Asthmatx Positive Panel Outcome Good Sign for Pulmonology Companies

Executive Summary

The FDA's Anesthesiology and Respiratory Device Panel delivered good news to the interventional pulmonology sector by issuing a positive recommendation for Asthmatx Inc.'s Alair Bronchial Thermoplasty System, a treatment for severe asthma. The positive news came nearly a year after the same panel voted not to recommend Emphasys Inc.'s lung airway valve as a treatment for emphysema.
