FDA denies & postpones easy EPI delivery

The FDA rejected  approval of an epinephrine nasal spray device similar to Narcan that would have been the first needle-free alternative to epinephrine auto injectors. FDA advisory committee voted  in May to  approve  the  nasal delivery spray.  The FDA usually  approves drugs recommended by its committees.  This would have greatly reduced the cost and taken away the "sting" of injections.  In essence this was a great improvement over long time used EPI  Pristine  Mist.
