About Alexza Pharmaceuticals

Alexza Pharmaceuticals is an emerging specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel, proprietary products for the treatment of acute and intermittent conditions. The Company's technology, the Staccato(R) system, vaporizes unformulated drug to form a condensation aerosol that allows rapid systemic drug delivery through deep lung inhalation. The drug is quickly absorbed through the lungs into the bloodstream, providing speed of therapeutic onset that is comparable to intravenous administration, but with greater ease, patient comfort and convenience.

Alexza has five product candidates in clinical development. Alexza's lead program, AZ-004 (Staccato loxapine) for the treatment of acute agitation in schizophrenic or bipolar disorder patients, has completed one Phase 3 clinical trial and enrolled a second Phase 3 trial. The Company has completed its end-of-Phase 2 meeting with the FDA for AZ-001 (Staccato prochlorperazine), which is intended for the acute treatment of migraine headache, and it has advanced AZ-104 (Staccato loxapine) to Phase 2 testing. Product candidates that have completed Phase 1 testing are AZ-003 (Staccato fentanyl) for the treatment of breakthrough pain, which is partnered with Endo Pharmaceuticals in North America, and AZ-007 (Staccato zaleplon) for the treatment of insomnia. In addition, AZ-002 (Staccato alprazolam) has completed a Phase 2a proof-of-concept clinical trial for the treatment of panic attacks -- an indication the Company is not planning to pursue -- and is being assessed for other possible indications and renewed clinical development. More information, including this and past press releases from Alexza, is available online at
