Date:4/23/2009

PITTSBURGH, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- invivodata inc., the industry leader in electronic Patient-Reported Outcomes (ePRO) solutions and services for global clinical research, today announced that it has completed a certification program to provide the EXAcerbations of Chronic pulmonary disease Tool (EXACT) on its DiaryPRO(C) field-based ePRO system.

The EXACT is a Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) measure for evaluating the frequency, severity, and duration of acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and chronic bronchitis (AECB) in international clinical trials. Developed by United BioSource Corporation's (UBC) Center for Health Outcomes Research, with significant input from clinical and instrument development experts and involvement of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the EXACT is the industry's only standardized tool for measuring exacerbations of COPD.

"Being a certified provider of this unique tool enables us to offer our global customers a reliable and efficient means of implementing the EXACT in their clinical trials as they develop more effective COPD treatments," said Tom Henson, invivodata vice president of marketing.

COPD, which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, is a disease characterized by obstruction to airflow that interferes with normal breathing. COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in the world, and further increases in the prevalence and mortality of the disease are predicted in the coming decades (Source: www.who.int). In the United States 11.4 million Americans are diagnosed with the disease with over 122,000 deaths each year. Clinical researchers have put significant effort into developing new COPD treatments, as evidenced by the 33% increase in clinical trials for new COPD medications since 2006 (Source: www.clinicaltria
