Xintela GMP inspection for manufacturing license completed

Lund, Sweden, 12 April 2021 - Xintela announces today completion of the inspection by the Swedish Medical Products Agency for a license to produce cell therapy products, also known as Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs), for clinical studies.

Xintela has developed and patented the stem cell product platform XSTEM and built its own GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) compliant facility for the production of ATMPs. As previously announced, the Company has applied for a license to produce ATMPs for clinical studies. The inspection was performed by the Swedish Medicinal Products Agency to ensure that the GMP facility, the production process and the cell therapy product meet the requirements of GMP and that the documentation requirements for an ATMP are followed. After a manufacturing license is granted, Xintela will produce XSTEM for the knee osteoarthritis clinical trial planned to start this year and for other clinical studies.

“We are really pleased with the inspection, which took three days to complete. We were well prepared and the team carried out the inspection in a very professional manner. The inspectors identified a few non-critical  questions that we will respond to before the Medical Products Agency issues the manufacturing license. This is a hugely important step forward for Xintela and a fantastic achievement by our team,” says Xintela's CEO Evy Lundgren-Åkerlund.
