ICTI software used in major Government Study

September 21, 2005

This week, the New England Journal of Medicine published the results from a National Institute of Mental Health-funded study titled Clinical Antipsychotic Trial of Intervention Effectiveness – Schizophrenia (CATIE-SZ). ICTI is proud to reveal that the data for this study, conducted with 1493 subjects from 57 clinical sites in 24 states, was collected using an early version of ICTI’s iTrial EDC software.

The CATIE -SZ study looked at the effectiveness of five marketed antipsychotic drugs, allowing subjects to switch treatments during the study. iTrial EDC was used in combination with IVR (Interactive Voice Response) to gather real-time subject and treatment data for this study. The integration of data gathered over the phone with IVR as well as through the Internet with iTrial EDC allowed trial managers to access real time data and to review all study data in one place.

iTrial EDC’s ability to work in any environment, whether or not an Internet connection is available, and its ease of integration with IVR resulted in its being chosen over another leading EDC technology for the CATIE-SZ study. While iTrial EDC has continued to add enhancements since its launch seven years ago, it remains notable for its ability to work anywhere, to handle complexity in clinical trial design, and to easily integrate with other systems. Integration with ICTI’s iVR system is now a standard offering to iTrial EDC’s clients.
