TFF Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: TFFP), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing innovative drug products based on its patented Thin Film Freezing (TFF) technology platform, announced today that is has selected LaVoieHealthScience (LHS) as its investor relations and corporate communications Agency of Record. LHS is an integrated investor relations and strategic communications agency focused on helping clients advance their health and science innovations. TFF Pharmaceuticals is partnering with LHS to develop investor and media awareness of the Company as it prepares to introduce its first two compounds into human clinical trials.
The companys proprietary Thin Film Freezing (TFF) platform addresses an important drug delivery limitation: that of poor water solubility and absorption. The TFF platform can signiï¬cantly improve the solubility and absorption of poorly water-soluble drugs, a class of drugs that comprises approximately one-third of the major pharmaceuticals worldwide. The Companys technology is particularly well suited to generate dry powder particles with properties enhanced for deep lung inhalation delivery. TFF Pharmaceuticals expects its dry powder formulations will minimize certain negative side effects that result from delivering these drugs systematically.
As we move closer to the clinical trials stage and engage with partners, its critically important to build the right reputation among key stakeholders. LHS, with its proven track record in providing investor relations and integrated communications for global health science innovators, will be a great long-term partner, said Glenn Mattes, President and CEO of TFF Pharmaceuticals. LHS stood out with its understanding of our technology and value proposition across targeted channels and audiences, its team of high-touch senior communicators, and its proprietary approach to creating targeted messaging mapped to stakeholders as the foundation of a strategic IR and communications program. We are looking forward to a long and productive relationship.
Donna L. LaVoie, President & CEO of LHS commented, We are delighted to be working with TFF Pharmaceuticals to build investor and media visibility for the Company and for their pioneering Thin Film Freezing platform. We look forward to supporting the TFF Pharmaceuticals team as they continue to develop their pipeline and partnership opportunities.
