DalCor Announces Completion of Patient Enrollment in dal-GenE, the First Phase 3 Precision Medicine Cardiovascular Outcomes Trial in Coronary Heart Disease

Del

LONDON and MONTREAL, Dec. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DalCor today announced the completion of patient enrollment in the dal-GenE study, the first Phase 3 precision medicine cardiovascular  outcomes trial in coronary heart disease. The dal-GenE study is evaluating the efficacy of the CETP inhibitor dalcetrapib to reduce clinical cardiovascular events in patients with the AA ADCY9 genotype who have had a recent acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The study has enrolled over 6,000 patients and is being conducted in 680 sites in 32 countries.

“The accelerated enrollment of patients in the dal-GenE study reflects the scientific enthusiasm and commitment among the medical community to bring the right medicine to the right patient,” said Dr. Jean-Claude Tardif from the Montreal Heart Institute.  “ADCY9 genetic testing to identify the appropriate patients for treatment with dalcetrapib has the potential to provide a genetically targeted therapy to improve clinical outcomes. This approach could pave a new path for the development of precision medicine for cardiovascular disease. Approximately twenty percent of patients carry the specific genotype that has the potential to benefit from treatment with dalcetrapib after an ACS.”

Dr. Donald M. Black, chief medical officer of DalCor added, “The completion of the enrollment of the dal-GenE trial marks an important milestone for DalCor. We are progressing the dal-GenE study with the aim to improve cardiovascular outcomes beyond the current standard of care and look forward to sharing the results of this event-driven trial, expected in 2021.”

About the dal-GenE Phase 3 Study
The double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multicenter Phase 3 clinical trial is evaluating the efficacy of dalcetrapib in 6,000 patients recently hospitalized with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and who express the AA genotype at variant rs1967309 in the ADCY9 gene, determined by an investigational companion diagnostic test developed by Roche Molecular Systems (RMS). The primary endpoint of the study is the time to first occurrence of any component of the composite of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction (heart attack) and stroke. Dalcetrapib is tested on top of typical therapy for patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS), including lipid management with statins and other LDL-lowering drugs. The trial is being conducted in over 680 sites in 32 countries.

About DalCor
DalCor is developing precision medicine by genetically targeting patients who will derive clinical benefits. By integrating clinical and genetic insights, DalCor intends to deliver superior clinical cardiovascular outcomes. The company’s first development program, dalcetrapib, is intended to reduce cardiovascular events in a specific genetic subset of patients. DalCor has a worldwide exclusive license for dalcetrapib together with rights to the genetic marker for use with dalcetrapib and is sponsoring the dal-GenE study.

Pittsburgh, PA, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calgon Carbon Corporation today announced a global price increase, effective February 1, 2019, where contracts permit, on all activated carbon products and related equipment due to a continued escalation in raw material costs and transportation expenses. The increase is expected to range between 10-15%, depending on the specific product, raw material type, services provided, and global market dynamics. The primary raw materials used for producing activated carbon are coal, coconut shell, and wood, each of which has gone up in price. Additionally, costs associated with both operating manufacturing facilities and transporting materials have also escalated. “Calgon Carbon’s raw material costs have increased significantly. Despite every effort to offset these increases through continuous improvements, the recent rise in raw material costs has exceeded our efforts,” said Jim Coccagno, Chief Commercial Officer for Calgon Carbon Corporation. “

Taconic Biosciences’ Animals Complete Most Recent Mission to the International Space Station17.1.2019 15:29Pressemelding

RENSSELAER, N.Y., Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Taconic Biosciences, a global leader in providing genetically engineered rodent model solutions, announces the completion of a recent mission to the International Space Station. This project represents a collaboration between the International Space Station (ISS) National Lab, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Bioserve Space Technologies with support from the Leidos Corporation, and Taconic. Taconic has participated in several spaceflight missions with NASA since 1985. Most recently, as part of the science and research investigation payloads supported by the SpaceX Commercial Resupply Services missions, Taconic prepared mice to live aboard the International Space Station for extended periods. Previous spaceflight studies demonstrated that mice undergo rapid loss of muscle and bone mass, resembling accelerated aging. Therefore, mice exposed to microgravity via spaceflight are a valuable model to understand and devel

MPP Global Bridges the Innovation Gap by Centralising Physical and Digital Subscriber Management and Billing in a Single Cloud Platform17.1.2019 12:29Pressemelding

WARRINGTON, UK, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MPP Global, the technology company that delivers eSuite, the world’s smartest subscriber management & billing platform, announces the launch of pivotal new functionality which enables media organisations to seamlessly create and manage the sale of physical subscriptions. This positions eSuite as the complete physical and digital subscription management solution. The development of this industry-first functionality was borne out of the common challenge for publishers when managing multiple systems for deploying bundled print and digital subscriptions. This is inflexible for publishers and limits choice for their customers, restricting the ability to seamlessly create and offer digital and print subscription bundles. Despite increased consumer uptake of digital subscriptions, print still accounts for almost 90% of circulation revenues globally. To drive reader revenues successfully, publishers require functionality to execute complementar
