NewCardio to Present Results of QTinno Performance on Cardiac Safety Research Consortium Blinded 'Testing' Dataset
Date:11/9/2010

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NewCardio, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NWCI), a cardiovascular diagnostic solutions developer, announced today that Dr. Samuel George, NewCardio's Senior Medical Advisor, will present the results of QTinno performance on a blinded "testing" dataset, conducted independently by the Cardiac Safety Research Consortium (CSRC), at the CSRC's Annual Meeting, to be held on December 9, 2010, at the headquarters of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in Silver Spring, MD.  

At the meeting, Dr. George will present results of a blinded validation study in which CSRC-affiliated investigators independently evaluated the accuracy and precision of fully automated QTinno measurements in 11,672 electrocardiograms (ECGs) from the moxifloxacin and placebo arms of a recent Thorough QT Study (TQTS). In the study, the CSRC investigators made detailed comparisons of QTinno measurements to those originally submitted by the drug sponsor, with the primary comparators of accurate detection of the moxifloxacin effect on QT intervals.

The CSRC makes this blinded TQTS "testing" dataset available to automated cardiac safety technology solution providers, with the conditions that the blinded analysis is conducted independently by the CSRC without any company involvement, and that any (either favorable or unfavorable) results obtained will be made public. NewCardio is the first company which has agreed to these conditions and completed the evaluation.

Dr. Ihor Gussak, NewCardio's Chief Medical Officer, commented, "We are very proud to be the first  automated cardiac safety solution to accept the rules of engagement defined by the CSRC for evaluating the performance of our automated solution, QTinno, utilizing the blinded CSRC 'testing' dataset. Our willingness to enter into this very important and strictly regulated validation study reflects our high level of confidence in the accuracy and precision of the fully automated ECG measurements provided by QTinno. Prior to this blinded CSRC validation study, we have validated QTinno extensively, in collaboration with partners from Pharma, Clinical Research Organizations, and Academia. In every one of these 9 validation studies performed to date, which included over 100,000 ECGs, QTinno has provided highly accurate, fully automated measurements with an average 19% reduction in QT/QTc measurement variability. Based on this consistent performance in prior studies, we are confident that QTinno will perform well in any head to head comparison with the current ECG analysis methodologies."
