International Therapeutic Proteins[1] (known as ITP) supplies antitoxins, antidotes to snake venoms and other biologics (biological therapeutics) to corporate and government clients.

Company Info[edit]

The company's manufacturing base is located in the remote but temperate island of Tasmania. This safeguards end products from contamination with BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy).

International Therapeutic Proteins is headquartered in the UK. The UK office functions are primarily administration, distribution and regulatory affairs. The company's Australian subsidiary owns two farms in Tasmania totalling 500 hectares (1,235 acres). The farms are located in Longford, where Selborne Biological Services is also operating.[2]

A dedicated protein separation facility is used for all antitoxin products. This consists of an upstream (pre viral inactivation) suite for the fractionation of IgG from whole serum or plasma and a downstream (post viral inactivation) suite to conduct further processing and formulation of the Fab fragment.
