"All formulations tested are stable at room temperature, require no needles, no preservatives, no cold storage and can be shipped anywhere free of the restrictive cold chain distribution systems associated with other vaccines. As a nasal powder, it is patient-friendly and does not require administration by a medical professional. No painful injection could mean greater public acceptance and thus public protection on a broader scale against specific diseases."
"At the corporate level, we are analyzing our business models and exploring strategies to move all our business units forward. We have invested more than $54 million in DelSite and have incurred financial losses over recent years. As a company we are dedicated to funding DelSite's initiatives and programs. The fact that a major pharma company has twice provided us, free of cost, a non-egg based H5N1 bird flu antigen produced under the restriction required for human use, indicates that much of the heavy lifting may be behind us."
