Randomized Comparison of the RePneu Lung Volume Reduction Coil (LVRC) to Standard of Care for the Treatment of Emphysema (RESET Study)

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
PneumRx, Inc. Identifier:
First received: April 1, 2011
Last updated: January 22, 2014
Last verified: May 2012
The objective of this study is to demonstrate the safety and performance of the PneumRx, Inc. Lung Volume Reduction Coil (LVRC) in a population of patients with emphysema. The PneumRx, Inc. LVRC is used as a less invasive alternative to lung volume reduction surgery.

Condition Intervention Phase
Emphysema Device: Lung Volume Reduction Coil (LVRC) (PneumRx) Device: Control Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Randomized Controlled Trial Of RePneu (LVRC) Endobronchial Coils For The Treatment Of Severe Emphysema With Hyperinflation (RESET Study)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) [ Time Frame: three month Follow-Up Visit ]
    The primary efficacy endpoint will be the difference between treatment and control groups in the change in St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) from Baseline (Pre-Treatment Visit) to the three month Follow-Up Visit.

Enrollment: 47
Study Start Date: February 2010
Study Completion Date: September 2013
Primary Completion Date: June 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
