Date:9/18/2007

Conference Call Scheduled for Tuesday, September 18 at 5:00 p.m. EDT

PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Alexza Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALXA) today announced that it expects to begin the first of two Phase 3 trials for AZ-004 (Staccato(R) loxapine) late in the first quarter of 2008. AZ-004 is initially being developed for the treatment of acute agitation in patients with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. The two Phase 3 trials are anticipated to each enroll approximately 300 patients. AZ-004 is being developed through Symphony Allegro, a product development collaboration formed between Alexza and Symphony Capital, LLC.

"Our AZ-004 development program continues to track 6 to 12 months ahead of our original schedule, which we outlined last September as we initiated our Phase 2a clinical trial," said Thomas B.

AZ-004 is a product candidate we believe could fill an important unmet need in the acute treatment of agitation in schizophrenic and bipolar patients."
