PARI Pharma Presents Study Results of Sinus Delivery and Inhaled Liposomal Ciclosporin A at European Cystic Fibrosis Conference


6/15/2007 10:46:49 AM

MUNICH, Germany, June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- PARI Pharma will present in-vivo study results for their PARI SINUS pulsating drug delivery system as well as lung deposition and pharmacokinetic data of their proprietary inhaled liposomal Ciclosporin A formulation in lung transplant patients at the European Cystic Fibrosis Conference (ECFC) in Belek, Turkey this week.

Continuing their tradition of developing highly advanced inhalation delivery platforms, PARI has created a pulsating sinus drug delivery system to target the upper respiratory tract. Study results at ECFC will focus on visual deposition results using dynamic 81mKr-gas ventilation imaging.

In a separate poster presentation, study results will be presented showing lung deposition and pharmacokinetics of inhaled Ciclosporin A given to 12 lung transplanted patients using PARI Pharma's proprietary liposomal platform technology delivered via a customized eFlow electronic nebulizer. Inhaled Ciclosporin A is a potential therapy for lung transplant patients that is hoped to improve survival rates while reducing side effects by targeting drug delivery of a Ciclosporin A formulation with eFlow so that lower doses of drug may be effective. Using a vibrating membrane, eFlow can produce aerosols with a very high density of active drug, a precisely defined droplet size, and a high proportion of respirable droplets delivered in the shortest possible period of time.
