Pulmonx Reports Positive Data from AeriSeal System Trial
On September 05, 2022, Pulmonx Corporation, experts in minimally invasive treatments for severe lung disease, announced the results of preliminary findings from the CONVERT study.
Data from the study’s first 40 patients showed that 78% of those who had subsequent therapy with Zephyr Valves after receiving the AeriSeal System had their collateral ventilation (CV) status successfully converted.
The AeriSeal System makes the patient having severe cases of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)/emphysema eligible to undergo Bronchoscopic Lung Volume Reduction (BLVR) with Zephyr Valves by closing collateral air channels in a target lung lobe. Zephyr Valves are suitable treatment options for patients having untreated collateral ventilation (CV+) in their lungs. Zephyr valves are found to be effective in patients with COPD/emphysema by improving lung function, quality of life, and exercise capacity and can be used to treat patients once the target lobe is converted from CV+ to CV-.
The AeriSeal System is used in the CONVERT research to stop collateral airflow. Zephr valves are placed to address hyperinflation of the target lobe once the treated lobe tests negative for CV-, easing emphysema symptoms without significant surgery. Zephyr Valves lead to a mean reduction in Target Lobe Volume Reduction (TLVR) of more than one liter.
The clinical results of Bronchoscopic Lung Volume Reduction (BLVR) with Zephyr Valves have not been released because the CONVERT Study is still in progress. However, the AeriSystem successfully closed collateral air channels and enabled successful clinical outcomes after treatment with Zephyr Valves, according to the recent findings from a single-center feasibility study at Macquarie University Hospital in Australia.
At 6 months, AeriSeal and Zephyr Valve treated CV+ patients experienced clinically meaningful improvements similar to improvements in CV- patients treated with Zephyr Valves alone.
The improvements witnessed were:
- Lung function (FEV1 increase of 19.7%, Residual Volume decrease of 16.2%)
- Quality of life (SGRQ score decrease of 15.1 points)
- Exercise capacity (Six-Minute Walk Distance increase of 77.2 meters
In the Australian feasibility study, no patients reported major adverse reactions; 20% of patients in the CONVERT Study had an inflammatory response after receiving AeriSeal; all of these reactions were temporary, were treated medically. According to the information that is currently available, patients who have collateral ventilation can successfully undergo BLVR with Zephyr Valves following closure of the fissure gap with the AeriSeal System.
