Sympfiny

Sympfiny is a system for dosing and oral delivery of multi-particulate, dry powder and microsphere drug formulations in low-resource settings. According to the World Health Organization, almost 3 million children needlessly die from pneumonia and diarrhea each year. Drugs for the treatment of pneumonia are available in developing countries, but not in the recommended dose or formulation. Multi-particulates, nano-sized bead-like drug formulations akin to microspheres, can solve this problem. However, the delivery of multi-particulate drugs to children has previously required unfamiliar procedures and limited one-size-fits-all doses. Sympfiny eliminates these problems because it uses the same method of dosing as traditional oral syringes.
