Avid Bioservices to Highlight Recent Successes in Reducing Manufacturing Costs and Novel Ways of Controlling Critical Process Parameters That Lead to Consistent Product Quality at IBC'S Biopharmaceutical Development and Production Conference

Solutions to Increase Lifetime of Purifications Resins to Decrease Production Costs; Successful Utilization of a Quality by Design (QbD) Approach to Identify Critical Process Parameters That Control Critical Quality Attributes (CQAs)

TUSTIN, CA and HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 -- Avid Bioservices, Inc., a subsidiary of Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: PPHM), today announced that it will present two posters at IBC's Biopharmaceutical Development & Production Conference to be held in Huntington Beach, California, February 26 - March 1, 2013. Avid will highlight its expertise in optimizing purification and scale-up processes in order to reduce overall cost of goods for manufactured products and its use of Quality by Design (QbD) experiments to identify important process parameters critical to maintaining a consistent quality product profile. All of the studies were performed at its cGMP manufacturing facility in Orange County, California, to support Avid's manufacturing projects.

"Quality by Design is an important concept in the development of biologics and we have applied these strategies in keeping with industry best standards, to identify critical process parameters (CPPs) and to make continuous production improvements, that reliably produce a high quality product for our clients," said Jeff Masten, vice president of quality for Avid Bioservices. "The concepts and methodology we are using at Avid are the same systems we successfully used at Genentech to achieve high success rates and consistent product quality. We are pleased to be able to integrate this approach into our processes."

The following posters from Avid Bioservices will be on display in the exhibit hall February 27th & 28th, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa Hotel:

"Extending Ceramic Hydroxyapatite (CHT) Column Life at Manufacturing Scale through Small-Scale Optimization"

"Quality by Design Approach Results in the Discovery of a Process Parameter that Increases Afucosylation"

In addition, Avid Bioservices will have representatives at Booth #320 in the main hall.

"Our teams are constantly pursuing new ways to optimize processes and methods to meet the changing needs of advancing programs," said Connie Chang, director of process science for Avid Bioservices. "In both studies being presented, we were able to make significant improvements in manufacturing processes, which resulted in efficiencies that will significantly lower the cost of goods and allow us to better control the quality of the product. Our ongoing QbD projects will evaluate the effect of CPPs on CQAs, as we continue to further optimize and control processes moving toward Phase III clinical trials and commercialization."
