Company Overview of Pulmonx Inc
Pulmonx Inc. engages in designing, developing, manufacturing, and marketing minimally-invasive medical devices and technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary disorders. It offers Chartis Pulmonary Assessment System, which helps pulmonologists with lobe-specific information about a patient’s lung, and enables them to plan valve treatments to account for anatomical variations in the lungs of individual patients; and Zephyr Endobronchial Valve (EBV), a diagnostic and therapeutic solution to predict and achieve reduction of volume in the diseased portion of the lung without the risks and complications of surgery. The company’s products are used to deliver endoscopic lung volume re...

Pulmonx Inc Key Developments
Pulmonx Announces the Launch of Tablet Version of Chartis Pulmonary Assessment System
Sep 28 15
Pulmonx announced the launch of a tablet version of its Chartis Pulmonary Assessment System, a diagnostic tool designed to identify optimal patients for Zephyr® Endobronchial Valve (EBV) therapy. The Chartis Tablet is portable, has a small footprint and is designed to be easier for physicians to use during pre-procedural evaluation. The new tablet will be showcased at the European Respiratory Society International Congress (ERS) this week in Amsterdam. It will also be commercially available immediately in Europe, where the Zephyr EBV and Chartis System have received the CE Mark. The Chartis System is a proprietary endoscopic, catheter-based diagnostic system that identifies collateral ventilation by enabling precise and real-time assessment of flow and pressure readings for specific lobes in the lungs. This critical information allows physicians to select those patients with no or low collateral ventilation for Zephyr EBV treatment, and helps them predict with high accuracy those patients that are most likely to benefit from the therapy. Multiple randomized controlled trials have demonstrated that patients selected using the Chartis System and treated with the Zephyr EBV have experienced statistically significant improvements in lung function, exercise capacity and quality of life. More than 65% of severe emphysema patients have been shown to have low collateral ventilation in one or more target lobes of the lung, demonstrating a large potential market for the Zephyr EBV treatment. The Zephyr EBV is a tiny, one-way valve placed in the lungs to block airflow to diseased regions in order to achieve lung volume reduction. Zephyr EBVs have been implanted globally in more than 10,000 patients. With Chartis capabilities in a tablet, physicians can now place the system in a convenient location that allows them to visually focus on the procedure, ensuring the diagnostic is run as intended and that patient selection for the EBV procedure is as accurate as possible. The tablet has a high resolution touch screen and is Bluetooth-enabled for ease of use. It also includes an HDMI-out that enables picture-in-picture capabilities. The Chartis assessment can be performed during spontaneous breathing or mechanical ventilation (including jet ventilation) under general anesthesia.
Pulmonx Announces the Lancet of Results from the BeLieVeR-HIFi clinical trial
Jul 1 15
Pulmonx announced the publication in the Lancet of results from the BeLieVeR-HIFi clinical trial. BeLieVeR-HIFi is a prospective, double-blind, randomized, sham-controlled trial comparing use of Pulmonx’s minimally invasive valve treatment for severe emphysema patients – the Zephyr Endobronchial Valve – to a sham bronchoscopy procedure. The study exceeded its primary endpoint, demonstrating a 20.9% average improvement in lung function (FEV1) in treated patients compared to control patients. Clinical and statistical significance on several secondary endpoints was also demonstrated, including exercise capacity and gas trapping. There was no statistical difference between groups in safety.
