Date:10/24/2011

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Alexza Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALXA) announced today that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has scheduled a meeting of the Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Committee (PDAC) for December 12, 2011, at which the ADASUVE New Drug Application (NDA) will be discussed.  In August 2011, Alexza received notification that the FDA had accepted the resubmission of the ADASUVE NDA and assigned a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) goal date of February 4, 2012.

About Alexza Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Alexza is a pharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and commercialization of novel, proprietary products for the acute treatment of central nervous system conditions.  Alexza's technology, the Staccato® system, vaporizes unformulated drug to form a condensation aerosol that, when inhaled, allows for 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. (Click here to see an animation of how the Staccato system works.)

Adasuve™ (Staccato loxapine), Alexza's lead program, is being developed for the acute treatment of agitation in adults with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.  Alexza completed and announced positive results from both of its Phase 3 clinical trials and initially submitted the ADASUVE NDA in December 2009.  In October 2010, the Company received a Complete Response Letter (CRL) from the FDA regarding the application.  The Company completed an end-of-review meeting with the FDA in December 2010 and a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) guidance meeting with the FDA in April 2011.  The ADASUVE NDA was resubmitted on August 4, 2011, and has a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) goal date of February 4, 2012.

In October 2011, the Company established a commercial partnership for ADASUVE with Grupo Ferrer International, S.A.  Grupo Ferrer is a leading pharmaceutical company in Europe with extensive operations in the Americas, and is Alexza's partner in the registration, distribution and promotion of ADASUVE in Europe, Latin America, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States countries.  Alexza plans to file the ADASUVE Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in the fourth quarter of 2011.
