MISSION VIEJO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aeolus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCBB: AOLS) reported that researchers from National Jewish Health and Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute have completed a second study confirming that AEOL 10150 protects lungs from whole mustard gas exposure in rats. Data were presented at the 4th Annual CounterACT Countermeasures Against Chemical Threats Network Research Symposium in San Francisco. There are currently no effective treatments for mustard gas exposure and AEOL 10150 is a major focus of a sponsored research grant awarded by the NIH Counteract program to National Jewish Health to identify an effective treatment.

Mustard gas exposure can cause significant blistering of the skin as well as respiratory injury and fibrosis.
