New developments further strengthen Bone Therapeutics’ cell product manufacturing capabilities

Updating on the February 15th post, some exciting new developments have recently occurred that further strengthen Bone Therapeutics’ cell product manufacturing capabilities. Following a successful Series D fundraising round, Bone Therapeutics, alongside the Walloon Region and private investors, has invested in Skeletal Cell Therapy Support S.A (SCTS) to fund the construction of a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility based in the Gosselies Scientific Park near Brussels, Belgium. This investment will allow it to produce its unique bone cell therapy products for the treatment of bone diseases under GMP conditions and will also provide SCTS customers with state-of-the-art facilities tailored to meet the specific demands of the cell therapy industry.

In March, the company was awarded ‘Tissue Establishment and ‘GMP’ Accreditation for the manufacturing of its allogeneic bone cell therapy product initially being developed for the treatment of non-union fractures. In addition to the allogeneic platform, Bone Therapeutics also has autologous ‘Production Establishment Accreditation’ and manufacturing authorizations that will enable the company to work on its autologous bone cell product.

With the manufacturing process now fully secured Bone Therapeutics will work in collaboration with the LTCG, the accredited Tissue Bank from the CHU Sart-Tilman based in Liège, Belgium and headed up by Prof. Yves Beguin. Upon completion of construction in 2015, Bone Therapeutics will be headquartered at the Gosselies Scientific Park facility.
