla conoscenza dell’Oriente, in un’esperienza straordinaria che poi condivise con tutto il mondo attraverso "Il Milione". E ancora: un film da Oscar ci fa riscoprire la figura di Rudolf Höss, il comandante di Auschwitz che viveva tranquillo e felice con la sua famiglia proprio accanto al muro del Lager; le legge e le norme che nei secoli hanno vessato le donne; 100 anni fa nasceva Franco Basaglia, lo psichiatra che "liberò" i malati rinchiusi nei manicomi.

Inoltre, come si evacua un aereo in caso di emergenza? Il training necessario e gli accorgimenti tecnici; che effetto fa alla psiche il cambiamento climatico? Genera ansia ai giovani; esiste la distinzione tra sesso e genere tra gli animali? In alcune specie sì. Con quali tecniche un edificio può resistere a scosse devastanti?
