Bubendorf, Switzerland: – Peptide technology specialist Bachem AG will be showing its wide range of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and innovative selective glycosylation technology at Europe’s leading pharma fair, CPhI Worldwide.

Bachem’s stand at Booth #7H14 in Hall 7 at the Fira de Barcelona Center will present opportunities to harness its innovative peptide generic APIs and proprietary processes.

Innovative APIs

Bachem is a trusted supplier of peptide and small molecule generics. With over 80 DMF filings and more in the pipeline they support the success of their partners. Its pipeline contains more than 200 customer projects in preclinical and clinical phases. They all have promising potential: in the last two years, a number of products in phase III trials received marketing authorization and phase II projects progressed to pivotal phase III clinical trials.

Selective glycosylation

These include its recently introduced selective chemical glycosylation service, using technology co-developed with GlyTech, Inc., of Japan. The service is applicable to large-scale production with potential application to a variety of peptide-based future drugs.

The process was explained in a recent X-Talks webinar, presented by GlyTech board adviser, Dr. Michael F. Haller, Ph.D., who provided insights on how the selective glycosylation can improve physicochemical properties of peptides.

Pioneering peptide partner

“We are delighted to be returning to CPhI Worldwide,” said Dr. Martina Diekmann, VP Global Marketing, who will be a leading member of the company’s team at the conference.

“Our team will be busy throughout CPhI, using the great networking opportunities to discuss potential collaborations that can harness our outstanding knowledge of peptide and organic chemistry and explaining how our mission ‘Pioneering Partner for Peptides’ can actively support clients through all phases of drug development,” said Dr. Diekmann.

“We have a very strong offer to present, including FDA certified cGMP manufacturing facilities with capacity to produce peptide generic APIs from gram scale up to annual quantities of hundreds of kilograms, along with a very impressive regulatory background that allows us to provide full support with required regulatory documentation,” said Dr. Diekmann.

Bachem will present: “The Bachem Approach to Quality By Design (QBD)” at the Exhibitor Showcase, on October 4, 2016 and is also sponsoring the Innovation Award in the “Global Generics and Biosimilars Awards 2016” category.
