TFF Pharmaceuticals Announces Acceptance of Late-Breaking Abstract for Presentation at the 44th Annual International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) 2024 Meeting

Presentation will feature initial data from the Company’s ongoing Phase 2 study of Tacrolimus Inhalation Powder (TFF TAC), which is being developed to prevent lung transplant rejection

FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TFF Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: TFFP), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing innovative drug products based on its patented Thin Film Freezing (TFF) technology platform, today announced the acceptance of a late-breaking abstract for presentation at the 44th Annual International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) 2024 Meeting, which will be held in Prague, Czech Republic from April 10-13, 2024.

“Despite the availability of numerous immunosuppressive therapies, the unmet medical need remains high in lung transplantation, which has a 5-year mortality of approximately 50%. New targeted therapeutic approaches are clearly needed that can optimize immunosuppression in the lung while avoiding the dose-limiting toxicities associated with systemically administered immunosuppressive therapies,” said Professor Gregory Snell, Medical Head of Lung Transplant Service at the Alfred Hospital and Lead Principal Investigator of the Phase 2 TFF TAC trial. “Initial data from the ongoing Phase 2 study suggest that TFF TAC, which delivers tacrolimus directly to the lungs, may represent a viable approach in achieving this desired balance, and I look forward to presenting initial data from the Phase 2 trial at the upcoming ISHLT 2024 meeting.”

About TFF TAC  
The ongoing Phase 2 trial of TFF TAC is an open-label study in lung transplant patients who require reduced tacrolimus blood levels due to kidney toxicity. Part A of the trial is a 12-week treatment period, and Part B is an optional safety extension period. Trial endpoints include safety/tolerability, kidney function, and acute allograft rejection.

ABOUT TFF PHARMACEUTICALS’ THIN FILM FREEZING (TFF) TECHNOLOGY

TFF Pharmaceuticals’ proprietary TFF technology allows for the transformation of existing compounds and new chemical entities into dry powder formulations exhibiting unique characteristics and benefits. The TFF process is a particle engineering process designed to generate dry powder particles with advantageous properties for inhalational, as well as parenteral, nasal, oral, topical and ocular routes of administration. The process can be used to engineer powders for direct delivery to the site of need, circumventing challenges of systemic administration and leading to improved bioavailability, faster onset of action, and improved safety and efficacy. The ability to deliver therapies directly to the target organ, such as the lung, allows TFF powders to be administered at lower doses compared to oral drugs, reducing unwanted toxicities and side effects. Laboratory data suggest the aerodynamic properties of the powders created by TFF can deliver as much as 75% of the dose to the deep lung. TFF does not introduce heat, shear stress, or other forces that can damage more complex therapeutic components, such as fragile biologics, and instead enables the reformulation of these materials into easily stored and temperature-stable dry powders, making therapeutics and vaccines more accessible for distribution worldwide. The advantages of TFF can be used to enhance traditional delivery or combined to enable next-generation pharmaceutical products.
