Pharmaxis Research Programs Highlighted at European Respiratory Society Congress

SYDNEY, Australia, Oct. 3 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pharmaceutical company Pharmaxis (ASX: PXS, NASDAQ: PXSL) has announced that researchers will present 12 abstracts from its respiratory disease program at the 2008 European Respiratory Society Congress (ERS) being held in Berlin from the 4th to the 8th October. The ERS brings together many of the world's top respiratory researchers and clinicians to hear latest advances in clinical diagnosis and treatment.

A comprehensive program of research will be presented in ERS symposiums and poster sessions relating to the lung challenge product, Aridol, and the mucus clearing agent, Bronchitol.

In a poster session Professor Di Bilton, Consultant Physician and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Department of Respiratory Medicine, The Royal Brompton Hospital, London, UK, will detail results of a successful randomized, placebo- controlled trial of inhaled mannitol (Bronchitol) in patients with bronchiectasis.

Other key ERS program events from the Pharmaxis respiratory disease program include:

-- The use of inhaled mannitol (Aridol) for assessing airway disease

-- Direct versus indirect airway challenges

-- Using a dry powder of mannitol (Aridol) versus methacholine as

challenge for routine practice

-- Inhaled mannitol (Bronchitol) as treatment for children with cystic


-- Implications for everyday practice

-- Infectious lung diseases including tuberculosis

-- A randomized, placebo-controlled trial of inhaled

mannitol(Bronchitol) in patients with bronchiectasis

-- Cough and airway hyperresponsiveness

-- A comparison of inhaled mannitol (Aridol), methacholine

provocation and eucapnic voluntary hyperventilation as diagnostic

tests for exercised-induced bronchoconstriction in cross country


-- Assessment of inflammation, hyperresponsiveness and response to

exercise in asthmatic children

-- Mannitol dry powder challenge (Aridol) in comparison with exercise

testing and methacholine challenge test in children

-- Responsiveness to mannitol (Aridol) and exercise challenge in

children with asthma

-- Association between mannitol dry powder challenge (Aridol) test

results and fractional exhaled nitric oxide in children

-- Exercise-induced asthma, acute severe asthma and allergic rhinitis in


-- Change of exercise challenge tests and mannitol challenge test

(Aridol) during optimized asthma treatment in adolescents with

exercise induced asthma

-- Investigation, inspiration, ventilation, dedication: the essence of

physiological measurement

-- The perception of breathlessness during bronchoconstriction induced

by mannitol (Aridol) in COPD

-- Phenotyping of asthma and COPD

-- Airway hyperresponsiveness to mannitol (Aridol) and exhaled NO are

related to inflammatory subtypes in asthma.

ERS is Europe's biggest annual scientific gathering in respiratory medicine, with more than 17,000 participants each year. It aims to provide a platform for important improvements in the treatment of lung diseases. Full details of ERS may be viewed on the ERS website at
