In the News: Aruvant Partners with Aldevron to Provide Key Plasmid Raw Materials Used to Manufacture Pipeline Products
Aruvant Sciences, a private company focused on developing gene therapies for rare diseases, and Aldevron, the leading provider of high-quality plasmid DNA, mRNA and recombinant proteins necessary for vaccines, gene and cell therapy, gene editing and diagnostic applications, announced today that Aldevron will support the development of ARU-1801, Aruvant’s one-time investigational gene therapy for sickle cell disease (SCD), and ARU-2801, a one-time investigational gene therapy for hypophosphatasia (HPP). Aldevron will provide good manufacturing practice (GMP)-grade plasmid for Aruvant’s upcoming ARU-1801 pivotal trial.
Gene and cell therapy developers are contending with the implications of the evolving regulatory environment while trying to progress programs as quickly as possible to address unmet needs and secure first-mover advantage in competitive indications. Regulators are facilitating efforts to truncate development timelines through a series of designations that can expedite programs while also making efforts to implement standardization.
