MONOSOL RX TO INITIATE HUMAN PROOF-OF-CONCEPT STUDY OF EPINEPHRINE SUBLINGUAL SOLUBLE FILM
WARREN, N.J., January 10, 2017 – MonoSol Rx, a specialty pharmaceutical company leveraging its PharmFilm® drug delivery technology to improve patient outcomes and to address unmet needs, today announced that it is preparing to initiate a human proof-of-concept study of Epinephrine Sublingual Soluble Film (Epinephrine SSF) for the treatment of anaphylaxis.
Epinephrine SSF, based on MonoSol Rx’s proprietary and patented PharmFilm technology, is being developed for use as an emergency treatment for severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis. Epinephrine is typically administered via auto-injection. MonoSol Rx believes that its PharmFilm formulation has the potential to provide significant advantages over other epinephrine administration methods.

We believe this disease state could benefit from a new, safe and easily usable treatment. This proof-of-concept study is the first step in moving Epinephrine Sublingual Soluble Film to the market and providing patients with an attractive treatment option.”
