Echo Therapeutics Reports Symphony™ tCGM System Ahead of Schedule
Date:2/17/2011

FRANKLIN, Mass., Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Echo Therapeutics, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: 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, announced that development of the commercially ready Symphony tCGM System is ahead of schedule.  The company said that the system will be ready for demonstration in the second quarter and it will be used in a clinical trial shortly thereafter, replacing the prototype used in earlier clinical trials.  

Echo said it anticipates that upon completion of the development work no further changes will be made to the Symphony tCGM System, and that the device will be the one used for sale, subject to positive clinical studies and FDA market clearance of the product.  The addressable market for needle-free, continuous wireless glucose monitoring in the hospital critical care setting exceeds $1 billion annually and the global glucose monitoring market exceeds $12 billion annually.

"With the successful completion of our recent financing we now have sufficient capital to accelerate the product development work of our Symphony tCGM System," said Patrick T. Mooney, M.D., Chairman and CEO of Echo Therapeutics.  "We are now prepared to complete our final development work and clinical validation.  This next generation Symphony device incorporates substantial improvements beyond the prototype used in earlier studies and we look forward to validating those improvements in clinical testing."  

The Symphony tCGM System incorporates Echo's proprietary Prelude SkinPrep System, with a noninvasive wireless biosensor and a wireless monitor or handheld device for needle-free, continuous monitoring of glucose levels.
