UNC Selects MedAssurant to Support Investigation of Relationship Between Insulin and Cancer Development
Date:2/3/2011

BOWIE, Md., Feb. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MedAssurant, Inc., a leading provider of data-driven healthcare solutions, today announced the initiation of a joint study with the University of North Carolina (UNC) to assess the relationship between the use of long-acting insulin to treat diabetes and the development of cancer.  Following a protocol to be developed by UNC, MedAssurant has been engaged to analyze data from its MORE2 Registry™ comparing cancer prevalence and outcomes in patients treated with two different types of prescription insulin.

Recent publications have suggested a relationship may exist between a specific type of prescription long-acting insulin and increased rates of cancer development.  Due to the inconsistent findings within these previous publications, this study is designed to further clarify the possible correlation using several very large and statistically powerful clinical and administrative healthcare databases, including MedAssurant's MORE2 Registry.  As one of the most significant healthcare datasets available for such analysis, the MORE2 Registry contains more than 3.9 billion medical events from more than 76 million patients, 295,000 physicians, and 185,000 clinical facilities – enabling significant power and insight into the investigation of advancements in healthcare.

MedAssurant will be responsible for coordinating the identification of specific cohorts within the MORE2 Registry, the evaluation of clinical covariates that may affect incidences of cancer, and the application of advanced clinical analytics to assess the relationship between prescription insulin and cancer development.

"Depth of data is critical to this study and is believed to have been a significant limitation in past studies," stated John Buse, M.D., Ph.D., Chief of Endocrinology and Professor of Medicine, UNC. "We are delighted to have access to the analytical capabilities and data insight able to be brought to bear
