15:48 EDTISISGenzyme, Isis present KYNAMRO data at AHA meeting
Genzyme, a Sanofi (SNY) company, and Isis Pharmaceuticals (ISIS) announced that new two-year data from a phase 3 long-term extension study of KYNAMRO injection was presented at a scientific session at the annual American Heart Association meeting. In the study, a retrospective analysis showed that patients treated with KYNAMRO for a mean of two years had a significant reduction in Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events compared to two years prior to therapy. The rate of MACE in patients treated with KYNAMRO for two years were adjudicated by an independent committee and compared to the rate of MACE in the same patients based on their medical history prior to treatment with KYNAMRO. In this analysis, MACE were identified in 62% of patients during two years prior to KYNAMRO treatment, and 9% of patients during a mean of 24.4 months after initiation of treatment with KYNAMRO.

Medidata (MDSO) announced the completion of a method development project conducted in partnership with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to evaluate the impact of unifying mobile health, or mHealth, devices with cloud-based technologies in a clinical trial setting. The joint initiative assessed the capabilities of mHealth tools and evaluated how they could be used to enable a new model for clinical trial conduct that aligns site and patient needs with faster study execution and reduced costs. The collaborative project, which took place at GSK’s Human Performance Lab, demonstrated that mHealth technologies have the power to comprehensively collect large volumes of objective data that is reliable, secure and analysis-ready, and provides real-time, continuous insight into the well being of patients. All of the data collected was audited and is compliant with FDA regulations. Additionally, the effort indicated that mobile devices can support the long-term goal of lessening the burden on patients participating in studies by streamlining routine procedures, eliminating unnecessary ones and reducing visits to clinical trial sites.
