Web-based system puts sponsors running brain function clinical trials in the know

CogState Ltd. (Melbourne, Australia) has released the first real-time cognitive data monitoring system, called DataPoint, which allows pharmaceutical companies to access, monitor, and review data from global, multicenter trials at a central and secure Web-based location. The tool is targeted toward trials where cognitive function is the primary endpoint and represents a significant technological departure from paper and pencil cognitive brain function measurements.

One of the main benefits, says CogState, is that DataPoint enables clinical researchers to respond much more quickly to data coming out of clinical trials. For example, DataPoint delivers cleaned datasets and cognitive reports to pharmaceutical clients within hours of study completion, compared to the usual weeks. DataPoint also functions as the main point of contact between sponsors and CogState, and all study-specific software and manuals required to upload data and run a trial are accessible from one central source.
