10:05 EDTMDTMedtronic announces first implants in AdaptResponse CRT clinical trial
Medtronic announced the first implants in a clinical trial that will compare patient and healthcare system outcomes in heart failure patients who have cardiac resynchronization therapy devices with the AdaptivCRT feature enabled versus patients receiving standard CRT. The AdaptResponse trial will assess the superiority of the AdaptivCRT algorithm, which preserves normal heart rhythms and automatically adjusts to patients' needs to customize therapy. It is expected to enroll approximately 3K patients worldwide. The primary endpoint of the AdaptResponse trial is a combination of all-cause mortality and the rate of medical intervention for worsening heart failure. The trial also will examine the incidence of atrial fibrillation in enrolled patients. Other secondary endpoints will assess patient quality of life measures as well as cost-effectiveness of CRT devices with the AdaptivCRT feature relative to standard CRT. Patients will receive a CRT-pacemaker or CRT-defibrillator equipped with the AdaptivCRT algorithm, and will be randomized 1:1 to either treatment or control groups. Patients will be followed at three and six months after randomization, and then every six months until trial closure.

05:42 EDTJNJIllumina announces strategic partnership with AstraZeneca, Sanofi, Janssen
Illumina (ILMN) announced it has formed collaborative partnerships with leading pharmaceutical companies to develop a universal next-generation sequencing, or NGS,-based oncology test system. The system will be used for clinical trials of targeted cancer therapies with a goal of developing and commercializing a multi-gene panel for therapeutic selection, resulting in a more comprehensive tool for precision medicine. Initial strategic partners include AstraZeneca (AZN), Janssen Biotech, a Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) company, and Sanofi (SNY). Illumina is working with the strategic partners to develop assays that detect and measure multiple variants simultaneously to support partners’ clinical trials, with the objectives of securing regulatory agency approvals and test commercialization. In parallel, Illumina is working with key thought leaders to set standards for NGS-based assays in routine clinical oncology practice, as well as to define regulatory frameworks to enable this new testing paradigm. Together, Illumina and its strategic partners aim to transition from single-analyte companion diagnostics to panel-based assays that select for “companion therapeutics.”
