Antidote Technologies Unveils Smart COVID-19 Clinical Trial Search to Speed Up Treatment and Vaccine Research Worldwide

Share

Antidote Technologies, a digital patient engagement company with strategic partnerships across the clinical development ecosystem, today announced the addition of COVID-19 trials to its signature state-of-the-art clinical trial search platform, Antidote Match™. For the first time, people can use Antidote’s search to be quickly matched to clinical trials for compounds aimed at COVID-19 treatment and prevention.

Antidote Match is the first trial matching engine that uses structured eligibility criteria (using industry standard and custom-designed ontologies) and proprietary algorithms to explore a patient’s eligibility for every trial. When searching COVID-19 trials, patients answer a handful of questions about their health, and the Antidote Match engine traverses all COVID-19 trials in ClinicalTrials.gov, regardless of location, to connect them with the right studies.

Antidote’s search is available on the Antidote website and on the websites of 250+ patient advocacy groups, where Antidote powers clinical trial search. “Antidote is a tremendous resource for families looking for clear, reliable information on clinical trials, as well as scientists hoping to accelerate the path to new and more effective treatments,” said Michael Buckley, Vice President of Public Affairs at BrightFocus Foundation.

Traditionally, medical research has been a slow process — it takes an average of ten years for a drug to go from initial discovery to pharmacy shelves.1 “Right now, the world doesn’t have ten years,” said Laurent Schockmel, CEO of Antidote. “COVID-19 research is urgent, and all avenues that speed up research should be explored. That’s why Antidote is providing this free search tool to all. It’s simple: the more patients search and enroll, the faster medical research can lead to breakthroughs to treat and prevent COVID-19.”

Clinical trials for COVID-19 cannot move forward without volunteers — both those who are sick and those who are healthy. To be part of finding a solution to COVID-19, please visit http://www.antidote.me/covid-19.

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced today that the European Commission (EC) has granted marketing authorisation for DARZALEX®▼ (daratumumab) subcutaneous (SC) formulation for the treatment of adult patients with multiple myeloma (MM).

Moody’s Analytics Forecast: Resurgence of COVID-19 Could Cause Global Economic Depression4.6.2020 15:00:00 EESTPress release

According to the Moody’s Analytics baseline economic forecast, real global GDP will fall by 4.5% this year as a result of COVID-19. Our base case for the US suggests that it will take until mid-decade for the economy to return to full-employment. Mark Zandi, Chief Economist at Moody’s Analytics, describes the outlook in a new paper, Handicapping the Paths for the Pandemic Economy . “COVID-19 has caused massive damage to the global economy. Quickly reopening economies will boost growth by unleashing pent-up demand, but will also raise the specter of a re-intensification of COVID-19 and another economic downdraft, which could lead to a worldwide depression. We construct our economic forecasts to help market participants navigate this daunting uncertainty and make better decisions,” said Mr. Zandi. The Moody’s Analytics baseline economic forecast represents our view of the most likely trajectory for the global economy. The baseline forecast is part of a set of 12 forecast scenarios, updat
