MORRISVILLE, N.C., June 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liquidia Corporation (NASDAQ: LQDA) (“Liquidia” or the “Company”) today announced the presentation of data related to the investigational use of YUTREPIA™ (treprostinil) inhalation powder, previously referred to as LIQ861, at the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) International Conference and Scientific Session in Atlanta, Georgia, June 9 to 11, 2022.
Poster #1036: Quality of Life (QoL) in PAH Patients Receiving an Inhaled Dry Powder Treprostinil (LIQ861) in the INSPIRE Study. Presented during the poster session by Martha Kingman, FNP-C, DNP, of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas.
Dr. Kingman will also present the data in an oral format during the Lightening-Round presentations on Thursday, June 9th, from 5:50 PM – 6:00 PM.
Scott Moomaw, Senior Vice President at Liquidia, said: “It has been well-documented that PAH patients have a severely impaired health-related quality of life. The data presented today help demonstrate that YUTREPIA™ can provide a clinically meaningful improvement in quality of life whether starting a prostacyclin therapy for the first time or transitioning from another inhaled form. We are sincerely thankful to the patient and medical community for their support in our clinical trials as we seek to address unmet needs in the treatment of PAH.”

About YUTREPIA™ (treprostinil) inhalation powder
YUTREPIA is an investigational, inhaled dry powder formulation of treprostinil delivered through a proven, convenient, palm-sized device. On November 5, 2021, the FDA issued a tentative approval for YUTREPIA, which is indicated for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) to improve exercise ability in adult patients with New York Heart Association (NYHA) Functional Class II-III symptoms. YUTREPIA was designed using Liquidia’s PRINT® technology, which enables the development of drug particles that are precise and uniform in size, shape, and composition, and that are engineered for optimal deposition in the lung following oral inhalation. Liquidia has completed INSPIRE, or Investigation of the Safety and Pharmacology of Dry Powder Inhalation of Treprostinil, an open-label, multi-center phase 3 clinical study of YUTREPIA in patients diagnosed with PAH who are naïve to inhaled treprostinil or who are transitioning from Tyvaso (nebulized treprostinil). YUTREPIA was previously referred to as LIQ861 in investigational studies.
