Boston Scientific to Acquire Asthmatx
Date:9/20/2010

nagement of severe asthma.  Bronchial thermoplasty was named one of the "Top Ten Medical Innovations for 2007" by the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

"The benefits we have seen with bronchial thermoplasty are impressive and have included a substantial improvement in patients' asthma symptoms," said Mario Castro, M.D., Washington University, St. Louis and Principal Investigator for the pivotal Asthma Intervention Research 2 (AIR2) clinical trial.  "Our data demonstrated clinically meaningful improvements in key outcomes including a reduction in severe asthma exacerbations, a reduction in emergency room visits and a trend toward decreased hospitalizations for asthma.  Treated patients missed less time from work, school and other daily activities because of their asthma, and they experienced an overall improvement in their quality of life."

"Boston Scientific's acquisition of Asthmatx demonstrates our commitment to providing the most advanced technology solutions to interventional pulmonologists and their patients," said Michael Phalen, President of Boston Scientific's Endoscopy Division.  "This first-of-its-kind interventional treatment option for adult patients with severe asthma is a significant medical advance with the potential of substantially reducing medical costs, as demonstrated by an 84 percent reduction in emergency room visits in the AIR2 trial."

"The acquisition of Asthmatx represents an important step in the execution of our strategy to realign Boston Scientific's portfolio," said Ray Elliott, President and Chief Executive Officer of Boston Scientific.  "Given the large underserved patient population and this innovative technology, we expect this transaction to provide meaningful revenue growth in the midterm.  We will continue to pursue additional Priority Growth Initiatives to strengthen our Company by buying or building products we understand, to be sold through sales forces we already have."
