Nano-enabled nasal spray for osteoporosis
Date:2/17/2012

The University of Nottingham spin-out company, Critical Pharmaceuticals, has announced a 545,000 collaboration with the University to develop a nano-enabled intranasal formulation of teriparatide for the treatment of osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis affects an estimated 75 million people in Europe, US and Japan with more than 180,000 patients suffer fragility fractures in the UK alone each year, at a cost of around 2 billion to the NHS.

Teriparatide, an excellent recent addition to the range of drugs used for the treatment of osteoporosis, but it currently needs to be injected every day. The consortium will exploit a recent discovery in nanotechnology to develop a nasal spray formulation of teriparatide that is easy to administer by patients and provides optimal drug plasma levels to enhance efficacy.

The Technology Strategy Board and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) are supporting this project with grant funding as part of their investment in nanoscale technology-enabled solutions in healthcare.

Critical Pharmaceuticals CriticalSorb nanotechnology is a best in class absorption promoter that enables the nasal delivery of biological and challenging small molecule drugs. Biological drugs represent a $100 billion market, and yet nearly all need to be administered by frequent injection. CriticalSorb has the potential to transform the delivery of biological drugs by enabling non-invasive delivery that would be strongly preferred by patients. Critical Pharmaceuticals lead product is a nasal formulation of human growth hormone (CP024) that uses CriticalSorb and is currently in phase 1 clinical development.

Critical Pharmaceuticals is an emerging biotechnology company. CEO, Dr Gareth King, said: "We are excited about working with internationally-recognised clinicians and scientists at The University of Nottingham and Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust to rapidly develop this highly innovative
