Clinical Data Demonstrates Long-Term Safety of Boston Scientific's Alair[TM]Bronchial Thermoplasty System
Date:9/26/2011

istent with recently published five-year data from the Asthma Intervention Research (AIR) Trial, which also demonstrated a strong long-term safety profile for the Alair[TM] Bronchial Thermoplasty System.  These data are also consistent with two-year results from the Asthma Intervention Research 2 (AIR2) Trial, which demonstrated safety and long-term persistence of effect.  Clinical results from the AIR2 Trial at one year showed 32 percent reduction in asthma attacks, 84 percent reduction in emergency room visits for respiratory symptoms, 66 percent reduction in days lost from work, school or other daily activities due to asthma and improved asthma quality of life.

The Alair[TM] Bronchial Thermoplasty System has been available in the UK since June 2011 and in other European countries since September 2011.  Initial BT cases were performed with positive results at Gartnavel General Hospital in Glasgow and Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester.  Most recently, physicians at Odense University Hospital in Denmark have performed initial BT procedures on severe asthma patients.

BT is a bronchoscopic procedure performed under moderate sedation.  The Alair[TM] Bronchial Thermoplasty Systemdelivers thermal energy to the airway wall in a precise and controlled manner to reduce excessive airway smooth muscle.  It is designed to decrease the ability of the airways to constrict, thereby reducing the frequency and severity of asthma attacks.  Designed to complement conventional asthma drug treatments, clinical data show bronchial thermoplasty is safe and effective in the treatment of severe, persistent asthma in patients 18 years and older whose asthma is not well controlled with current medications.

Prof. Neil Thomson and Dr. Steve Bicknell at Gartnavel General Hospital were the first physicians in Eur
