TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 03/19/13 -- Trimel Pharmaceuticals Corporation (TSX: TRL) (the "Company" or "Trimel") today announced that. Trimel Biopharma SRL ("Trimel SRL"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Trimel, has entered into an agreement to partner with a privately-held European company to develop single dose and fixed dose combinations of a portfolio of established active pharmaceutical ingredients for the treatment of a variety of respiratory disorders utilizing Trimel SRL's award-winning inhalation technology, called TriVair.
As part of this transaction, Trimel SRL will gain rights to all know-how and intellectual property developed for the applicable products for territories outside of the European Union, Russia and Ukraine. Trimel SRL's development partner will be granted rights to the products developed under the agreement in these markets. Royalties will be payable by the parties to each other in connection with revenues received by each party (or any licensees) in their respective territories in connection with any developed products developed under the agreement.
TriVair is a disposable, single unit dose, dry powder inhalation drug delivery technology platform with applications for both nasal and pulmonary dosing. TriVair, through in vitro cascade impactor studies, demonstrated that it may provide patients suffering from respiratory disorders with up to 2.5 times greater drug deposition in the lung as compared to metered dose inhalers. It is hoped that greater lung deposition of medications will result in equal efficacy to currently marketed asthma medications with reduced drug load. TriVair is also designed to provide patients and their caregivers with immediate visual feedback to ensure that the dose has been accurately administered.
