Ticker:DSCO
Company Name: Discovery Laboratories, Inc.

Business Overview from 10-K filing for Discovery Laboratories, Inc.:

Discovery Laboratories, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company developing its proprietary precision-engineered lung surfactant technology as Surfactant Replacement Therapies (SRTs) for respiratory diseases. Surfactants are compositions produced naturally in the lungs and are essential to the lungs ability to absorb oxygen and to maintain proper airflow through the respiratory system. The absence or depletion of surfactants is involved in a number of respiratory diseases. Our technology produces a precision-engineered, peptide-containing surfactant that is designed to closely mimic the function of human lung surfactant. We believe that through this SRT technology, pulmonary surfactants have the potential, for the first time, to be developed into a series of respiratory therapies for patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), critical care unit and other hospitalized settings, where there are few or no approved therapies available.
