Echo Therapeutics Initiates Clinical Trials of its Symphony tCGM System in Critical Care Patients
Date:1/24/2012

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 24, 2012 /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 that it is initiating clinical studies of its Symphony tCGM System in critical care patients. The company expects to complete and announce the results of the studies in the near term.

"We are very excited to initiate patient enrollment in our next studies of the Symphony system in the important hospital critical care setting," said Patrick T. Mooney, M.D., Chairman and CEO of Echo Therapeutics.  "The goal of these trials is to demonstrate Symphony's performance in the large and emerging critical care market for non-invasive continuous glucose monitoring. We believe that Symphony addresses this unmet need, potentially improving patient outcomes."

Echo's clinical studies will enroll up to thirty (30) critical care patients and will compare data obtained from its Symphony tCGM System with the YSI 2300 STAT Plus Glucose Analyzer.  The studies are expected to collect more than 1,000 data pairs to be used in the analyses by taking frequent reference glucose measurements for 24 hours.  The data from the studies will be blinded to study subjects and study personnel. A comparison of the data relative to the blood glucose values will be used to assess the accuracy of Symphony.

Hyperglycemia is common in critically ill patients, even in those that do not have a history of diabetes. Intensive insulin therapy and frequent glucose monitoring in critically ill patients has been proven in clinical studies to significantly reduce patient morbidity and mortality.  Intensive insulin therapy
