Cystic Fibrosis - Liposomal Tobramycin Receives Second Orphan Drug Designation Within Weeks

ystem with already established and well-characterized therapeutic agents. The company is using its platform delivery technology, named Fluidosomes(TM) technology, for the development of its lead product, an inhalable liposomal formulation of tobramycin. Axentis Pharma's lead product is designed to treat bacterial infections in the lungs.

About Fluidosomes(TM) technology

Axentis Pharma's Fluidosomes(TM) technology uses biocompatible lipids endogenous to the lung that are formulated into small liposomes. This nanocapsule platform offers wide-ranging potential for unmet medical needs, including chronic respiratory infections of the lung. In the case of Fluidosomes(TM)-tobramycin, the interaction between tobramycin and the microbial cell is triggered when the liposomes undergo a fusion process with the outer membrane of the bacterial cell wall. Tobramycin then penetrates into the inner cell compartment and triggers bacterial cell death.
