SpectrumX Partners With Leading UK Specials Group to Accelerate Production of Anti-Pathogenic Drug for Clinical Trials

  • Partner will manufacture SpectrumX’s SPC-069-based product for clinical trials, shortening the path to commercialisation
  • New medical product is a forthcoming ground-breaking treatment for respiratory infections, including COVID-19, influenza, the common cold and others

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SpectrumX, a UK-based healthcare and pharmaceutical company, today announces its partnership with a leading UK-based specials contract manufacturing group with global reach to advance the production of its ground-breaking anti-pathogenic medicine for use in its planned Phase I clinical trials. This group has unparalleled experience working with pharmaceutical companies in MHRA-compliant medicine production.

SpectrumX plans to use its partner’s Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)-certified facility to produce SPX-001, the medical product based on the SPC-069 drug substance, for clinical trials. SPX-001 is a potential novel treatment, based on hypochlorous acid (HOCl), for respiratory infections and is a new drug candidate for Europe with broad-spectrum anti-pathogenic properties. SpectrumX will continue to produce its proprietary HOCl chemistry, essential to SPX-001’s success, at its production facility in Knutsford.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) requires that drugs for trials must be manufactured in a GMP approved facility. SpectrumX’s chosen partner is a leader in contract drug development and manufacturing services and possesses the expertise required to streamline the roll-out of the production of the SPX-001 investigational medicinal product for use in SpectrumX’s clinical trials programme. By partnering in this way, SpectrumX will be well-prepared for an upcoming MHRA scientific advice meeting.

Damien Hancox, Chief Executive Officer of SpectrumX, said: “I am pleased to announce our partnership with an established leader in the manufacture and production of drugs for clinical trials. This partnership will hasten the process of getting SPX-001, our SPC-069-based medical product, to clinical trials and may provide us an opportunity to commercialise our lead pharmaceutical product in a shorter time frame.”
