12 VIRAL ILLNESSES 

is how many ALL CHILDREN experience per year

EVERY MINUTE

2 children in need have no access to respiratory relief

POWERLESS 

is how most parents feel when their child is in discomfort from a respiratory illness

TRAUMATISING 

is how parents describe current management due to limited options

UP TO $30,000 USD 

is cut into the annual household income as the cost of missing work to care for sick child

2-7 EPISODES

of flu-like viral infections are experienced by children every year

Breathing health back into households

MyMisti can fill a key gap in the market to provide fast respiratory relief from nasal congestion and other symptomatic relief so that the overall burden on families caused by respiratory bugs can be reduced. I am excited for MyMisti to be on our pharmacy shelves soon due to the unique features of efficient aerosol treatment in the child-friendly nebuliser mask thus providing an easy-to-use tool in your medicine cabinet at home (or handbag!).

 Respiratory diseases like RSV - can create problems for young children where their small airways can get swollen and congested. RSV has no specific treatments, and oxygen is given in the case of low oxygen saturation in a hospital setting. At-home care is limited to saline drops or nasal sprays which can reach only the upper airways.

Misti's nebuliser can deliver saline as a mist into deep spaces of the lungs to break down thick mucus to relieve breathing difficulties. In the future, I can see that exciting medicines such as chemotherapy drugs and even vaccines could be delivered this way.

Our Story

Dr Anushi (Kulasiri) Rajapaksa

My journey with Misti began at the tender age of 7, fueled by a profound fear of needles that made receiving even basic medical care a daunting challenge - for myself and my parents! It became evident that there were countless other children like me facing similar fears.

Over the past 15 years, my unwavering commitment to this cause has driven my career in R&D research. Building upon the foundation of my PhD, I dedicated a decade to addressing this problem as a senior researcher, generously funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council at Melbourne's esteemed Royal Children's Hospital, while being a mom to two wonderful children.

 

For the last 5 years, my focus has been on refining Misti's design and conducting rigorous pre-clinical testing to put an end to children's respiratory viruses and the discomfort they cause and safely breathe back health into households.
