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
