Active Biotech AB (publ) Company Profile

02:13 EDT 23rd September 2018 | BioPortfolio

The Active Biotech of today originated from a research project at Pharmacia now known as the TTS project. In 1991, Pharmacia set up a new research facility in Lund to focus on this work. When Pharmacia merged with Upjohn in 1997, the Lund department was threatened with closure. This was when Active Biotech bought both the facility and the operations, including the 165 or so researchers. The research portfolio included both the TTS and the SAIK projects. By 1996, Active Biotech had also bought SBL Vaccin from the Swedish State. This part of its operations was later sold to UK company PowderJect Pharmaceuticals in 2001. Active Biotech was founded by Bo Håkansson, who left the business in 2000.
