    "But Alexza's idea of heating up a drug to create a vapor, or smoke, is unique."

    WTF? I guess these lads never heard of the Volcano.

    From MedlinePlus: "Prochlorperazine is used to treat the nausea and vomiting caused by radiation therapy, cancer chemotherapy, surgery, and other conditions."

    Gee, what other drug out there can be vaporized and provide the same relief?

    I wonder if their investors would be excited by that idea!

    If THC could be vaporized, it would revolutionize the control of nausea !
    Still, an antipsychotic antiemetic is much better than one now proved to induce shizophrenia.
    (dripping with sarcasm..)
