Ortho RTi Signs Agreement with a Leading CMO for the Manufacture of cGMP Finished Dosage Form Ortho-R in Preparation for Planned First-in-Human Study

KIRKLAND, Quebec, Sept. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ortho Regenerative Technologies Inc. (CSE: ORTH) (“Ortho RTi” or the “Corporation”), an emerging Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Technology company, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with a leading Contract Manufacturing Organization (“CMO”) operating within the global biopharmaceutical industry to commence work on providing the Corporation with current good manufacturing practice (“cGMP”) finished dosage form quantities of Ortho-R for currently planned clinical trials and strategic partnering initiatives. 

“The initiation of this technology transfer from École Polytechnique to a well-regarded, cGMP-compliant manufacturing site marks an important step forward toward achieving our goal of taking this potentially game-changing technology into the clinic,” commented Ortho RTi’s Executive Chairman and CEO, Dr. Brent Norton.  “Importantly, this will allow us to bypass the development risks associated with going into first-in-human studies by having scalable, cGMP materials.  Also, as we move towards approvals by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for our indications for use, and continue pursuing joint development initiatives with interested industry players, it should help give potential strategic partners confidence that they can rely on high quality, commercial production of Ortho-R.”
