AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TFF Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: TFFP), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing innovative drug products based on its patented Thin Film Freezing (TFF) technology platform, today announced that it will be meeting with investors and commercial partners from January 13 to January 16, 2020 in San Francisco, concurrent with the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference and 2020 Biotech Showcase.
TFF Pharmaceuticals recently completed a $24 million initial public offering, and on November 25th, initiated a Phase 1 clinical trial of its unique Voriconazole Inhalation Powder that is being investigated for the treatment of a severe and life-threatening disease: Invasive Pulmonary Aspergillosis, or IPA. This has the potential to be the first dry powder inhaled fungicide on the market. The Company’s second candidate, TFF Tacrolimus Inhalation Powder, is an inhaled dry powder version of tacrolimus, one of the most commonly administered immunosuppressive drug used in solid organ transplants. An IND for TFF Tacrolimus Inhalation Powder is expected to be filed in Q1-2020 and will be developed for the prevention of organ rejection in patients receiving lung transplants.
TFF Pharmaceuticals senior management will be available to meet at the LaVoieHealthScience Corporate Access suites at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis and the Hotel Spero.

About TFF Pharmaceuticals’ Thin Film Freezing technology platform
TFF Pharmaceuticals’ Thin Film Freezing (TFF) platform was designed to improve the solubility and absorption of poorly water-soluble drugs and is particularly suited to generate dry powder particles with properties targeted for inhalation delivery, especially to the deep lung, an area of extreme interest in respiratory medicine. The TFF process results in a “Brittle Matrix Particle,” which possesses low bulk density, high surface area, and typically an amorphous morphology, allowing the particles to supersaturate when contacting the target site, such as lung tissue. Based upon laboratory experiments, the aerodynamic properties of the particles are such that the portion of a drug deposited to the deep lung has the potential to reach as high as 75 percent.
