There is growing interest in intranasal therapies as a tolerable and acceptable delivery route for medications proposed to treat Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Nasal geometry and flow represent two factors that may moderate bioavailability and response to intranasal drugs. However, modern measures of nasal assessment such as acoustic rhinometry and rhinomanometry have not been examined in this population. The seminar will give an overview of paediatric intranasal delivery, why nasal structure and flow may be important moderators, and results from trialling modern methods of nasal assessment in a paediatric ASD cohort.
