GlucoTrack® Maker to Present Updated Scientific Data Demonstrating Increased Accuracy
ASHDOD, Israel, Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrity Applications, Inc. (OTCQB: IGAP), maker of GlucoTrack®, a non-invasive device for measuring glucose levels of people with Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetics, announced that it is presenting today at the 16th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting in Bethesda, Maryland.
The Company had recently disclosed that it had engaged with a leading clinic in Germany, Pfutzner Science & Health Institute, GmbH, headed by Prof. Dr. Andreas Pfutzner, to conduct additional clinical trials on subjects with Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetics. These trials have been completed with favorable results and the Company will present these results, as well as recent results from trial conducted at Soroka University Medical Center, Beer-Sheva, Israel in its presentation. Most notably, the presentation will include data supporting that the GlucoTrack's accuracy has been improved significantly. Results from the trials show 99.7% of the study data points were within the clinically accepted A and B zones of the Consensus Error Grid (type 2), 99.3% of the study data points were within the clinically accepted A and B zones of the Clarke Error Grid, 17.0% Mean Absolute Relative Difference, and 12.9% Median Absolute Relative Difference.
In addition, the German trial concluded that the data confirms the performance of the GlucoTrack® among its intended users, including pre-diabetic patients.
GlucoTrack® is a non-invasive device for measuring glucose levels of people with Type 2 diabetes or at risk of developing diabetes that does not require pricking of the fingers to draw blood for daily glucose monitoring. GlucoTrack® features a small sensor that clips to the earlobe and measures the wearer's glucose level by taking measurements using three technologies. The measured signals are analyzed using a proprietary algorithm and displayed on a small handheld device the size of a mobile phone. The derived glucose measurement is also announced verbally, facilitating use by elderly and vision-impaired diabetes patients.
The GlucoTrack® Model DF-F is expected to begin clinical trials for United States FDA approval in early 2017. The product is currently experimental in the United States and is limited to investigational use only.
GlucoTrack® Model DF-F obtained a CE Mark approval in Europe (June 2013) and final CE Mark approval in March 2014 and in December 2015 received approval to market the device also to pre-diabetics.
