Goodwin Biotechnology Announces Process Development Sub-Contract for an Anthrax Vaccine
Date:6/3/2013

PLANTATION, Fla., June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Goodwin Biotechnology, Inc. (GBI) announced today the award of a sub-contract from Emergent BioSolutions for GBI to conduct some early stage proof-of-concept feasibility process development to investigate concentrating AVA filtrate for storage before the downstream process for BioThrax® (Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed), the only vaccine licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the protection against anthrax disease.  Anthrax is a potentially deadly disease that is caused by the bacteria Bacillus anthracis.  While Anthrax does not spread directly from one infected animal or person to another, it is spread by endospores that are able to survive in harsh conditions for long periods of time, and those spores can lie dormant for years and possibly decades. When the spores are inhaled, ingested, or come into contact with a skin lesion on a host, they may germinate and multiply rapidly in both humans and animals. 

"We're excited about the opportunity to contribute our protein purification as well as processing experience and expertise which have been developed and refined over the last 20 years," noted Muctarr Sesay , PhD, Vice President of Process Development at GBI. "Our goal is to develop process parameters that are amenable to routine GMP production and large-scale manufacturing in an effort to contribute to the production of BioThrax at large scale."

Heidi Nielsen , Process Development Engineer for the Biodefense Division of Emergent BioSolutions said, "This phase of process development is critical to our project. We chose to work with Goodwin Biotechnology based on their Quality Systems and experience with large scale, GMP-compliant protein purification and processing."
