FLUIDDA at ERS2018 in Paris

For the next 5 days the FLUIDDA team will be present at the annual European Respiratory Society conference in Paris. We are looking forward to welcome you at booth 6 in block F. Here you can find out all the latest developments on how our Functional Respiratory Imaging solutions can assist in the development of therapies for patients suffering from lung diseases.

FRI shows clinically meaningful benefits of Bevespi in COPD

We are happy to announce that a few days ago the positive results of AstraZeneca’s Bevespi (LABA/LAMA), compared to placebo have been published in the International Journal of COPD. The study shows how FRI confirmed the strong, homogeneous effect of the innovative co-suspension bronchodilator compared to placebo, as seen in earlier studies. At the same… Continue Reading

FRI and disease characterization: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

A thorough understanding of a pharmaceutical company’s target disease is imperative when it wants to successfully develop and market its respiratory drug. Often, conventional lung function parameters lack the sensitivity and level of detail to fully capture a disease and this leads to very expensive developments in the respiratory field. This is especially the case in… Continue Reading

How is FRI a solution to your research question?

How is FRI a solution to your research question?

  We’ve said it before: the respiratory field is the most expensive one in the pharmaceutical world. The low sensitivity of several clinical biomarkers make it difficult for therapy developers to limit the size of their trails. Similarly, in the clinical domain, high costs occur among others from insensitive or difficult measurements, late detection of… Continue Reading

I:E and breathing control in CF drug delivery – what makes or breaks treatment?

  Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a devastating, chronic disease that affects over 100,000 people worldwide. The consequences patients need to bear with them for the rest of their lives are even more devastating. A CF patient is signed for continuous care, daily treatments, hours of daily physiotherapy sessions and regular hospital check-ups or visits, next… Continue Reading

FRI deposition analysis: when a model becomes a measurement

In the previous blogpost the complexity of delivering inhaled drugs into the lung was discussed. It was shown that functional respiratory imaging is able to give an accurate measurement of the amount of drug reaching the lungs of patients with different respiratory diseases. The accuracy of functional respiratory imaging is not the result of some… Continue Reading
