PharmaCell has finalized an agreement with ImmunoCellular Therapeutics to support its pivotal Phase III clinical trial in Europe with ICT-107.

Under the terms of the agreement, PharmaCell will perform a Technology Transfer from its US-based contract manufacturing partner to its newly acquired Geleen facility (The Netherlands), and support the subsequent clinical trial with ICT-107.


Andrew Gengos, CEO of ImmunoCellular Therapeutics explained: “We are pleased to engage with PharmaCell who have a proven ability to support companies in establishing a robust manufacturing capability in Europe in line with the strict standards of the regulatory authorities for Phase III and early-stage commercial manufacturing for ATMPs (Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products).”


Alexander Vos, CCEOr of PharmaCell, said: “We are excited that ImmunoCellular Therapeutics, a global leader in cancer immunotherapy, have decided to work with us.

We look forward to support ImmunoCellular in their effort to develop ICT-107 for the benefit of European patients.”
