Welcome to MannKind Board!!!

About MannKind Corporation

MannKind Corporation (Nasdaq: MNKD) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of therapeutic products for patients.

AFREZZA® (pronounced uh-FREZZ-uh) is a rapid-acting inhaled insulin indicated to improve glycemic control in adults with diabetes. AFREZZA was approved by the FDA in 2014. MannKind has a global licensing agreement with Sanofi for the development and commercialization of AFREZZA. Sanofi is responsible for global commercial, regulatory and development activities and. MannKind manufactures AFREZZA at its manufacturing facility in Danbury, CT.

AFREZZA utilizes our proprietary Technosphere® formulation technology , which is based on a class of organic molecules that are designed to self-assemble into small particles onto which drug molecules can be loaded.  We believe Technosphere represents a versatile drug delivery platform that may allow pulmonary administration of certain drugs that currently require administration by injection, such as GLP-1. Pulmonary administration provides convenience for the patient and we believe a major advantage of drugs inhaled as Technosphere formulations is that they have been shown to be absorbed very rapidly into the arterial circulation, essentially mimicking intra-arterial administration. MannKind is also developing other inhalation technologies, including an innovative line of patient-focused, breath-activated, dry powder inhalers and inhalation profiling to characterize patient inhalation.
