New SunTech Medical CT40 Vital Signs Device to Feature Masimo SET® Pulse Oximetry Technology

Del

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) and SunTech Medical, a Halma (LSE:HLMA) company, jointly announced today the integration of Masimo SET® pulse oximetry technology into SunTech’s CT40, a next generation spot-check vital signs device.

This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160623005340/en/

Masimo Signal Extraction Technology (SET®) Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry measures oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate, and perfusion index. Masimo SET® has been shown to significantly reduce false alarms and accurately monitor for true alarms1,2 and is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world.

The SunTech CT40 is an ideal, affordable solution for clinical-grade spot-check measurements of blood pressure, temperature and pulse oximetry in hospitals and clinics. Ambulatory care, long-term care and low-acuity hospital departments can easily implement this versatile, user-friendly vital signs device that offers both advanced features and digital connectivity. The modular design allows clinicians to easily make adaptations to the device while in the field, adding thermometry, SpO2 and Wi-Fi as needed. Other advanced features include the ability to transmit measurement data directly from the device, in accordance with HL7 messaging protocols, as well as BP Averaging Mode—an increasingly important component of accurate blood pressure measurement, as evidenced by the recently published SPRINT Study from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which specified that a mean of three office BP measurements would be used to establish target BPs for Standard Group participants.3

“Both SunTech and Masimo share industry-leading technologies within our respective areas of expertise,” said Kenny Andersen, VP of Strategic Product Development at SunTech Medical. “Partnering with them on our next-generation vital signs platform is a very natural strategy. Masimo SET pulse oximetry is the benchmark for clinical performance, just as SunTech Advantage technology is for blood pressure. We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”

Rick Fishel, Masimo’s President of Worldwide OEM Business and Strategic Development, stated, “SunTech Medical is a recognized global leader and worldwide supplier of non-invasive blood pressure measurement technology. Combining best-in-class measurement technologies that provide superior performance, accuracy, and affordability, in flexible and cost effective monitors, supports our organizations’ mutual vision to offer solutions that help clinicians improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of healthcare delivery. We are very pleased to partner with SunTech Medical and that Masimo SET pulse oximetry is the preferred pulse oximetry offering in the highly versatile and cost-effective SunTech CT40 monitor.”

The SunTech CT 40 with Masimo SET® technology has a CE Mark. It is not FDA cleared and is not available for sale in the United States.

Pierre Fabre & Array BioPharma Announce a 62% Observed OS at One Year from the Phase 3 BEACON CRC Safety Lead-In of the Combination of Encorafenib, Binimetinib and Cetuximab in BRAF-Mutant CRC at the ESMO GI Congress23.6.2018 11:00Pressemelding

Not intended for UK- and US-based media Pierre Fabre and its partner Array BioPharma Inc. today announced updated safety and efficacy results, including OS, from the safety lead-in of the Phase 3 BEACON CRC trial evaluating the triplet combination of encorafenib, a BRAF inhibitor, binimetinib, a MEK inhibitor and cetuximab, an anti-EGFR antibody, in patients with BRAF V600E -mutant metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC). The results showed that, at the time of analysis, the OS data were fully mature through 12.6 months and that the median OS had not yet been reached. The one-year overall survival rate for this cohort was 62%. These data were presented in an oral presentation on Saturday, June 23, at the ESMO 20th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer in Barcelona, Spain. The median progression-free survival (mPFS) for patients treated with the triplet was 8 months [95% CI 5.6-9.3] and is similar between patients receiving one prior line of therapy and patients receiving two prior lines

Compelling Data for LONSURF® (trifluridine/tipiracil) in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer Presented at ESMO’s World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer by Servier and Taiho23.6.2018 08:10Pressemelding

Servier and Taiho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. today announced that the TASCO-1 trial demonstrated promising results for LONSURF® (trifluridine/tipiracil) in combination with bevacizumab in patients with previously untreated metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) who are not suitable for intensive treatment, with a median progression-free survival (PFS) of 9.2 months (ranging from 7.6 to 11.5 months). A second non-comparative arm in the trial, evaluated the outcome of patients treated with the current standard of care of capecitabine in combination with bevacizumab. The median PFS of this arm was 7.8 months (ranging from 5.5 to 10.1 months). “Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the world. While there has been some progress in treatment, there are still few options for patients with metastatic disease who are not suitable for intensive treatment,” said Professor Eric Van Cutsem, Head of Digestive Oncology at the University of Leuven, Belgium. “These compelling results suggest
