In vitro study at Parma University

In collaboration with the University of Parma, the company conducted an in vitro study: Professor Ruggero Bettini, Director of the Interdepartmental Center for the Innovation of Health Products, conducted a deposition study by measuring the actual capacity of the current prototype to positively influence the administration of a spray drug.

The study was conducted using a cascade impactor that simulates the structure of the human lung, and it confirmed that device-assisted drug delivery resulted in a reduction in the diameter of the drug’s particles, a significant increase in the respirable fraction, and a higher drug deposition at the distal level. As a result, the device has demonstrated the capacity to optimize drug administration by generating a measurable positive effect on deposition in the distal parts of the lung-simulating impactor: these are encouraging results that will be investigated further in the coming months.
