Discovery Labs Presents Surfaxin and Aerosurf Data At the Pediatric,Academic Societies' Annual Meeting

upplemental oxygen, which increases their risk of developing BPD. Discovery believes that after an initial RDS treatment, BPD may be successfully treated with repeated doses of a non-immunogenic, precision-engineered synthetic surfactant (Surfaxin) to improve the clinical outcome of these infants.

Discovery's Proprietary KL-4 Surfactant Technology: Product Candidates Surfaxin(r) and Aerosurf(tm)

Discovery's surfactant product candidates, including Surfaxin and Aerosurf, are engineered versions of natural human lung surfactant and contain the precision-engineered KL-4 peptide. KL-4 is a 21 amino acid protein-like substance that is designed to closely mimic the essential attributes of human surfactant protein B (SP-B), the surfactant protein most important for the proper functioning of the respiratory system. KL-4 surfactant has the potential to be precisely formulated, either as a liquid instillate, aerosolized liquid or dry powder, to address various respiratory diseases affecting premature infants, children and adults.

Surfaxin, a precision-engineered Surfactant Replacement Therapy (SRT) administered as a liquid-instillate, represents a potential alternative to animal-derived surfactants. Surfaxin's precision-engineered and non-immunogenic nature allows it to be further developed as a therapeutic to address other pulmonary conditions in neonatal and pediatric medicine. Data from Discovery's pivotal, multinational SELECT study demonstrate that Surfaxin is significantly more effective in the prevention of RDS and results in improved survival (continuing through at least one year of life) and other outcomes versus comparator surfactants. The SELECT and STAR (a supportive Phase 3 study) trials, as well as a pooled Phase 3 analysis, have been presented at several international medical meetings and the results from the two studies were published in Pediatrics.
