Inverseon's INV102 Asthma Product Discussed at the European Respiratory Society


9/22/2009 12:15:48 PM

San Francisco, CA, Sept 22, 2009 – A symposium was held last week at the European Respiratory Society’s annual meeting in Vienna, Austria entitled, “Beta-blockers may now be beneficial in asthma and COPD."

“It is remarkable how far Inverseon’s asthma program has advanced in the past couple of years. We now have data from two clinical trials and evidence is accumulating that INV102 is showing pre-clinical activity with respect to each of the major hallmarks of asthma: Airway hyperresponsiveness, inflammation, and mucous hypersecretion,” stated Amie E. Franklin, PhD of Inverseon.

“The symposium at an international respiratory conference demonstrated that the approach of using certain beta-blockers in asthmatics is gaining increasing scientific and clinical recognition,” stated Richard A. Bond, scientific founder of Inverseon and Prof. of Pharmacology at the University of Houston.

“The presentations very much support the clinical development of our proprietary controlled-release oral formulation, INV102CR. We believe that INV102CR may provide an important steroid sparing treatment option in an oral dosage form,” said William J. Garner, MD, Chairman of Inverseon.

About Inverseon, Inc.
