Alexza Announces Positive Phase 1 Results With AZ-007 (Staccato(R) Zaleplon)
Date:4/29/2008

howed onset of effect as early as 2 minutes after dosing with AZ-007.

There were no serious adverse events. The most frequently reported adverse events in subjects receiving AZ-007 were dizziness and somnolence. These data indicate a rapid onset of effect, apparently directly related to the IV-like pharmacokinetics, and showed that AZ-007 was generally safe and well tolerated in this population of healthy volunteers.

About Insomnia

Insomnia is a prevalent disorder that drives a multi-billion dollar market of prescription medications each year. An estimated 10 to 30% of the U.S. population experiences either chronic or occasional insomnia. In 2005, one survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation showed that 54% of the respondents experienced a minimum of one symptom of insomnia at least a few nights a week. Of those, respondents complained primarily of waking up feeling unrefreshed (38%), waking up frequently during the night (32%), having difficulty falling asleep (21%), and waking up too early and not being able to get back to sleep (21%). There is a potentially significant clinical need for rapid and predictable onset of sleep in patients with insomnia, as well as a predictable duration of sleep and rapid, clear awakening.

About AZ-007 (Staccato zaleplon)

AZ-007 is the combination of Alexza's proprietary Staccato system with zaleplon, a drug belonging to the class of compounds known generally as hypnotics. The Staccato system technology is a hand-held, chemically-heated, single dose inhaler designed to generate and deliver excipient-free drug aerosol for deep lung delivery that results in IV-like pharmacokinetics.

The Company believes that AZ-007 may provide rapid sleep onset. Moreover, by coupling the shorter half-life of zaleplon with the lower dose enabled by the Staccato system technology, the overall product profile may match well with an unmet clinical need for patients with insomnia.
