IntelGenx site secures GMP compliant rating from Health Canada for manufacturing and packaging activities

IntelGenx's site has secured an amended Drug Establishment License (DEL) for manufacturing activities after a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) inspection carried out by Health Canada.

The Company successfully achieved a GMP compliant rating, allowing the site to conduct licensable commercial manufacturing and packaging activities of finished dosage forms.

The Health Canada GMP audit included a thorough review of the existing quality management systems, supplier management, controls of raw materials, documentation, equipment, processes and engineering.

No critical deficiencies preventing a GMP Compliant rating were identified. IntelGenx intends to respond with a plan to address Health Canada's initial inspection observations within the next 30 days.

"Health Canada's amended DEL represents a major achievement for our Company and, as it was the last milestone before we could initiate manufacturing at our new state-of-the-art facility," said Dr. Horst G. Zerbe, President and CEO of IntelGenx.

"It also marks a key step towards the commercialization of our products. For example, the amended DEL will support applications to transfer the manufacturing of RIZAPORT®, our proprietary oral thin-film formulation of rizatriptan for the treatment of acute migraines, from Europe to IntelGenx' site."
