XVIVO Perfusion has sold an XPS™ to the second largest lung transplant clinic in China. The purpose is to start EVLP (Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion)-research at the CHINA-JAPAN FRIENDSHIP HOSPITAL in Beijing.
China is currently the fastest growing lung transplant market in the world, with a 35 % increase in lung transplants in 2018 (403 lung transplants performed). Due to the increased need for lung transplantation the number of clinics authorized to perform lung transplants has increased from 20 clinics in 2016 to 37 clinics in 2018.

They will investigate the effects of EVLP on Lung transplantation. The research intention is to evaluate EVLP in the clinical environment in China, which will add Chinese data to the existing EVLP data from North America and Europe. XVIVO Perfusion has initiated a registration process of the XPS™ with the NMPA, the Chinese regulatory authority. In partnership with XVIVO Perfusion´s Distributor in China (Shanghai Genext Medical Technology Co., Ltd), the company plan to scientifically support the Lung transplant clinic of CHINA- JAPAN FRIENDSHIP HOSPITAL in Beijing.

Considering the size of the population and the fast increase in the standard of living and healthcare, China is expected to become an important market for XVIVO in the near future”, says Magnus Nilsson, CEO of XVIVO Perfusion.
