LEXINGTON, Mass., Aug. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pulmatrix, Inc. (NASDAQ: PULM) will present at the Rodman & Renshaw 18th Annual Global Investment Conference on Monday, September 12, 2016 at 5:30 PM EDT in the Lotte New York Palace Hotel in New York City.

Among the highlights of the presentation will be positive data from a pilot clinical study of Pulmatrix's PUR2000 drug candidate for chronic pulmonary obstructive disease (COPD), which Pulmatrix is developing with Mylan, and FDA orphan drug designation for PUR1900, an inhaled drug to treat fungal infections in cystic fibrosis patients.

The Company's proprietary product pipeline is focused on advancing treatments for lung diseases, including opportunities in major pulmonary diseases through collaborations, like PUR0200, a branded generic in clinical development for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and PUR1900, an inhaled antifungal that could benefit severe asthmatics and patients with rare disease like cystic fibrosis. Pulmatrix's product candidates are based on iSPERSE™, its proprietary dry powder delivery platform, which seeks to improve therapeutic delivery to the lungs by maximizing local concentrations and reducing systemic side effects to improve patient outcomes.
