Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in respiratory volume/total lung capacity (RV/TLC) ratio [ Time Frame: 12 Weeks following final treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in RV/TLC ratio [ Time Frame: 24 and 48 weeks following treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from baseline in forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) (post bronchodilator) [ Time Frame: 12, 24, 48 weeks following treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from baseline in MRC dyspnea score [ Time Frame: 12, 24, 48 weeks following treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from baseline in 6 minute walk test (MWT) [ Time Frame: 12, 24, 48 weeks following treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from baseline in disease-specific health related quality of life assessment (SGRQ) [ Time Frame: 12, 24, 48 weeks following treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of AeriSeal treatment in patients with advanced homogeneous and heterogeneous emphysema.

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Genders Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have a diagnosis of advanced emphysema as defined by FEV1/FVC<70% predicted, FEV1 of <50% predicted, TLC > 100% predicted, and RV > 135% predicted.
  • Patients must have persistent symptoms despite medical therapy and either not be candidates for Lung Volume Reduction Surgery (LVRS) or have elected not to undergo LVRS.
  • Patients must be > 40 years of age, have symptoms despite medical therapy, and have none of the prespecified co-morbid conditions that could influence study outcomes or their ability to tolerate bronchoscopy.
