Circassia Pharmaceuticals adds 'exciting, near-term' respiratory drug to portfolio

Steve Harris, chief executive of Circassia Pharmaceuticals PLC (LON:CIR), tells Proactive London's Andrew Scott they've acquired the exclusive US and Chinese commercialisation rights to AirNOvent – a treatment for persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) of newborns.

PPHN occurs when the pressure in the blood vessels of a baby’s lungs remains high after birth, which can restrict the amount of oxygen flowing around the body and make the newborn unwell.

It's thought to occur in around one in 500 births.
