· Potential for developments in allergy, asthma, and ophthalmology
· Marinosolv®facilitates the combination of active ingredients
Vienna (Austria), March 9th2020. Marinomed Biotech AG, a globally active biopharmaceutical company based in Vienna, has achieved promising results for further areas of application with its Marinosolv®technology platform in preclinical studies. In addition to the lead products Budesolv (phase III study for allergic hay fever successfully completed) and Tacrosolv (phase II study for the treatment of allergic conjunctivitis and dry eye syndrome in preparation)
The new substances are successfully used to treat various diseases such as asthma, inflammatory eye diseases and allergies, either individually or in combination with other drugs. Due to the local application in the eye, lungs or nose, Marinosolv®also offers crucial advantages for these active ingredients. Improved solubility results in higher amounts of the active ingredient at the target location with increased effectiveness even with reduced doses. This facilitates potential new developments especially for fluticasone for the treatment of allergies and asthma, either as monotherapy or in combination with compounds from the class of antihistamines or bronchodilators. Fluticasone as a modern steroid in ophthalmology would be another possible application. Furthermore, mometasone and fluorometholone are interesting alternatives to fluticasone. In addition, the preclinical studies show that Marinosolv®also supports the combination of different active ingredients. In the next step, Marinomed will examine the appropriate strategy for clinical trials and potential markets for these substances.
