“By automating workflows with MasterScope, clinical trial sponsors will benefit from enhanced FeNO quality monitoring, protocol compliance, and patient performance as well as reduced investigative site burden.”
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) May 17, 2016
ERT, a leading provider of high-quality patient data collection solutions for use in clinical drug development, today announced it has successfully integrated the market-leading Fractional exhaled Nitric Oxide (FeNO) measurement device by Aerocrine—a Circassia subsidiary— into ERT’s diagnostic platform for spirometry, ECG and home monitoring for centralized clinical trials.
NIOX VERO® is Circassia’s FeNO solution, and it integrates with ERT’s market-leading platform, MasterScope™. The integrated solution is available immediately for clinical trials.
“We are pleased to offer NIOX VERO integration for our biopharmaceutical customers,” said Achim Schülke, Executive Vice President, Respiratory Solutions at ERT. “By automating workflows with MasterScope, clinical trial sponsors will benefit from enhanced FeNO quality monitoring, protocol compliance, and patient performance as well as reduced investigative site burden.”
Patients with allergic airway inflammation have higher than normal levels of nitric oxide in their exhaled breath. By measuring FeNO in accordance with American Thoracic Society and European Respiratory Society guidelines, clinicians can evaluate and compare allergic airway inflammation in patients with underlying asthma.
“We are pleased to continue our ongoing partnership with ERT and to collaborate on solutions that improve efficiencies and outcomes for asthma patients, clinical study investigators and sponsors,” said Linda Szyper, Circassia’s Chief Commerical Officer.
Supported on MasterScope, NIOX VERO and previous generation NIOX MINO® are cleared by the FDA and approved for use in global trials by many worldwide regulators.
