About Us

ProFactor Pharma Limited (PFP) is a UK based company formed in 2009 by Professor J H McVey and Dr Ian Garner, who had been working with rhFVIII for over 25 years, together with Co-founders Richard Cruse, Bruce Vernon and Hugh Ilyine building a team with many years of biotech experience.

FVIII is a large, complex and inherently unstable protein, requiring particular skills and know-how in its handling and production. PFP has these skills.

PFP has developed a commercial, Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) compatible rhFVIII producing cell-lines in our laboratories near Edinburgh.
