16:13 EDTDSCODiscovery Labs receives $30M investment from Deerfield
Deerfield Management announced that it has entered into a secured loan facility with Discovery Laboratories for up to $30M in financing. The financing provides Discovery with capital to commercialize its drug Surfaxin, which has been approved by the FDA for the prevention of Respiratory Distress Syndrome, or RDS, in premature infants at high risk for RDS, and its Afectair airway connector for infants receiving aerosolized medication in neonatal or pediatric intensive care units. The launch of these products will enable Discovery to transition from a development- to a commercial-stage company, and further develop its lead pipeline product, Aerosurf. The financing was structured to provide funding over time as needed and to avoid the dilution and potential discount of a public offering of stock or convertible debt financing. Under terms of the facility, Deerfield committed to advance $30M this year

07:11 EDTDSCODiscovery Labs's Aerosurf shows positive Phase 2a data
Discovery Laboratories reported top line data from its recently completed Aerosurf phase 2a clinical trial in premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome. Key objectives of the study were achieved, including the primary objective of demonstrating the safety and tolerability of a single exposure of aerosolized KL4 surfactant administered in three escalating inhaled doses to premature infants 29 to 34 week gestational age and receiving nasal continuous positive airway pressure for RDS, and establishing proof of concept for the company's proprietary technology platform. The company plans to start a phase 2a dose expansion in 29 to 34 weeks gestational age infants to evaluate increased doses and repeat dosing in Q2 with completion in Q4, a phase 2a clinical trial assessing the safety and tolerability of escalating doses of AEROSURF administered to 26 to 28 weeks gestational age infants, anticipated to begin in July with completion in Q4, and a phase 2b clinical trial to determine the optimal dose and define the expected efficacy margin of AEROSURF treatment in Q4 with completion in mid 2016.
