Discovery Labs to Present AFECTAIR® Data at European Congress on Pediatric and Neonatal Ventilation
Date:6/7/2012

WARRINGTON, Pa., June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Discovery Laboratories, Inc. (Nasdaq: DSCO), a specialty biotechnology company dedicated to advancing a new standard in respiratory critical care, today announced it will be presenting neonatal AFECTAIR® data at the 11th European Congress on Pediatric and Neonatal Ventilation being held June 6 – 9, 2012 in Montreux, Switzerland.  Though initially presented in the U.S., these data presentations mark the first introduction of the AFECTAIR neonatal device through scientific exchange to a European pediatric critical care audience.  The AFECTAIR neonatal device has been developed by Discovery Labs to simplify the delivery of inhaled medications for critical care patients requiring ventilatory support and was cleared for marketing in the U.S. in early 2012.  The AFECTAIR neonatal device will be commercially available in the U.S. and EU in late 2012.  

Highlights from the two data presentations include:

Utilization of iNO Using a Novel Ventilator Circuit Connector versus Standard of Care Under Simulated Neonatal Mechanical Ventilation Conditions – An In Vitro Study.  Mazela, et al.

  • The Standard of Care (SoC) for ventilator delivery of inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) in pulmonary hypertension allows for potential iNO dilution, gas loss and environmental contamination.
  • According to this study, which simulated neonatal mechanical ventilation conditions using an in vitro model, use of the AFECTAIR neonatal device resulted in the achievement of target nitric oxide concentrations using less nitric oxide when compared to the SoC delivery apparatus. 

In Vitro Assessment of a Novel Aerosol Delivery System under Simulated Conditions; Mazela, et al.
