PHILADELPHIA CREAM, June 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Clariona technology company that provides leading endpoint solutions for decentralized, hybrid and onsite clinical trials (DCTs), today announced its partnership with ActiGraph, a pioneer and leading provider of wearable activity detection technologies, to expand its already extensive evidence generation platform and decentralization technology portfolio. The partnership will help clinical trial sites and sponsors improve efficiency and accuracy while increasing convenience for study participants. Clario will offer ActiGraph technologies to its customers in addition to its suite of eCOA, Precision Motion, Cardiac Safety, Respiratory, Medical Imaging and Trial Enablement solutions.

Quality of life is increasingly considered a critical patient-reported outcome (PRO) by regulatory bodies as they seek evidence of how clinical interventions change the way patients feel overall . Therefore, activity-related parameters are needed in clinical studies in many therapeutic areas (including oncology, neuroscience, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and sleep disorders) where patients could manage their conditions for an extended period. Historically, this requirement has placed a burden on study participants who are asked to submit subjective patient reports. In contrast, ActiGraph’s FDA-cleared, medical-grade platform captures objective, real-world biometric data related to physical activity, mobility, sedentary behavior, and sleep. With the proper data science and validation support from ActiGraph and Clario, these data can truly empower clinical trial sponsors to increase the accuracy, quality, and completeness of clinical data by increasing reporting. patient subjective and point-in-time clinical outcome data with continuous numerical measures. .

“We are at an inflection point. Regulatory agencies and patients expect clinical interventions to prolong quality, not just lifespan,” said Ellen Street, EVP Cardiac Safety and Precision Motion at Clario. “Our partnership with ActiGraph allows us to provide our customers with a broader range of measurable and meaningful patient-meaningful quality of life metrics and is the next step in how we aim to transform lives through technologies that generate the richest clinical evidence. »

Ellen went on to say, “Quality of life parameters such as movement and sleep are best measured over long periods of time and across a range of settings. Decentralized clinical trials can make the most of these metrics and help bring life-enhancing therapies to market. We’re proud to offer our customers another key technology that not only enables DCTs, but also makes patient engagement and site responsibilities less burdensome and activity-related data more accurate.

Leveraging over 20 years of real-world data capture expertise, ActiGraph’s ecosystem of wearable biosensors, software tools, and scientific services delivers near real-time digital data through a flexible, cloud-based technology platform designed around the challenges and complexities of the clinical development process. ActiGraph’s technologies, combined with Clario’s depth of scientific expertise, global scale and existing capacity to collect data on a wide range of parameters, will help ensure complex global trials run smoothly, whether on-premises, decentralized or hybrid.

“The combination of high-fidelity handhelds deployed on our CentrePoint platform with a state-of-the-art eCOA tool represents an opportunity to improve the patient experience in modern clinical trials,” said Jeremy Wyatt, CEO of ActiGraph. “The most accurate picture of a patient’s experience comes from a combination of self-reported and high-integrity objective measures. Our teams are excited to begin leveraging Clario’s expertise and providing pharmaceutical companies and biotechnology our technological and scientific resources, as we both work to advance the development of drugs and therapies.”
