Altamira Therapeutics Ltd. announced that the Company's US subsidiary has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA to market its nasal spray Bentrio ("Bentrio Allergy Blocker") for the treatment of allergic rhinitis (hay fever).


Clearance was provided for the following indication for use: "Bentrio is intended to treat hay fever and allergy sufferers by promoting alleviation of mild allergic symptoms (i.e. mild nasal irritation including itchy, runny, or congested nasal passages) triggered by the inhalation of various airborne allergens including indoor and outdoor environmental pollens, house dust, animal hair and dust mites. Application of Bentrio produces a mucous-like gel barrier that coats the nasal membranes, traps inhaled allergens within the nasal cavity and helps with their clearance."

Condition: Allergic Rhinitis
Type: drug
