Bring your vision to market

As a fully licensed drug and medical device manufacturer, we have the space, equipment, quality control, and expertise to make technologies and therapies that can change lives for the better.

Our pipeline reflects how we, as well as our partners, are applying MannKind technology to develop and advance new products to not only help people take control of their health, but truly thrive.

MannKind and United Therapeutics entered into a worldwide exclusive licensing and collaboration agreement in September 2018 for the development of Tyvaso DPI®. As a next-generation formulation of treprostinil, Tyvaso DPI incorporates the dry-powder Technosphere technology and Dreamboat® inhalation device.

MannKind and Cipla Ltd., a global pharmaceutical company, entered into an exclusive supply and distribution agreement for the commercialization of Afrezza® (insulin human) Inhalation Powder in India. Under the terms of the agreement, Cipla will be responsible for obtaining regulatory approvals to distribute Afrezza® in India as well as all marketing and sales activities. MannKind will manufacture and supply Afrezza to Cipla.

MannKind and BIOMM SA entered into an exclusive supply and distribution agreement for the commercialization of Afrezza® (insulin human) Inhalation Powder in Brazil. MannKind manufactures and supplies Afrezza to Biomm, and Biomm is responsible for promoting and distributing Afrezza within Brazil.

MannKind and Thirona entered into an agreement to evaluate the therapeutic potential of Thirona’s locally acting TGF-β inhibitor, FBM5712, for the treatment of pulmonary fibrosis. MannKind is developing MNKD-501, a dry powder inhaled formulation of FBM5712. If initial studies are promising, MannKind can exercise certain rights to seek a full license to the compound for clinical development and commercialization for the treatment of fibrotic pulmonary diseases.

Technosphere® Technology


State-of-the-art development technologies optimize dry powder formulation with inhalation devices early in the development process to ensure successful drug delivery in first-in-human studies.

Technosphere technology has been shown to be compatible with a wide range of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) properties:
  • Molecular weight of 200 to 150,000 daltons (Da)
  • Drug content up to 90% by weight
Through controlled crystallization, spray drying, lyophilization and performance-enhancing excipients, MannKind has developed a suite of superior processing techniques which form reproducible, well-controlled particles that are:
  • Perfectly sized for inhalation
  • Fixed in size prior to API introduction
  • Free from requiring sizing, milling or blending
Microparticles are formed from fumaryl diketopiperazine (FDKP), which is FDA-approved and an ideal excipient for inhalation drug delivery. FDKP is compatible with a wide range of APIs and reproducible with well-controlled particle formation. It is excreted unchanged in urine and has demonstrated excellent safety through an extensive complete technology package.
