In addition, we hosted a successful PAI by CBER in April 2011 resulting in Commercial Licensure in June 2011.

Biologics Manufacturing

Biologics Manufacturing

While the experience of Althea’s Biologics Manufacturing group assures that your bulk drug substance will be successfully produced in the most efficient way possible, the integration of the downstream manufacturing steps means that you have just one partner to work with and manage logistics of product and communication.  This all reduces the time, cost, and risk of drug development.  Learn More
