Inflamax Research Inc., announced today that is has entered into a strategic alliance with Japan’s leading CRO, the InCROM Group, to bring Inflamax Research’s next generation Mobile Environmental Exposure Chamber (mEEC™) system to Japan. This strategic alliance will allow Japanese and non-Japanese clients access to world leading technology and expertise in developing new therapies for the treatment of allergic disease toward the Japanese market. Inflamax’s mEEC™ system will be the only mobile EEC system available in Japan for the conduct of multi-center EEC studies. Additionally, Inflamax’s mEEC™ system is validated for allergens not currently available in Japan such as house dust mite and cat, in addition to Japanese Cedar & Cypress, Birch and Oak Trees, Grass and Ragweed.

“We are very fortunate and excited to be working with such a world renowned CRO in Japan. This partnership will benefit both the companies tremendously. Inflamax’s world leading expertise in the conduct of EEC studies will be available for studies conducted in Japan with InCROM’s local expertise in recruitment and study conduct.” says Dr. Anne Marie Salapatek, President and CSO of Inflamax Research. “Inflamax has the largest EEC installation globally with experienced staff, who have conducted more EEC studies than any other CRO in the world. This unique experience, combined with scientific expertise and the world’s largest database of previous studies, provides our clients with un-paralleled confidence in the design and conduct of the most efficient EEC study -- both single center and now with Inflamax’s mEEC™s, the capability to conduct multi-center and multi-national EEC studies worldwide.”

The mEEC™ is a state of the art facility designed to expose patients to controlled levels of airborne allergen, similar to those experienced in their daily lives, while reducing the variability of results, and increasing patient compliance compared to typical field trials. The mEECTM was created to meet the regulatory need for geographic diversity across large multi-centre clinical trials that are suitable and required for late phase clinical research.

“We are very pleased to have a collaboration with Inflamax Research who has tremendous amount of experience and strong track record with successful Environmental Exposure Chamber studies, which we can now provide to our clients all in one high quality service package. The Environmental Exposure Chamber approach provides significant benefit to allergy trials, providing high quality clinical efficacy data outcomes and the ability to perform the trial at any time in the year, even off-season. We are proud to say that we can now offer our customers the mEEC™ study option in Japan.” says Mr. Matsushima, General Manager of Marketing Division InCROM.
