Concentric Named Professional Agency of Record for Discovery Labs' SURFAXIN(R)
Date:9/3/2008

NEW YORK, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Concentric Pharma Advertising, one of the fastest growing marketing agencies in the healthcare field, has been named agency of record by Discovery Labs for SURFAXIN(R) (lucinactant), an investigational drug being reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) in newborns.

"We selected Concentric for this assignment because the company's strategic insight and creative vision best captured the essence of the SURFAXIN brand," said John Wilson, vice president of sales and marketing at Discovery, adding that the agency's in-depth knowledge of neonatology and acute RDS in premature infants also played a significant part in the decision.

The full-service U.S. assignment will include a wide range of activities, including corporate and product branding, positioning, and the creation of support materials geared to neonatologists, neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurses, respiratory therapists, hospital pharmacists, and, potentially, parents of newborns. The agency's account team will be led by Ed Mutch, account supervisor. Blake Benner, director of marketing at Discovery Labs, will manage the account on the client side.

Discovery Labs, headquartered in Warrington, Pa., is a biotechnology company developing novel surfactant replacement therapies (SRTs) with potential for application across the continuum of respiratory diseases, initially focusing on RDS in premature infants.
