Echo Therapeutics Announces Positive Results of Clinical Trial of its Symphony® Transdermal Continuous Glucose Monitoring (tCGM) System in Patients With Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes
Date:12/6/2011

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Echo Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ECTE), a company developing the Symphony tCGM System as a non-invasive, wireless, transdermal continuous glucose monitoring (tCGM) system and the Prelude® SkinPrep System for transdermal drug delivery, today announced positive results from its clinical study of its Symphony tCGM System in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.  Data from the study confirm that Symphony successfully monitors the broad range of blood glucose values seen in people with diabetes.  Echo also announced that it plans to conduct a study in critical care patients in the near term.

"This study represents another major step in our Symphony development program.  We have now shown that Symphony represents a novel approach for the tracking and trending of glucose in patients with diabetes and holds great potential to make a meaningful impact in the management of this growing disease.  Importantly, a recent, major U.S. study demonstrated that real-time, continuous glucose monitoring gives people with type 2 diabetes, in addition to those with type 1 diabetes, improved blood glucose control," said Patrick T. Mooney, M.D., Chairman and CEO of Echo Therapeutics.  "We are extremely pleased with the outcome of the study and look forward to the continued success of our Symphony tCGM program, including the upcoming trial in critical care patients."

Study Results

Using over 2,600 Symphony tCGM glucose readings from the twenty (20) study subjects paired with reference blood glucose measurements, CG-EGA showed that 94.4% of the readings were clinically accurate and 2.5% were benign errors with a combined A+B of 96.9%. The MARD for the study was 12.6%.  Values for blood glucose measurements ranged from 38 to 399 mg/dL. There were no adverse events reported from the Prelude skin pe
