Bionovo ready to shift hot-flash drug manufacturing to Bay Area

Bionovo is under a tight deadline to get its new production facility in Hayward up and running by mid-April.
The Emeryville-based biotechnology company signed a 51,500-square-foot lease early this year and has fast-tracked the build-out to make sure it can start making enough Menerba, a drug for menopause hot-flash symptoms, in time for Phase 3 clinical trials.
Previous attempts to outsource production to facilities in Asia and Colorado left executives concerned about quality, so they decided to set up their own manufacturing site closer to home.
