US 10 mL Bronchoscopic Lung Volume Reduction (BLVR) Phase 1 Emphysema Study - Initial Formulation

2014-07-23 21:52:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the Aeris Bronchoscopic Lung Volume Reduction (BLVR) System is safe in patients with advanced emphysema.

Description

Patients with emphysema currently have limited treatment choices. Many patients are treated with steroids and inhaled medications, which often provide little or no benefit. Recently, lung volume reduction surgery has become an accepted therapy for emphysema. Lung volume reduction surgery involves the removal of a diseased portion of the lung, which enables the remaining, healthier portions of the lung to function better. This procedure, although effective, is complicated and risky.

Aeris Therapeutics has developed the Aeris Bronchoscopic Lung Volume Reduction System for treatment of patients with advanced emphysema. The Aeris BLVR System is designed to reduce lung volume without surgery. Patients are treated under anesthesia using a bronchoscope to direct treatment to the most damaged areas of the lung. The treatment is expected to reduce lung volume by shrinking the diseased areas of the lung. The purpose of the current study is to find out whether the Aeris BLVR System is safe in patients with advanced emphysema. The risks associated with the treatment are expected to be similar to those associated with general anesthesia and bronchoscopy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Enlargement of air spaces distal to the TERMINAL BRONCHIOLES where gas-exchange normally takes place. This is usually due to destruction of the alveolar wall. Pulmonary emphysema can be classified by the location and distribution of the lesions.

A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.

Measurement of the volume of gas in the lungs, including that which is trapped in poorly communicating air spaces. It is of particular use in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and emphysema. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

A lung with reduced markings on its chest radiograph and increased areas of transradiancy (hyperlucency). A hyperlucent lung is usually associated with pulmonary emphysema or PNEUMOTHORAX.

Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
