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. Pulmonx has now assumed global sales, marketing, customer support, and future development programs of the Emphasys(R) EBV (formerly known as Zephyr(R) EBV).

"This acquisition provides Pulmonx with a strengthened ability to deliver innovative therapeutic solutions to emphysema patients and their physicians," said Niyazi Beyhan, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Pulmonx. "Our ongoing pre-clinical and clinical research programs provide encouraging evidence that the combined offering of the Emphasys EBV and our Chartis System will deliver a promising solution for endobronchial lung volume reduction (ELVR) that includes an effective assessment tool to optimize patient selection and outcomes."

Treatment of emphysema by ELVR using the Emphasys EBV has been shown in the Endobronchial Valve for Emphysema PalliatioN Trial, known as VENT, to improve lung function, exercise tolerance and quality of life for some patients.(1) More recent research suggests that inter-lobar collateral flow in the lungs, known as collateral ventilation, can limit the effectiveness of ELVR.(2),(3) Pulmonx has developed its Chartis System to identify the presence of collateral ventilation in the lungs. This may enable physicians to better identify patients who could benefit from ELVR and also confirm the effectiveness of valve placement by measuring air flow following EBV deployment.
