September 19, 2016

ERT eCOA diaries and solution delivery enable CoLucid Pharmaceuticals to collect quality data, on time, while minimizing study complexity and risk

  PHILADELPHIA, PA –

ERT

, a leading provider of high-quality patient data collection solutions for use in clinical drug development, today announced that its electronic Clinical Outcome Assessment (eCOA) diaries and expert solution delivery enabled CoLucid Pharmaceuticals to achieve the primary and key secondary efficacy endpoints in its

Phase 3 SAMURAI study of lasmiditan

in adults with migraine.   During the pivotal trial, patients used ERT’s electronic diary (eDiary) to record migraine occurrence and to rate headache pain severity as well as presence of the most bothersome symptom, including nausea, phonophobia or photophobia. Patients then used ERT’s eDiary at protocol-defined times post-dose to assess the degree of headache pain and the presence or absence of each associated symptom.   “ERT was able to design eDiaries that were easy enough for this affected patient population to complete while they were suffering from migraine symptoms,” said Bernice Kuca, Head Clinical and Regulatory Operations, CoLucid. “We are pleased with their implementation of the eDiary solution, which enabled us to maintain study timelines, as well as the critical endpoint data they delivered in support of our program.”   Ron Sullivan, Executive Vice President and Product Line Executive for eCOA noted “We’re honored that CoLucid relied on our eCOA system and expertise to capture this important efficacy data.”   For more information on ERT’s eCOA system, visit
