ERT and UCLA Initiate Innovative Pilot Program for Chronically Ill Patients
Date:2/6/2012

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In a joint announcement today, the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and eResearchTechnology, Inc. (ERT), (Nasdaq: ERT), report the launch of the CLEAR Study, an innovative program to help patients suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).  COPD is a leading and increasingly prevalent disease which, according to the World Health Organization, will become the world's third most common cause of death by 2020.

COPD is a progressive and chronic inflammatory disease of airways that typically occurs in middle-aged and older patients.  There is no cure, only therapies to manage the symptoms and seek to prevent acute and debilitating events such as pulmonary exacerbations.  These exacerbations are an important cause of disability and further decrease in lung function, which typically require medical therapy at the home or in the hospital. Therefore, early identification and prevention of exacerbations are important, can improve the quality of life of the patients, and can delay or decrease the demand for expensive medical care.To identify symptoms and concerns early, ERT and UCLA will be providing enhanced services to help the patients outside the physician's office and beyond the normal process of care.
The twelve month study is specifically designed to test whether remote health monitoring:

  • Is feasible in patients with moderate-severe COPD;
  • Improves treatment adherence, symptoms, activity level and quality of life; and
  • Enables early detection of COPD exacerbations, facilitating early interventions and reducing health related expenditures.
  • The program will operate as a randomized study for patients over 40 years old receiving their care in the Los Angeles community. The program brings together home based spirometry, activity monitoring, adhe
