Bronchitol Cystic Fibrosis Dose Trial Results Positive
Date:8/11/2008

itionally, no serious adverse events emerged during the 400 mg treatment period and the adverse event profile was similar across all doses.

People affected by cystic fibrosis typically experience a decline in lung function of 1-2% per year during their life, as measured by FEV1.

Pharmaxis has received Orphan Drug Designation and fast track status from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Bronchitol in cystic fibrosis.

Bronchitol is designed to hydrate the airway surface, improve lung hygiene and promote normal lung clearance. Additional data from this trial will be presented at a forthcoming scientific congress. A European, Pharmaxis sponsored, regulatory Phase III clinical trial, designed to lead to a marketing application for Bronchitol in adults and children with cystic fibrosis is due to report preliminary data early in 2009.

Approximately 75,000 people in the major pharmaceutical markets are affected with cystic fibrosis and no products have been approved to improve lung hydration.
