discovery laboratories inc (DSCO) Details

Discovery Laboratories, Inc., a specialty biotechnology company, focuses on developing products for critical-care patients with respiratory disease and improving care in pulmonary medicine. Its proprietary drug technology produces a synthetic peptide-containing surfactant (KL4 surfactant in liquid, lyophilized, and aerosolized dosage forms), as well as develops drug delivery technologies to enable efficient delivery of its aerosolized KL4 surfactant. The company offers SURFAXIN Intratracheal suspension for the prevention of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) in premature infants; AFECTAIR device, a disposable aerosol-conducting airway connector for infants; and WARMING CRADLE, a dry-block heating device that is designed to warm drug vials at the same temperature that is designated in the SURFAXIN prescribing information. It is also developing AEROSURF, a drug/device combination product that delivers KL4 surfactant in aerosolized form using the lyophilized KL4 surfactant is in Phase II clinical trials for the treatment of RDS in premature infants. In addition, the company is developing a lyophilized (freeze-dried) dosage form of its KL4 surfactant. The company has a collaboration agreement with Battelle Memorial Institute for the development and commercialization of AEROSURF; and a strategic alliance with Laboratorios del Dr. Esteve, S.A. for the development, marketing, and sale of a portfolio of KL4 surfactant products in Andorra, Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. Discovery Laboratories, Inc. was founded in 1992 and is headquartered in Warrington, Pennsylvania.

Discovery Laboratories, Inc. Completes Enrollment of AEROSURF Phase 2a Clinical Trial and Restructures

Discovery Laboratories Inc. announced that it has completed enrollment in its AEROSURF phase 2a clinical trial assessing the administration of a single dose of AEROSURF in premature infants 29-34 week gestational age (GA) with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). The company also is implementing a restructuring plan to voluntarily cease the commercialization of SURFAXIN (lucinactant) Intratracheal Suspension and focus its resources on the development of its aerosolized KL4 surfactant for respiratory diseases, beginning with AEROSURF. AEROSURF: The AEROSURF phase 2a trial is a multi-center, open-label trial to evaluate safety and tolerability of a single dose of aerosolized KL4 surfactant in premature infants (n = 48) 29 to 34 weeks GA who are receiving nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) for RDS, compared to infants receiving nCPAP alone. The study evaluated three escalating doses of AEROSURF. In addition to evaluating safety and tolerability, another key objective is to establish proof of concept for the company's proprietary technology platform with (1) physiological data indicating that aerosolized KL4 surfactant is being effectively delivered into the lung of premature infants, and (2) acceptable performance by the novel capillary aerosol generator (CAG) technology in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The company anticipates releasing the results of this trial and holding an investor conference call in approximately three to four weeks. AEROSURF is the company's investigational combination drug/device product that combines its synthetic KL4 surfactant with its proprietary CAG. If AEROSURF is successfully developed and approved, neonatologists will be able to administer aerosolized KL4 surfactant to premature infants receiving nCPAP, without having to use invasive methods (intubation and mechanical ventilation procedures that may each result in serious respiratory conditions and other complications) that currently are required to administer all surfactants. AEROSURF potentially will address this unmet medical need and may make possible the treatment of a significantly greater number of premature infants with RDS who could benefit from surfactant therapy but are currently not treated.
