Nasal Spray Product is Disruptive Innovation for People at Risk of Anaphylaxis
Raleigh, NC – October 10, 2019 – Bryn Pharma, LLC (“Bryn”) is a privately held pharmaceutical company dedicated to finding a better way for patients and caregivers to treat anaphylaxis. Bryn has developed an epinephrine nasal spray, a disruptive innovation designed to replace the currently approved epinephrine auto-injector. Over the last three years, Bryn has conducted extensive preclinical and clinical trials of its Intranasal Epinephrine Spray (BRYN-NDS1C), which is easy-to-use, needle-free and completely portable. Bryn’s novel intranasal drug delivery device has already been approved for use in other indications by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In early 2019, the Company submitted an Investigational New Drug (IND) application for BRYN-NDS1C with the FDA and was granted Fast Track Designation. Bryn has successfully completed the required Pilot Studies and has completed dosing in its Pivotal Clinical (human) Trial.
“We are pleased to report that Bryn’s clinical development program for BRYN-NDS1C has met all milestones to-date,” said David Dworaczyk, Ph.D., CEO of Bryn Pharma. “The product demonstrated comparable pharmacokinetics to an intramuscular injection of epinephrine in our Pilot Clinical (human) studies. We are looking forward to the results of our Pivotal Trial shortly.”

Anaphylaxis is a serious, life-threatening allergic reaction. The most common anaphylactic reactions are to foods, insect stings, medication and latex.1 A major difference between anaphylaxis and other allergic reactions is that anaphylaxis typically involves more than one system of the body.2 Anaphylaxis requires immediate medical treatment, driving approximately 100,000 emergency room visits in the U.S. each year.1,3 Because 30 percent of patients who develop anaphylaxis will require a second dose of epinephrine to control symptoms, practice parameters recommend that physicians provide patients with two auto-injectors.4 If not treated properly, anaphylaxis can be fatal.2
