ERT’s At-Home Cardiac Safety Assessment Ensures Clinical Trial Continuity

ERT

Company’s expertise, infrastructure and flexibility enable remote ECG assessment for fast-tracked COVID-19 vaccines /therapies and other critical pharmaceuticals

PHILADELPHIA – March 30, 2020 – ERT, a global data and technology company that captures critical endpoint data while minimizing uncertainty and risk in clinical trials, today announced a cardiac safety solution that helps biopharmaceutical researchers continue important clinical trials during current global ‘stay home’ mandates. The solution enables clinician-administered ECG readings ─ using ERT’s provisioned, FDA-cleared devices or other investigative site–owned equipment ─ to evaluate the safety of new vaccines and medical treatments from patients’ homes.

Clinical site visits by patients may not be possible as healthcare providers focus their efforts on patients who require urgent care as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to keep their clinical trials on track, biopharmaceutical researchers need innovative solutions that enable safety and efficacy data to be collected from patients’ homes.

“With so many new compounds being developed and fast-tracked through FDA for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19, it’s more important than ever for researchers to have access to the tools that meet their development timelines while keeping patient safety at the forefront,” said Ellen Street, Executive Vice President of Cardiac Safety of ERT. “We’re pleased to apply our expertise, proven infrastructure, and flexibility to help researchers meet their development objectives; especially now during the uncertain times the industry is facing.”

ERT’s infrastructure enables the normalization and precise over-read of ECGs captured digitally via ERT’s provisioned devices or on paper via site-owned equipment. Investigative site personnel conducting home visits can capture this important safety data and yield comparable values, regardless of how the data was captured. ERT scientists are available to consult with researchers on how ‘at-home’ ECG readings can ensure patient safety while keeping both their current and new trials on track.

“With ERT’s At-home ECG solution, clinical researchers can continue assessing the cardiovascular risk of new medical treatments, even while patients are adhering to local and nationally mandated quarantines,” said Robert Kleiman, MD, VP, Cardiology and Chief Medical Officer, ERT. “By capturing these readings remotely, researchers can evaluate the cardiovascular effects of new medications and enable patients to continue treatment, which may be critical for those with life-threatening conditions.”

ERT offers additional capabilities that enable remote patient data collection for trial continuity, including respiratory trial support for spirometry and ECG assessments conducted by investigative site personnel in the patient’s home.

The Rare Disease Patients Experience

When planning a clinical trial for a rare disease, it is important to have a holistic understanding of your patient population. You want to be aware of where your patients are coming from, and what it is like to walk in their shoes. These patients need your trial just as much as you need them; even from the earliest stages, conceptualize your rare disease trial as an altruistic relationship between the patient population and your study.
