Hovione Technology acquires global rights to new pulmonary inhaler device15 Apr 2019
The Papillon DPI is a single-part, blister-based, reusable inhaler, suitable for both chronic and acute treatments.
Hovione Technology has secured global rights to develop and commercialize a new ultra-affordable, multi-use blister-based dry powder inhaler (DPI) patented by inventor Dr Klaus-Dieter Beller. The two parties will continue to collaborate on the inhaler, which will be marketed as the Papillon DPI.
The Papillon DPI is a single-part, blister-based, reusable inhaler of extreme simplicity, suitable for both chronic and acute treatments. It can accommodate a single or double blister configuration, enabling ultra-affordable drug therapies at global scale.
Papillon unlocks a paradigm shift for pharmaceutical companies developing new inhaled drugs: unit dose costs competitive to multi-dose inhalers at a fraction of the development cost and risk associated with complex devices.
Hovione Technology’s CEO Peter Villax said: “This is a strategic DPI development for Hovione Technology which emphasizes our long-term commitment to offer market access to a portfolio of innovative inhalers that maximize simplicity of use, drug delivery performance and cost-effectiveness on a truly global scale. We are delighted to accelerate commercialization of this innovative blister DPI”.
Hovione Technology has a co-promotional agreement with API manufacturer Hovione and together they are able to provide access to a complete portfolio of innovative DPI devices integrated with inhalation API, formulation development and industrial manufacturing to pharmaceutical companies focusing on inhaled drugs.
