The Complete Guide to Advocacy -- From the Start of a Case to Its End

The Weldon File -- Author Mac Canter Weaves An Intriguing Fiction That Drives You to Make Moral Choices
WASHINGTON, July 1, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Political pros aren't fools when it comes to buying a Senator. They know the same ambition that drives someone to run for the United States Senate causes the would-be candidate to suffer from selective amnesia about dirty little secrets from way back when. That's why the candidate's "exploratory committee" secretly hires a research firm to "get there first with the worst" before the decision is made to launch the campaign and expose the candidate's background to opposition researchers and investigative journalists. There's no point in investing big bucks in a candidate with a ticking time bomb in his or her past.

Discovery Labs Reports On Surfaxin End of Review Meeting With FDA
WARRINGTON, Pa., July 1, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Discovery Laboratories, Inc. (Nasdaq:DSCO) announces today, after receipt of written minutes from the United States Food and Drug Administration, the results of its June 2, 2009 meeting with the FDA. This meeting followed the FDA's April 17 Complete Response Letter for Surfaxin(r) (lucinactant) for the prevention of Respiratory Distress Syndrome (RDS) in premature infants and was convened to discuss resolution of the remaining primary issue necessary for marketing approval of Surfaxin. The meeting focused on the Surfaxin fetal rabbit biological activity test (BAT, a quality control stability and release test), specifically whether data that had been previously submitted to the FDA and generated using both the BAT and a well-established preterm lamb model of RDS adequately supports the comparability of Surfaxin clinical drug product to commercial drug product, and whether the BAT can adequately distinguish change in Surfaxin biological activity over time.
