"This has been a year of milestones for Uptake Medical," said R. King Nelson, president and chief executive officer, Uptake Medical. "This first commercial patient case is the culmination of multiple successes including the completion and subsequent publication of the positive results from the VAPOR trial and receipt of the CE Mark for the InterVapor System.

About Emphysema/COPD
The global incidence of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), which includes emphysema, is on the rise and will become the third leading cause of death by 2030. In the U.S., where nearly 5 million people are diagnosed with emphysema, it already holds this position with one person dying every 4 minutes from COPD. Debilitating and costly, nearly $50 billion was spent addressing the direct and indirect costs associated with COPD in the U.S. in 2010.
