Leading Biotechnology Company Awards Phase III Cardiac Safety Study to iCardiac
Date:9/24/2009

iCardiac continues #1 market position in automated QT studies

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) September 24, 2009 -- iCardiac Technologies, Inc., a leader in advanced cardiac core lab services and QT analysis, announced today that a leading biotechnology company has awarded iCardiac a multi-center international Phase III cardiac safety study. iCardiac will provide end-to-end study management, site logistics and scientific reporting, as well as advanced ECG analytics. The study will utilize iCardiac's Highly Automated QT(sm) to dramatically improve study precision.

"We are pleased that the industry continues the rapid adoption of iCardiac's automated QT methods, which have demonstrated superiority to traditional manual or semi-automated ECG evaluation," said Sasha Latypova, Executive Vice President. "With this contract award, iCardiac continues its clear scientific and market leadership for automated QT studies with a larger number of studies completed or contracted than other commercial ECG core laboratories."

In October 2005, the FDA introduced a new guidance for industry (ICH E14) requiring the evaluation of pro-arrhythmic potential of new drugs by measuring the QT segment of ECGs collected in clinical trials. The dissatisfaction among pharmaceutical developers with the poor precision, high rate of false positives/negatives and high cost of the "gold standard" manual or semi-automated QT measurements has lead to efforts toward providing more advanced cardiac safety analytics.
