Bayer Broadens Its Manufacturing Basis for Biopharmaceuticals in Tobacco Plants
Date:9/29/2008

Cooperation with Kentucky Bioprocessing for future-oriented technology

LEVERKUSEN, Germany and OWENSBORO, Ky., Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Bayer Innovation GmbH and Kentucky Bioprocessing, LLC (KBP) are collaborating to develop a facility at KBP's Owensboro plant in the US state of Kentucky for the production service of biopharmaceuticals. Based on Bayer's proprietary magnICON(R) technology, plant made pharmaceutical proteins (PMP) and other high-value products will be produced in tobacco plants on commercial scale.

Under terms of the agreement, KBP will adapt its existing cGMP (cGMP = current Good Manufacturing Practice) compliant facility by installing an automated system for high throughput transfection of tobacco host plants. The agreement makes KBP the "preferred production partner" for the application of magnICON(R), an innovative technology for the fast high-yield production of proteins in tobacco plants.

Bayer has internal product development projects - for example a vaccine for the therapy of Non-Hodgkin-Lymphoma - based on the magnICON(R) platform. Beyond that Bayer is also in the process of licensing out this technology to several parties. "To accelerate these applications of this technology, we decided to team up with an experienced external manufacturer, and KBP, with its excellent facilities and highly qualified personnel is the best choice in our view," said Dr. Detlef Wollweber, General Manager of Bayer Innovation.

"Bayer and its subsidiary, Bayer Innovation, are among the highest regarded participants in the PMP sector," said KBP Chairman Hugh Haydon. "Our association with them is not only important for the growth of KBP, but we believe is also significant in the evolution and development of the PMP industry in Owensboro and worldwide."

Construction on the magnICON(R) related improvements at KBP is scheduled to begin in October 2008. Completion and initial testing of the new facilities is planned for spring of 2
