· New data on flutiformk-haler (125/5 microgram), Mundipharma's novel breath-triggered aerosol inhaler currently under development, demonstrating efficient drug delivery characteristics

o flutiform k-halerachieved high levels of lung deposition of over 44% of delivered dose

o Plume force of flutiform k-haler was compared with fluticasone propionate/salmeterol xinafoate delivered via the Seretide Evohaler pMDI and Sirdupla pMDI deviceso Pharmacokinetic studies show efficacy and safety profile of new flutiform k-haler device would be comparable to flutiform pMDI device
