XPS™ to be delivered to the first clinic in France
Hôpital FOCH in Paris is the first clinic in France that has decided to use XPS™. Delivery and installation of XPS™ is estimated to take place at the end of March 2016.
The clinic in Paris has more than 25 years’ experience of lung transplantation and is one of the leading lung transplant clinics in France, with a well-reputed Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion (EVLP) program.
Under the leadership of Professor Alain Chapelier, the clinic in Paris has carried out EVLP using the so-called manual STEEN Solution™ method. “We will now be able to continue to explore EVLP using XPS™ and STEEN Solution™,” says Dr Edouard Sage, who is in charge of the clinical EVLP program.
XPS™ is the only CE-marked and FDA approved integrated system on the market today which gives the user the flexibility to perform evaluation of lungs before transplantation through a standardized and simplified procedure. Use of XPS™ has shown good clinical results at 18 clinics in the US, many of which are national leaders in their field. Six XPS™ contracts have now been signed by European clinics, giving them access to the XPS™ system for lung transplantation, and the company notes continuing high interest for the XPS™ in Europe.
“We are delighted that the FOCH clinic in Paris, which has great experience of transplanting lungs after performing EVLP with STEEN Solution™ with good clinical results, is now moving on to a more standardized and simplified EVLP using the XPS™ system,” says Magnus Nilsson, CEO of XVIVO Perfusion.
