NewCardio Leadership to Present Two Abstracts at ISCE Conference
Date:3/31/2009

Company to Present Data on the Use of its Proprietary Technology to Provide Accurate, Fully Automated ECG Analysis for Drug Cardiac Safety at 34th Annual ISCE Meeting

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NewCardio, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: NWCI) a cardiac diagnostic and services company, today announced that senior leadership will present clinical data from two abstracts and discuss applications for its proprietary technology at the 34th Annual International Society for Computerized Electrocardiology (ISCE) Conference. The conference is scheduled from April 23-27, 2009 in Panama City Beach, Florida.

The Society is devoted to the advancement of electrocardiography through the application of computer methods and its annual scientific conference brings together scientists, clinicians, engineers and policy makers working in the field. Dr. Branislav Vajdic, NewCardio's Chief Executive Officer and Dr. Bosko Bojovic, Co-Founder and Senior Technology Consultant, will present at this conference. Visit http://www.isce.org/generalinfo.html for more information.

Drs. Vajdic and Bojovic will present two abstracts at the conference:

  • "Human Overread of Semi-Automated QT Measurements May Adversely Affect Final Results In Cardiac Safety Studies," authored by Drs. Branislav Vajdic, Ihor Gussak (NewCardio's Chief Medical Officer), Bosko Bojovic, and Samuel George (NewCardio's Senior Consultant). This study presents data showing that human adjustment of computer-generated ECG measurements may lead to unexpected distortions in key parameters that affect drug safety assessment.
  • "End of T Wave Determination by Polynomial Curve Fitting on a Vector Magnitude Lead," authored by Drs. Bosko Bojovic, Ljupco Hadzievski, Ihor Gussak, Samuel George and Branislav Vajdic. This presentation will feature a technical summary of NewCardio's proprietary automated methods for accurate and precise time interval measurements in ECGs from cardiac safety studies. Such measurements are the key indicators of potential drug effects on the heart. NewCardio's approach, covered by two recent patent applications filed in the U.S. and under the international Patent Cooperation Treaty, provides a novel, baseline-independent, iterative computer process that has been extensively validated in recent retrospective drug safety trials.

Branislav Vajdic, PhD, NewCardio's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "NewCardio management is excited to discuss our findings and elaborate on how we can bring new levels of efficiency and accuracy to clinical drug trials with our fully automated QTinno(TM) solution. Unlike other approaches, which are limited due to the reliance on the two-dimensional methodology, NewCardio's proprietary technology matches the most rigorous manual readings from highly trained cardiologists in a fully automated manner. The ISCE Conference is an excellent opportunity to discuss our novel technology with recognized industry leaders in attendance, and explore the various applications we will be aggressively pursuing in the coming months and years."
