MENLO PARK, Calif., Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Gala Therapeutics (Gala), a clinical-stage developer of medical devices

to treat pulmonary disease, today announced that data from a Late-Breaking Abstract from a first-in-human study of the Rheox™ system will be presented at the European Respiratory Society (ERS) in Paris, France on
Monday, September 17, 2018
at 11:00 AM CEST in Room 7.3P.  During the session, Professor Arschang Valipour, MD, FCCP, will present initial data from the multicenter, single-armed safety study of the RheOx system in patients with Chronic Bronchitis.  The first-in-human study in Chronic Bronchitis was designed to provide initial safety and proof-of-concept data for the Bronchial Rheoplasty procedure which targets the cells responsible for mucus hypersecretion.

"We look forward to sharing initial data from our Chronic Bronchitis program in an oral presentation at ERS, one of the premier academic forums for interventional pulmonology," said Jonathan Waldstreicher, MD and CEO of Gala.  "We have accomplished what drugs have not by developing a medical device to directly treat the mucus-producing cells in the airways that cause debilitating cough and mucus symptoms.  With this data, Gala is at the forefront of the next generation of targeted Interventional Pulmonary technologies, offering clinically meaningful outcomes to patients."
