Acquisition of Zephyr(R) EBV Technology Enables Pulmonx to Develop Both Assessment Tools and Therapeutic Solutions for Emphysema

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Pulmonx, a medical device company focused on advancing therapies for patients with emphysema, announced today that it has acquired all of the assets of Emphasys Medical, including its endobronchial valve (EBV) technology platform and associated intellectual property.
