NEW HAVEN, Conn.

Cogstate Ltd (ASX:CGS), leaders in the measurement of cognition in clinical trials, is pleased to announce that their iPad-based computerized cognitive assessment technology has been selected for use in a multicenter Phase IV observational study to assess the tolerability of two approved drugs for the treatment of Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC).

Supporting the growing interest in assessing neurotoxicity in oncology clinical trials, Cogstate’s computerized cognitive testing software provides rapid, sensitive measurements of distinct cognitive function, using novel stimuli designed for repeated administration by non-expert clinical staff. Tablet technologies have been thought to offer many benefits in clinical trials for their ease of use, portability and processing and display performance. Extensive usability and validation testing completed to date by Cogstate and independent researchers have confirmed that the Cogstate assessments provide equivalent results for completion and integrity when delivered on PC and tablet.

The Cogstate technology has been successfully deployed on iPads in a number of National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded studies, including the landmark public-private partnership studies, Anti-Amyloid Treatment in Asymptomatic Alzheimer’s study (A4) and Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network Trials Unit (DIAN-TU).

“While Cogstate’s computerized cognitive assessments have been used in over 1,200 trials across academic and clinical research, this study is significant because it marks the first time the technology has been delivered on the iPad for an industry sponsored Phase IV observational study in oncology,” said Brad O’Connor, Cogstate Chief Executive. “The rapid and scalable nature of well validated computerized assessments and the operational benefits of tablet-based delivery make it an ideal fit for large late-phase trials seeking to longitudinally monitor a drug’s impact on cognition.”
