n extraordinary level of involvement from all patients, and we were encouraged by the very high level of interest from patients who wanted to participate," said Dr. Castro, Principal Investigator at Washington University, St. Louis, the largest enrolling site in the U.S. "This high level of patient interest and involvement in this complex and time-consuming trial reflects the substantial clinical need that exists for new treatment options in this population of patients with severe asthma."

About Bronchial Thermoplasty Delivered by the Alair System

Bronchial thermoplasty is a non-drug procedure for asthma. The treatment is performed through the working channel of a standard flexible bronchoscope that is introduced through a patient's nose or mouth, and into their lungs. The tip of the small diameter Alair(R) catheter is expanded to contact the walls of targeted airways. Controlled thermal energy is then delivered to the airway walls to reduce the presence of airway smooth muscle that narrows the airways in patients with asthma. The minimally invasive procedure, like many other flexible endoscopy procedures, is done under light anesthesia, and the patient returns home the same day.

CAUTION: Alair System is an Investigational Device. It is limited by United States law to investigational use. To be used by Qualified Investigators only.
