ResMed Studies Show Remote Monitoring and Automated Resupply Improve Adherence to PAP Therapy22.5.2018 15:55 | Tiedote

Remote patient monitoring and resupply programs have been shown to improve patient adherence to positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy, according to two separate studies presented by ResMed (NYSE: RMD, ASX: RMD) this week at the ATS 2018 International Conference. Remote monitoring boosts compliance In the first study, medXcloud, a ResMed-assembled group of healthcare key opinion leaders, examined de-identified data of more than 2.6 million U.S. PAP users from ResMed’s world-leading remote monitoring network, AirView. Using this big data approach, researchers observed excellent adherence among patients initiating PAP therapy: 75 percent achieved the CMS compliance threshold.* This rate compares very favorably with that of non-cloud-connected PAP therapy and other chronic medical therapies – both around 50 percent.

Asuragen to Launch the AmplideX® PCR/CE DMPK Kit and Present Growing Genetic Testing Portfolio at 2018 European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) Conference22.5.2018 15:00 | Tiedote

Asuragen, Inc., a molecular diagnostics company delivering high-quality, easy to use products for complex testing in genetics and oncology, today announced the launch of the AmplideX® PCR/CE DMPK Kit* to simplify analysis of repeat expansions within the DMPK gene, which is implicated in myotonic dystrophy type I (DM1), also known as Steinert’s disease.

These expansions commonly extend beyond a thousand CTG repeats and therefore have required the use of cumbersome Southern blot technology to estimate their size. “The AmplideX DMPK Kit represented a significant improvement over our existing process for analyzing large DMPK expansions,” said Doctor Sophie Rondeau, PharmD, PhD, and Professor Jean-Paul Bonnefont, MD, PhD, of the Necker-Enfants Malades Hospital in Par
