About Patients with Acute Agitation

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, schizophrenia afflicts about 2.5 million adults and bipolar disorder affects about 5.7 million adults in the US. Agitation, characterized by unpleasant arousal, tension, irritability and hostility, is one of the most common and severe symptoms of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. In about half the cases, it can require hospitalization. About 70% of those who experience agitation will have one to six episodes per year.

Treated patients are generally given intramuscular injections of an atypical antipsychotic drug or a sedative medication. However, intramuscular injections are invasive, can take 30 to 60 minutes to begin to work, frequently require restraints, are often disconcerting to patients and can be dangerous to the medical personnel administering the injection. Alexza believes that many schizophrenic and bipolar patients can make informed decisions regarding their treatment in an acute agitative state and would prefer a noninvasive treatment. Alexza also believes there is a significant unmet medical need for a fast-acting, noninvasive treatment of acute agitation in schizophrenic and bipolar patients.
