UK-based DMW Technology has developed a metered dose, fine droplet inhaler. The nebuliser is energised mechanically by a spring eliminates the need to use a fluorocarbon gas propellant. Droplets of less than 5 micro are produced which is optimal for bloodstream absorption, says the company. It is hoped the technology will be able to deliver drugs which are toxic in the stomach and are currently administered only through intravenous injection.
