About Takeda Neuchâtel Biotech Manufacturing Site
With over 600 collaborators, Takeda Neuchâtel is one of the major biotech manufacturing sites in western Switzerland. The Neuchâtel plant is dedicated to manufacturing three hemophilia treatments. For the past twenty years, the site has been manufacturing the first ever commercialized recombinant “Factor VIII” treatment free of blood and plasma proteins. “Factor VIII” is a protein that is missing or deficient in patients with hemophilia A coagulation deficiencies. A long-lasting version of “Factor VIII” is also manufactured in Neuchâtel. More recently, Takeda Neuchâtel has initiated the production of the first and only “recombinant” treatment for Von Willebrand disease, a rare form of hemophilia. This new product is now entering international markets. Manufacturing such products requires a wide range of competencies and industrial skills due to their high sensitivity. This is what you will discover during this 4à6 event.
