Mannkind’s inhaled insulin, Afrezza, was approved by the FDA on June 28, 2014. Its Dreamboat inhaler delivers a choice of 4u or 8u capsules of insulin powder. Capsules are prepared by loading insulin molecules onto pH-sensitive carrier particles and then drying and placing the powder into plastic capsules. The aerodynamic properties of the particles delivered by the device scatters the insulin powder deep into the lungs when inhaled. Once these pH sensitive particles contact the neutral pH of the lungs, they become a liquid and quickly absorb through the lung membranes.
