KL4 surfactant therapies for respiratory diseases.
As a practical matter, aerosolized
propolis may reach more patients.
3 million patients annually in the United States and European Union receive aerosolized

Discovery Labs is also developing its proprietary drug delivery technologies -- capillary aerosol generator and novel patient interface adapters -- to enable efficient, targeted upper respiratory or alveolar delivery of aerosolized
