The Alexza excitement is over now that approval in both the US and Europe was met with a trans-Atlantic loud yawn. The commercial potential of Adasuve is highly questionable and the company will almost certainly dilute ahead of launch. As an ER doc, the very idea of a mask inhalation sedative for an agitated patient seems ridiculous to me. Everything else I hear about the specs such as the necessity of patient compliance with the treatment and the duration of the treatment just make it sound worse. I think unless Alexza can come up with a follow up act to Adasuve, they're likely headed to the same fate as Labopharm. Remember Labopharm?
