RDS is a condition in which premature infants are born with an insufficient amount of pulmonary surfactant, a substance produced naturally in the lungs and essential for breathing. Today, infants with RDS often require surfactant replacement therapy along with mechanical ventilation to survive. Approximately 90,000 premature infants in the United States are treated annually with currently available animal-derived surfactants made from cow or pig lung extract.This is the first publication of these data, which have been presented previously in part at medical conferences. The study was funded in part by a grant from Discovery Laboratories, Inc. Dr. Marla Wolfson does not have a financial interest in Discovery Laboratories, Inc.
