SOLNA, Sweden--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aerocrine AB (STO:AERO-B) announces that the Japanese authority (PMDA) has approved its FeNO (fractional exhaled nitric oxide)-measuring device, NIOX MINO ® from 2008 as a tool for assessing patients with airway inflammation such as asthma. The Japanese Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA), decided on 28 of March 2013, after a thorough review, to grant the 2008 version of the NIOX MINO® marketing approval in Japan. As Aerocrine introduced a new version in 2010 of NIOX MINO, the approval will have limited impact on the company’s sales in Japan in the near future.
