Pulmatrix, Inc. is a clinical stage biotechnology company developing and commercializing a novel inhaled dry powder drug platform to create a new generation of inhaled therapeutics. The platform, called iSPERSE™ (inhaled small particles easily respirable and emitted), enables drugs to be delivered in inhaled dry powders with unique properties for high drug loading and highly efficient dispersibility and delivery to the airways. iSPERSE can create dry powder formulations with virtually any drug substance, including small molecules, biologics and multi-drug combinations, as well as the company's proprietary iCALM™ (inhaled Cationic Airway Lining Modulators) inhaled therapies. Pulmatrix's lead iCALM drug candidate, PUR118, is in human clinical efficacy studies in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis. The Company is pursuing both proprietary and partnered applications for iCALM and iSPERSE. For additional information about Pulmatrix, please visit www.pulmatrix.com.
