Keele, UK: Cobra Biomanufacturing Plc (AIM: CBF), the international manufacturer of biopharmaceuticals, today announces that it has entered into a manufacturing development agreement with an undisclosed pharmaceutical company to produce a protein from the SARS virus in CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovary) cells under cGMP.
