MannKind Corporation announced that it has completed the validation of two additional filling lines for the manufacture of Afrezza® (insulin human) inhalation powder. Material produced during the validation runs, including the recently approved 12 unit cartridges, will be supplied to Sanofi to support the launch of the new dosage strength, which is expected later this quarter.

“With the completion of the validation effort, which began last quarter, we can support a demand of more than 300 million cartridges per year,” stated Hakan Edstrom, President and CEO of MannKind Corporation.”
