uniQure B.V. has announced it has commenced build-out of a 55,000 ft2  US manufacturing plant in Lexington, Mass., for the production of commercial grade Adeno Associated Virus (AAV)-based gene therapy products to complement its current EMA-approved site in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The company expects the facility to be operational by early 2015.

The US site will expand the company's current production capacity. Once completed, it is expected to allow uniQure to capitalize on its modular manufacturing platform and leverage its process leadership in commercial grade AAV manufacturing, the company reports.
