California Company Creates Medical Device That Could Change the Course of Medicine as We Know It
Date:12/18/2013

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alsa Refinish LLC, a California-based company, has process and utility patent applications in place for a revolutionary medication delivery method.

If successful, Alsa will hold patents for a device that delivers medications and herbal preparations directly into the lungs through vaporization, or "vaping." It incorporates technology used in vaporizing pens and e-cigarettes, and in addition, adds Alsa's proprietary stationary mouth tube design. Alsa's innovative vaporization technology advances have created devices that can precisely measure and deliver medication.

"Vaping the drug would deliver it directly to the smallest areas of the lungs via harmless vapor," explains Ike Banoun, Alsa Refinish LLC president. "Our patents cover vaporizing a wide array of drugs and herbal therapies. The hypodermic needle is 400 years old. It's time it came into the non-invasive electronic world. I bet it will be in the museums of the future."

Alsa's device could vaporize many pharmaceutical drugs, NSAIDs, herbal supplements and vitamins. Good pharmaceutical candidates for vaporization include, but are not restricted to, nitroglycerin, sildenafil (Viagra), antibiotics and active ingredients of cough syrups. Patients that have asthma or cystic fibrosis could replace their inhalers with vaping devices to disinfect and treat the mucus with mucolytics in their lungs. Additionally, diabetic patients could also be delivered insulin via non-parenteral routes instead of taking painful injections.

The drug classes listed on Alsa's patent applications include antipyretic medications for fever reduction; NSAIDs to relieve pain, swelling and inflammation; and both opioid and non-opioid analgesics for pain relief. Heat-stable medications from any of these classes could potentially be administered through vaporization. Readily available treatme
