Study of Transdermal Lidocaine Hydrogel Patch for Pain Relief.  Alliqua, Inc.
today announced the initiation of a preclinical proof-of-principle study of an
experimental hydrogel patch containing lidocaine. Safety and tolerability of
Alliqua's lidocaine hydrogel patches will be explored in an animal model.
Further, the pharmacokinetic profile will be analyzed to determine the amount
of systemic absorption and local lidocaine concentration in the skin
immediately beneath the patch. "The ease of use, stability and compatibility
with active ingredients make our hydrogels well suited for the transdermal
delivery of a variety of compounds, including pain medications like
lidocaine," commented James Sapirstein, chief executive officer of Alliqua
Biomedical. "Our lidocaine patch development program is just the first in our
effort to build a portfolio of products that leverage our hydrogel platform.
We believe success in this proof-of-principle study for our lidocaine patch
would increase the likelihood of success with other compounds and greatly
enhances our efforts in this area. Beyond lidocaine, the Alliqua Biomedical
division plans to explore transdermal delivery of dermatological, oncology,
antibiotic and neurology products." To read the entire press release, please

FNM Market News: Drug Delivery Technology Market - The $82 billion U.S. drug
delivery market is showing no signs of saturation, with major patent expiries,
generic competition, tightening Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
regulations, and emerging drug delivery systems continuing to provide
momentum. Among the 15 drug delivery systems surveyed by Frost & Sullivan,
physicians prefer topical delivery, either as a transdermal patch or topical
gel/cream, and expressed willingness to switch their current mode of therapy
to one available in these forms.

BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: BCRX) today announced that the
randomized, placebo-controlled, Phase 1 clinical trial of orally-administered
BCX4161 in healthy volunteers successfully met all of its objectives. The

results of this Phase 1 trial strongly support advancing the development
program into a Phase 2a study in hereditary angioedema (HAE) patients.
 Overall, 87 healthy volunteers completed the study; 30 received a single dose
of BCX4161 from 50 mg up to 1000 mg, 40 subjects received 100 mg, 200 mg, 400
mg, or 800 mg BCX4161 every eight hours for seven days, and 17 received a
placebo.

monitor the results of cancer treatment through a non-invasive, systemic
