About MannKind Corporation

MannKind Corporation (Nasdaq: MNKD) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of therapeutic products for patients with diseases such as diabetes.

AFREZZA® (pronounced uh-FREZZ-uh) is a rapid-acting inhaled insulin indicated to improve glycemic control in adults with diabetes.AFREZZA was recently approved by the FDA. The product consists of AFREZZA Inhalation Powder single-use dose cartridges, and the small, discreet and easy-to-use AFREZZA Inhaler.Because of its unique pharmacokinetic profile, AFREZZA is a promising new therapy for adult patients with diabetes.

AFREZZA utilizes our proprietary Technosphere® formulation technology , which is based on a class of organic molecules that are designed to self-assemble into small particles onto which drug molecules can be loaded.  We believe Technosphere represents a versatile drug delivery platform that may allow pulmonary administration of certain drugs that currently require administration by injection, such as GLP-1. Pulmonary administration provides convenience for the patient and we believe a major advantage of drugs inhaled as Technosphere formulations is that they have been shown to be absorbed very rapidly into the arterial circulation, essentially mimicking intra-arterial administration. MannKind is also developing other inhalation technologies, including an innovative line of patient-focused, breath-activated, dry powder inhalers and inhalation profiling to characterize patient inhalation.
