Discovery Laboratories reported top line data from its recently completed Aerosurf phase 2a clinical trial in premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome.

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.
