First U.S. Patients Treated in PneumRx RENEW Pivotal Study for Treatment of Severe Emphysema

tions such as diabetes[2]  and heart disease.[3] 

As there is no cure for emphysema, the goal of current treatment methods such as drug therapy (inhaled steroids, bronchodilators and antibiotics), supplemental oxygen, and pulmonary rehabilitation (breathing exercises) is to relieve symptoms and teach people how to live with the disease.  Eventually, the disease will exhaust these treatment methods, leaving the patient with very few options for symptom relief.[4]

About PneumRx Inc.

PneumRx, Inc. is a Mountain View, CA based medical device start-up focused on developing minimally-invasive solutions for unmet medical needs in pulmonary medicine.   The flagship product, the RePneu® Lung Volume Reduction Coil, is designed to reduce lung volume and restore elastic recoil to improve lung function, exercise capacity, and quality of life for patients with emphysema.  Made from shape-memory Nitinol, the RePneu Coil is designed to compress hyperinflated tissue and tether small airways to prevent airway collapse without blocking or inducing fibrosis, a key advantage over other endoscopic techniques.   The RePneu LVRC is limited to investigational use in the U.S.A.  Read more at www.pneumrx.com.
