Pulmonx, Inc. Gets United States Food and Drug Administration Approval for U.S. Trial of Emphysema Therapy
Aug 27 12
Pulmonx, Inc. announced that United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved its request for an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) to commence a multi-center pivotal clinical trial. Pulmonx intends to use the results from this trial to support a subsequent premarket approval application (PMA) for the Zephyr(R) Endobronchial Valve (EBV). This new trial will incorporate the use of the Pulmonx Chartis System to plan valve treatment. The Zephyr Endobronchial Valve is a minimally invasive device intended to treat patients with emphysema. Emphysema patients suffer from hyperinflation, an increase in volume of the diseased portions of their lungs, which then compresses the healthier areas. The Zephyr EBV therapy involves bronchoscopic placement of one-way valves designed to reduce volume in the diseased portion of the lungs, thereby improving the ability of the healthier portions of the lungs to function. This is expected to relieve the patient's symptoms, allowing them to increase their activity levels, while promoting better overall health. The brief procedure is relatively easy for physicians to perform, and unlike other presently available Lung Volume Reduction therapies which are irreversible, the Zephyr implant can later be removed if necessary.
