ALR Technologies Announces Successful Preliminary Results for the GluCurve Pet CGM Non-Inferiority Study
(February 28, 2022 -- Singapore) ALR Technologies (“ALRT” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: ALRT), the diabetes management company, today announced preliminary results from the Non-Inferiority Study currently being conducted on the GluCurve Pet CGM (GluCurve).
Utilizing a chemistry analyzer for the baseline, the GluCurve has thus far performed on par with the leading veterinary Blood Glucose Meter (BGM) and has met all the accuracy requirements set for human blood glucose meters in ISO: 15197:2013.
“We are pleased with GluCurve’s accuracy as compared to the leading pet BGM used by veterinarians. The platform has provided valuable diagnostic information throughout the study that would not be available from traditional in-clinic glucose curve. A significant benefit of GluCurve is that it is applied in minutes in-clinic and the pet is sent home. GluCurve records blood sugar levels every 3 minutes for up to 14 days while the pet and owner go about their daily lives. This presents many benefits compared to BGM whereby 5 to 7 data points are collected over 8-12 hours in a clinical setting. The process of housing a pet in-clinic and drawing blood every 2 hours causes stress which elevates their blood glucose levels and is challenging for the clinic staff to undertake. As part of the study, GluCurve was able to document the impact on glucose levels from the stressful clinical experience required for BGM testing in real time,” said Joe Stern, Head of Animal Health at ALR Technologies.
Mr. Stern continues, “The data collected by GluCurve is processed and organized to facilitate clinicians in providing optimal care with ease. By comparing daily curves, the platform is able to show clinicians if the pet is receiving insulin injections at the appropriate times, the pet’s eating habits, and a complete view of the pet’s blood sugar levels over time. Additionally, we have received feedback from the lead veterinarian in the study confirming what other veterinarians and animal health companies have told us; they believe the GluCurve Pet CGM will become the standard of care for the management of diabetic pets. We are looking forward to reviewing the final results with our prospective pharmaceutical partner next month.”
About ALR Technologies
ALR Technologies is a data management company that developed the ALRT Diabetes Solution, a comprehensive approach to diabetes care that includes: an FDA-cleared and HIPAA compliant diabetes management system that collects data directly from blood glucose meters and continuous glucose monitoring devices; a patent pending Predictive A1C algorithm to track treatment success between lab reports and an FDA-cleared Insulin Dosing Adjustment program. ALRT also offers an algorithm to provide prescribers support for timely non-insulin medication advancements. The overall goal is to optimize diabetes drug therapies to drive improved patient outcomes. The program tracks performance of all clinical activities to ensure best practices are followed. The ALRT Diabetes Solution gives healthcare providers a platform for remote diabetes care, helping to minimize patient exposure to potential infections in clinical settings. Currently, the Company is focused on diabetes and will expand its services to cover other chronic diseases anchored on verifiable data.
In addition, the animal health division has identified an unmet need in diabetes care and has developed GluCurve; a solution to assist Veterinarian Doctors to determine the efficacy of insulin and to help to identify the appropriate dose and frequency of administration of insulin for companion animals. Thus, delivering the same optimization of diabetic drug therapies to pets as to humans.
