Study Investigates the Ability of Continuous Noninvasive Hemoglobin Monitoring with Masimo SpHb® to Reflect Acute Hemodilution During Incremental Fluid Administration

Share

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that in a study recently published in Anesthesia & Analgesia, researchers evaluated the ability of noninvasive and continuous hemoglobin monitoring with Masimo SpHb® to detect the development of acute hemodilution after graded fluid administration, by comparing it to invasively measured laboratory hemoglobin (BHb), on patients undergoing major surgery.1

In the study, Dr. Şerban Bubenek-Turconi and colleagues at the Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy and the Prof. C.C. Iliescu Institute for Cardiovascular Diseases in Bucharest, Romania, and Sheba Medical Center in Tel Aviv, Israel, examined the effects of incremental fluid loading (as part of perioperative goal-directed therapy (GDT)) on oxygen delivery and whether noninvasive SpHb monitoring could reliably track the development of acute hemodilution (which can necessitate blood transfusions that might otherwise be avoided). They analyzed data from 40 adult patients undergoing major gastrointestinal or vascular surgery. SpHb was continuously measured using Masimo Root® with the Radical-7® Pulse CO-Oximeter®. BHb and partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2) were intermittently, invasively measured using a Radiometer ABL800 blood gas analyzer. Cardiac output (CO) and stroke volume (SV) were also obtained through invasive modalities. Oxygen delivery (DO2) was calculated as: CO*((Hb*1.38*SpO2)+PaO2*0.0031)). Parameter values were recorded after the induction of general anesthesia and before the start of surgery (T0) and 5 minutes after successive 250 ml colloid fluid challenges (FC) (T1, T2, and T3). Patients were given the second and third fluid challenges if at each stage SV increased by at least 10%. 40 patients received the first FC, 32 received the second, and 20 received the third, for a total of 92 administered FCs.

The researchers found that, “Compared to their baseline values (T0), BHb and SpHb decreased by a mean of 5.3% ± 4.9% and 4.4% ± 5.2%, respectively, after the first FC (T1; n = 40), by 9.7% ± 8.4% and 7.9% ± 6.9% after the second FC (T2; n = 32), and by 14.5% ± 6.2% and 14.6% ± 5.7% after the third FC (T3; n = 20).” Using Bland-Altman analysis of all 132 paired SpHb and BHb values, the researchers found mean bias and precision values of -0.3 ± 1.5 g/dL and limits of agreement of -2.7 to 3.3 g/dL. They also found that concordance rates between changes in SpHb and in BHb after the administration of the 250, 500, and 750 mL of fluid were 83%, 90%, and 100%, respectively. They noted that results showed “excellent” concordance after 750 mL, despite the limited absolute accuracy, which may have been negatively affected by the “well-recognized inherent variability of the laboratory Hb device that served as our reference method.”

The researchers concluded, “In summary, our study shows that acute iatrogenic hemodilution does invariably occur after fluid administration, that it may lead to paradoxical decrease in DO2 especially in ‘nonresponders’ and that its development is made visible by the continuous monitoring of SpHb when >500 mL of colloids are being administered. Further studies are needed to examine the potential clinical benefit of SpHb monitoring in identifying acute hemodilution.”

SpHb is not intended to replace laboratory blood testing. Clinical decisions regarding red blood cell transfusions should be based on the clinician’s judgment considering among other factors: patient condition, continuous SpHb monitoring, and laboratory diagnostic tests using blood samples.

Celltrion Announces Positive Pre-clinical Results for COVID- 19 Antiviral Antibody Treatment, Showing Improvement in Recovery Time1.6.2020 04:00:00 EESTPress release

Celltrion Group today announced positive pre-clinical results for its COVID-19 antiviral antibody treatment, with data demonstrating a 100-fold reduction in the viral load of SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19. The treatment was also able to show improvement in lung lesions to a normal activity level in animal models. The pre-clinical study was conducted in an animal model in collaboration with one of the Korean National Universities, Chungbuk National University College of Medicine. The trial set out to assess the efficacy of two dosage amounts (low and high) for the antiviral antibody treatment. In comparison to the placebo-controlled group, the research team observed improved recovery in terms of clinical symptom scores such as runny nose, cough and body aches, after the first day of treatment. From the fifth day, significant clinical remission was observed. Reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) measurement and cell culture-based viral diagnosis were used to a

Takeda to Present Data from the ICLUSIG® (ponatinib) Clinical Trial Program that Could Prove Practice-Changing for the Treatment of Chronic-Phase CML29.5.2020 15:00:00 EESTPress release

Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) today announced that interim analysis data from the Phase 2 OPTIC (Optimizing Ponatinib Treatment In CML) trial will be presented during an oral session at the virtual 56th American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting and the 25th European Hematology Association (EHA) Annual Meeting. The OPTIC trial is an ongoing, randomized, open-label study prospectively evaluating response-based dosing regimens of ICLUSIG® (ponatinib) over a range of three starting doses (45-, 30-, or 15-mg) with the aim of optimizing its efficacy and safety in patients with chronic-phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CP-CML) who are resistant or intolerant to prior tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) therapy. With a median follow-up of approximately 21 months, data from the interim analysis of OPTIC show that the optimal benefit-risk profile for ICLUSIG in patients with CP-CML is achieved with a daily starting dose of 45-mg and, upon achieving ≤1% BCR
