Pharma Tech Industries Selected to Manufacture Innovative Nasal Delivery System for NDA Submission


3/4/2013 10:41:03 AM

ROYSTON, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pharma Tech Industries (PTI), the largest pharmaceutical contract manufacturer and packager of powder products in the world, has been selected to handle filling, assembly and packaging services for a migraine relief medication administered through an innovative new method: a breath-powered nasal delivery system. The drug itself is powder-based, and PTI was chosen for this initiative – which will start as developmental, supporting FDA submission for approval and will continue into commercial –due to the company’s experience handling a broad range of powders, and its ability to vertically integrate the entire production process. The OptiNose delivery system employs a novel means of easily administering drugs deep into the nasal cavity, enabling the treatment of both local and systemic diseases. The new technology offers a much-needed alternative to existing, poor-performing nasal sprays, as well as to tablets and injections (see Page 2 for details). OptiNose has completed Phase III development for a Sumatriptan Succinate medicine that, when taken using its patented device, is expected to shorten the timeframe for relief from migraines when compared to widely used oral migraine medications.
