Pharmacoeconomic Analysis Shows SURFAXIN® May Reduce Hospital Cost Associated with Reintubation in Premature Infants
Date:5/1/2012

WARRINGTON, Pa., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Discovery Laboratories, Inc. (NASDAQ: DSCO) today announced the presentation of a new pharmacoeconomic analysis demonstrating that the lower rate of reintubation previously reported in infants treated with SURFAXIN®, when compared with infants treated with Curosurf® and Survanta®, the current global market leading surfactants, also resulted in a potential hospital cost savings of $160,000 to $252,000 per 100 infants.  The analysis, which is expected to appear in publication later this year, was presented at the 2012 Pediatric Academies Society Annual Conference (April 28 – May 1, 2012) in Boston, MA.

"This analysis suggests that the selection of a specific surfactant can significantly impact hospital costs based on the rate of reintubation observed with each therapy," said Dr. Russell G. Clayton, Senior Vice President, Research & Development, of Discovery Labs.  "In this pharmacoeconomic model, the lower rate of reintubation observed in infants receiving SURFAXIN also resulted in a potential reduction in healthcare resource utilization and per-patient hospital cost when compared to treatment with today's market leading animal-derived surfactants."

The current standard of care for respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) typically requires that the infant undergo intubation (insertion of a breathing tube into the infant's airway) to allow for surfactant administration and respiratory support via mechanical ventilation.  If therapy is successful, the breathing tube is removed to allow the infant to breathe independently.  However, over one third of infants have difficulty breathing independently after the breathing tube is removed and require reintubation.
