CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Voluntis (Paris:VTX) (Euronext Paris, Ticker: VTX - ISIN: FR0004183960), a leader in digital therapeutics, announced today the issuance of a new patent by the European Patent Office (EPO) for intelligent patient support in drug dosing applied in the field of diabetes for insulin titration support.
Following the prescription of the drug and its companion digital therapeutic, the intelligent and adaptive algorithms developed by Voluntis will automatically recommend to a patient, day by day and according to the evolution of their monitoring data, a progressive increase of the dose to bring the patient into the target range as specified by their physician. Safety mechanisms are also present to decrease the dose if the situation requires it. Once the target range is reached, the dose will then remain stable as long as the patient's follow-up data stays within the target range.
In the field of diabetes, the patent obtained relates to the optimization of insulin titration, based on the evolution of fasting blood glucose levels over several days to recommend to the patient an appropriate dose of basal insulin to be injected, in accordance with their treatment plan. More specifically, this new patent covers the management of the sensitivity of the titration algorithms to changes in the patient's blood glucose levels to optimize the achievement and maintenance of the dose enabling glycemic control.
"Thanks to this patented technology, we are extending the scope of cutting-edge solutions available to our clinical and industrial partners wishing to offer unique treatment experiences to patients worldwide" said Pierre Leurent, Chief Executive Officer. "Successfully dosing drug treatments, particularly in the context of complex therapies, is often a challenge for patients and their healthcare teams, Digital therapeutics now provide innovative solutions thanks to embedded algorithms that provide patients with daily and personalized recommendations, in compliance with the physician's prescription and with performance and safety standards. ".
"We are proud to obtain this new patent, which builds on Voluntis' 15 years of experience in the field of dosage support with digital therapeutics" added Etienne Vial, Chief Technology Officer. "Our Theraxium platform is already being used for drug dosing support in therapeutic areas other than diabetes, particularly in oncology for the dosing of symptomatic treatments. These developments in our platform offer promise to further extend our approach to other therapeutic areas. »
