Enteris BioPharma Publishes White Paper Examining Safe Handling and Manufacture of Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (HPAPI)

Facilities and processes key to protecting workers and the environment, the paper in Drug Development & Delivery says

BOONTON, N.J., June 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Enteris BioPharma, Inc., a biotechnology company developing innovative drug products based on its proprietary delivery technologies, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of SWK Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq: SWKH), announced today the publication of a new white paper entitled, "Protecting Workers and the Environment: Facilities and Processes Key to Making Highly Potent Drug Products."

The paper, coauthored by Angelo Consalvo, Director of Manufacturing for Enteris BioPharma, demonstrates how specialized knowledge, processes and facilities can lead to safer manufacturing of highly potent active pharmaceutical ingredients (HPAPIs) – a fast growing segment in the pharmaceutical sector. The whitepaper is available to download via Drug Development & Delivery at

"HPAPIs require specialized manufacturing capabilities to ensure that the compounds are contained inside the facility and that employees are protected from exposure," Consalvo said. "As a result, there is a shortage of U.S.-based facilities that can handle manufacturing of HPAPI drug products, given the need for specialized containment technologies and heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. Adding to the challenge, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted supply chains and drug makers are assessing the need for U.S.-based partners to ensure they can bring medicines to the market without the logistical logjams."

Consalvo continued, "Enteris' recently renovated manufacturing facility provides an opportunity to capitalize these industry-wide shortcomings in HPAPI solid oral drug product manufacturing, handling and expertise. In particular, we are a CMO optimized to the needs of pharmaceutical and biotech companies that require small batch volumes of clinical trial material while possessing the manufacturing muscle to quickly scale for larger, later-stage clinical programs and commercial activities."

Enteris BioPharma completed the renovation of its Boonton, NJ manufacturing plant, which now encompasses a 32,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility with multiple suites dedicated to HPAPI handling/containment and solid oral dose manufacturing. This technical capacity is complemented by our experience and knowledge working with HPAPIs and low-dose formulations to achieve excellent content uniformity.
