Alexza Pharmaceuticals

Alexza Pharmaceuticals, located in Mountain View, CA, is focused on the research, development and commercialization of novel, proprietary products for the acute treatment of central nervous system conditions.

The Staccato system is a hand-held inhaler that delivers a drug aerosol to the deep lung that results in intravenous-like pharmacokinetics and rapid systemic effects.
