BOSTON and LONDON, Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CSA Medical announces its upcoming mini-symposium at the ERS Conference, taking place on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 in London, England. The symposium will highlight early data from its feasibility study utilizing the RejuvenAir® Metered Cryospray™ System, which is under development for the treatment of chronic bronchitis.
The symposium will be chaired by James Donohue, MD (Chapel Hill, USA). Presenters will be Gerard Criner, MD (Philadelphia, USA), Ellen Sheets, MD (Lexington, USA), James Coad, MD (Morgantown, USA), Dirk-Jan Slebos, MD (Groningen, NL), and Pallav Shah, MD (London, UK).
"This symposium marks a milestone in the RejuvenAir program, as the data we will present encompasses the initial treatment of chronic bronchitis patients and their 60 day follow-up. This, combined with our first public disclosure of the science behind the RejuvenAir System, will convey how the rejuvenative properties of liquid nitrogen may be beneficial to chronic bronchitis patients," said Ellen Sheets, MD, CEO CSA Medical.
Chronic bronchitis is a subset of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). A chronic bronchitis diagnosis is defined by cough with productive sputum of three months duration for two consecutive years. In addition to a chronic inflammation, cough and increased production of mucus, chronic bronchitis may or may not present with obstruction/partially blocked airways due to swelling and excess mucus in the bronchi, or shortness of breath (dyspnea).
