Improving Patient Health. Revolutionizing Nasal Drug Delivery.
Olfax Medical is a start-up product development and commercialization company located in Asheville, NC specializing in nasally administered therapeutics. Our mission is to help patients avoid the harmful and addictive side effects of systemic pharmaceuticals by revolutionizing nasal drug delivery.
The world of nasal drug delivery has been plagued by inefficient technology that has been essentially unchanged for the past 40 years. Pharmaceutical companies are forced to use the same metered dose nasal spray pumps for expensive, potentially life-saving drugs as they do for simple, over the counter treatments. Not only is this method outdated, but it also limits the absorption capabilities of nasal medications.
Founded in 2017, our experienced team of engineers, clinical care specialists, and clinical researchers are creating novel, self-administered therapeutic treatments that utilize the nerve networks of the turbinates, the olfactory and trigeminal nerves, to absorb neurologically active medications directly from the nose to the brain, bypassing the blood-brain barrier.
