Beyond Air, Inc. (NASDAQ: XAIR), a clinical-stage medical device and biopharmaceutical company focused on developing inhaled nitric oxide (NO) for the treatment of patients with respiratory conditions, including serious lung infections and pulmonary hypertension, and, through its affiliate Beyond Cancer, ultra-high concentration nitric oxide (UNO) for the treatment of solid tumors, today announced an update to the expectations for U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of LungFit® PH for the treatment of persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, or PPHN.

Based upon our ongoing communications with the FDA, the Company no longer believes that the U.S. commercial launch of LungFit® PH will take place prior to December 31, 2021. Beyond Air remains on track to receive CE Mark for LungFit® PH in Europe in the first half of calendar year 2022.

“The Beyond Air team continues to work towards our goal of bringing LungFit® PH, the groundbreaking nitric oxide generator and delivery system, to NICUs across the United States and the world as soon as possible,” commented Steve Lisi, Chairman and CEO of Beyond Air. “We commend the FDA for their continued commitment to provide us with a comprehensive review of our application. We shall continue to collaboratively work with the FDA to approve LungFit® PH.”
