Avid Bioservices has entered a partnership with the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) to support the manufacture of adeno-associated adenovirus (AAV) and other cell and gene therapy (CGT) programmes.
Avid became part of the Industry Resource Partner Programme of CIRM and will offer its development and CGMP manufacturing services for programmes funded by CIRM.
The company also plans to provide its contract development and manufacturing service suite to facilitate CIRM’s partners in the development and production of gene therapies.
These services comprise process and analytical development, virus banking, cell banking, production of drugs and fill-finish works.
The CIRM-funded programmes will gain access to Avid’s services to cut down the time needed to advance to the clinic.
The parties intend to carry out all the collaboration-linked works at Avid’s CGT CGMP manufacturing facility in Orange County, California, US.
