MannKind and One Drop Sign Collaboration Agreement to Integrate Bluetooth-Connected Inhaler with Dose Detection into the One Drop Platform
“Earlier this year, One Drop announced clinical data that demonstrated using Afrezza with One Drop provided a significant improvement in A1C levels. We now look forward to integrating automatic dose detection into their platform in order to further evolve the patient experience,” said
“For too long, people with diabetes have been trying to make decisions about what to do and when to do it by looking in the rear-view mirror,” said
Available by prescription, Afrezza® (insulin human) Inhalation Powder is a rapid-acting inhaled insulin indicated to improve glycemic control in adult patients with diabetes mellitus. Afrezza consists of a dry powder formulation of human insulin delivered from a small and portable inhaler. Administered at the beginning of a meal, Afrezza dissolves rapidly upon inhalation to the lung and passes quickly into the bloodstream (in less than one minute). This rapid absorption allows Afrezza to begin reducing blood sugar levels within minutes of administration. Afrezza is available in 4-unit, 8-unit and 12-unit single-dose cartridges of insulin powder that can be used, as prescribed by a health care professional, in combination with other diabetes medications to achieve target blood sugar levels. For Afrezza doses exceeding 12 units, patients may use a combination of existing cartridge strengths. For more information about Afrezza, please visit www.afrezza.com.
