Optinose is a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on creating and bringing to market innovative products for patients with diseases treated by ear, nose, and throat (ENT) and allergy specialists. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for patients. We are working to accomplish that by becoming the leading specialty healthcare company dedicated to creating innovative products that become standard of care for diseases cared for directly by, or in consultation with, ENT and allergy specialists.
Our first product for these patients uses one of our patented Bi-Directional™ Exhalation Delivery Systems (EDS) to uniquely deliver a potent steroid deep into the nose where inflammation can be hard to reach. Our EDS technology has other applications, such as in treatment of neurological or psychiatric disorders. Although these areas are not our focus, we have already successfully developed and out-licensed one product in that space, and plan to partner with organizations who focus on central nervous system treatments to develop more.
