    MEGGLE launching new InhaLac® 145 milled DPI lactose at DDL Edinburgh

    Wasserburg, Germany: – Pharmaceutical lactose specialist MEGGLE will use the Drug Delivery to the Lungs (DDL) Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, to launch InhaLac® 145 as the latest addition to its wide range of lactose-based dry powder inhalation (DPI) excipients.

    MEGGLE has a long-standing relationship with the DDL conference, having been a consistent supporter and Silver Sponsor for several years.

    Increasing specificity

    For 2023, MEGGLE will again be a prominent exhibitor with a stand at Booth 173 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. InhaLac® 145 will be a centerpiece of the MEGGLE display of its sieved, milled and micronized DPI grade excipients.

    With its mean particle size of 35 µm, the new excipient bridges the small gap between the DPI milled lactose monohydrates InhaLac® 140 (50 μm) and InhaLac® 150 (24 μm) that were themselves launched at a previous DDL conference. This latest addition to an already comprehensive milled lactose range demonstrates MEGGLE’s strategy of offering ever more specific particle size distribution to meet the increasingly sophisticated needs of DPI drug formulators.

    Scientific presentations

    MEGGLE will also contribute to the DDL 2023 scientific agenda with two poster presentations from researchers who are PhD students at Kiel University, supported by MEGGLE colleagues.

    Jana Schembera and Regina Scherließ of Kiel University will present a poster on ‘Spray drying of mRNA lipoplexes to produce an inhalable dry powder formulation for mRNA vaccination’, with contributions from MEGGLE Business Development Manager Inhalation, Dr. Constanze Müller,  and Head of R&D, Ricarda Leister.

    Prof. Scherließ will also present a second poster, on ’The role of mechanical properties in DPI Carriers’, authored by Zeredescht Majid, again with support from Mrs. Leister and Dr. Müller.
