Pulmatrix Submits IND Application to FDA to Initiate a Phase 2 Trial of PUR3100 Pulmatrix (PULM) Submits IND Application to FDA to Initiate a Phase 2 Trial of PUR3100

Pulmatrix (NASDAQ:), Inc. (PULM), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative inhaled therapies to address serious pulmonary and central nervous system disease, today announced the submission of an investigational new drug (“IND”) application to the United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for PUR3100, an orally inhaled dry powder formulation of dihydroergotamine (“DHE”), under development to treat acute migraine. The PUR3100 formulation uses Pulmatrix’s novel, proprietary dry powder delivery technology, iSPERSE™ to deliver DHE directly into the lungs using a dry-powder inhaler.

Pulmatrix’s IND includes a Phase 2 clinical protocol where safety and preliminary efficacy of PUR3100 will be investigated in patients with acute migraine. The Phase 1 study data were presented at the American Headache Society 65th Annual Meeting in June 2023. Results showed that the pharmacokinetics (“PK”) of PUR3100 were similar to the PK of intravenous (“IV”) DHE with fewer side effects.

Dr. Margaret Wasilewski, Chief Medical Officer of Pulmatrix, commented. “In the U.S. there are approximately 40 million patients with acute migraine needing additional therapeutic options. We are excited to see how this pharmacokinetic differentiation potentially translates into clinical efficacy and safety in the proposed Phase 2 proof-of-concept study. Based on study results seen to date, we believe that PUR3100 using Pulmatrix’s iSPERSE technology could offer a DHE therapy with maximized efficacy, while also providing the convenience of self-administration and reduced systemic side effects.”
