Nanologica has completed the first study within the tox program for the inhalation platform NLAB Spiro®. The program now continues with further studies.
NLAB Spiro® is Nanologica’s technology platform for inhalation. To validate the safety of the platform, toxicity studies are conducted in several steps and the first study has now been completed. Results from the sub-study are expected to be presented during the third quarter.
During the second half of the year, the program continues with more studies, including studies with interesting APIs for inhalation, in order to demonstrate the versatility of the platform and to identify candidates for further development. The first preclinical Proof of Concept studies are expected to be completed in 2021.

About NLAB Spiro®
NLAB Spiro® is Nanologica’s technology platform for inhalation. The platform is constituted of biologically degradable nanoporous silica particles that can be loaded with APIs inside the pores of the particles. The particles are spherical, non-aggregating and appears as a free-flowing powder. The aerodynamical properties are tailored for inhalation and the particle size ranges between 2 µm and 5 µm, which means they can reach a desired part of the lung – the smaller the particle, the deeper into the lung it can reach. Once reaching the lung, the API is released giving a treatment effect locally. NLAB Spiro™ can improve solubility and/or the bioavailability of an API, protect an API from degradation, provide a controlled release profile, and enable local treatment with lowered systemic effects, which creates new treatment options for lung diseases.
