Pulmonx Corporation is a commercial-stage medical device company that provides minimally invasive treatment for patients with severe emphysema, a form of COPD. The Pulmonx solution, which is comprised of the Zephyr Endobronchial Valve (Zephyr Valve), the Chartis Pulmonary Assessment System (Chartis System) and the StratX Lung Analysis Platform, is designed to treat severe emphysema patients who, despite medical management, are still profoundly symptomatic and either do not want or are ineligible for surgical approaches. We have a compelling body of clinical evidence with over 100 scientific articles published regarding the clinical benefits of Zephyr Valves. Multiple randomized controlled clinical trials have demonstrated that patients selected with the Chartis System and successfully treated with Zephyr Valves have shown statistically and clinically significant improvements in lung function, exercise capacity and quality of life compared to medical management alone. In June 2018, Pulmonx received pre-market approval through the FDA’s ‘breakthrough device’ pathway to commercialize our Zephyr Valve. The Zephyr Valve is now commercially available in more than 25 countries, with over 76,000 valves used to treat more than 19,000 patients. For more information, visit www.MyLungsMyLife.com
