Developing a non-injectable somatostatin analog alternative for patients. DP1038 is a short-acting octreotide formulation delivered as a nasal mist that is not inhaled.

Octreotide, a somatostatin analog, is an inhibitor of growth hormone that is administered solely by injection in approved products, and is used as first-line pharmacotherapy for two orphan diseases, acromegaly and neuroendocrine tumors, with utility in several gastrointestinal disorders including chemotherapy-induced diarrhea (CID).

The current market for somatostatin analogs exceeds $2 billion and is dominated by products that are administered by health care professionals. Limitations of long-acting somatostatin analogs include painful injection site reactions and nodules from very large injection volumes and needles, and breakthrough symptoms when octreotide levels are too low to adequately treat the patient.

DP1038 is being developed for patients who desire a non-invasive alternative or who are not adequately controlled on long-acting formulations and can benefit from short-acting pharmacotherapy.

DP1038 leverages patented Intravail® technology developed by Aegis Therapeutics LLC for enhanced intranasal absorption.
