    Looks like a miniature version of the Exubera bong modified by some Exubera team alumni. It is still bulky, involves transfer of the liquid into the vaporizer and somewhere discreet to do the vaporizing and inhaling. No competition there for the one smooth draw on a whistle-sized Dreamboat device no one even notices if you hold it in the palm of your hand. I am fairly certain MNKD holds the patents on the rapid-acting monomer form of insulin that makes AFFREZZA so uniquely effective. Technospere dissolves instantly on contact with the lung tissue and is gone. What happens with a mist of insulin liquid? It has to raise questions about long term lung effect since it will undoubtedly linger longer in the lung tissue than Technospere.

    I fail to see how a mist would not generate a cough reflex if one has that tendency. No information at all on the insulin formulation, dose control, time to peak and tail, etc. There are many FDA hurdles to overcome for this johnny-come-lately. Much ado over nothing it looks like to me.as far as serious competition goes.

    Sentiment: Buy
