MannKind Company Profile

14:22 EDT 19th June 2018 | BioPortfolio

MannKind is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of therapeutic products for diseases such as diabetes and cancer. Our lead investigational product candidate, Technosphere® Insulin System, is currently in phase 3 clinical trials in the U.S. and Europe to study its safety and efficacy in the treatment of diabetes. This therapy consists of a proprietary dry powder formulation of Technosphere® insulin that is inhaled into the deep lung using our proprietary MedTone® inhaler. The inhaler is light, easy to use, and fits in the palm of the patient's hand, which is believed to facilitate patient compliance. We believe that the performance characteristics, unique kinetics, convenience and ease of use of the Technosphere® Insulin System may have the potential to change the way diabetes is treated. In particular, we have observed in our clinical trials to date that the Technosphere® Insulin System produces a profile of insulin levels in the bloodstream that approximates the insulin profile normally seen in healthy individuals immediately following the beginning of a meal, but which is absent in all patients with diabetes. As a result, we believe that our Technosphere Insulin System will be beneficial not only for insulin-using diabetes patients but also for patients with type 2 diabetes who are currently using conventional therapies other than insulin. If further clinical trials support our initial observations, we believe the Technosphere Insulin System has the potential to be indicated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes after a patient has failed to respond adequately to diet and exercise. The use of insulin early in the progression of diabetes would represent a paradigm shift in the treatment of this disease.
