Witty Health Inc. announces the initiation of clinical development of a novel Fulvestrant Cancer Treatment Platform for metastatic breast cancer
Houston, TX – August 14, 2017 – Witty Health Inc., a technology company focused on cancer drug toxicity monitoring and treatment pathways, today announced the initiation of the clinical development of software-enabled Fulvestrant product for treating certain types of breast cancer.
Witty Health’s Cancer Treatment Platform (CTP™) is custom built for a particular drug based on its toxicity profile. CTP™ helps monitor drugs’ toxicity and patients’ vitals in real-time to improve patient’s Quality of Life (QoL) and potential outcomes associated with the drug.
Fulvestrant (marketed under brand name Faslodex® by AstraZeneca) is an Estrogen Receptor Modulator. Fulvestrant is approved for the treatment of hormone receptor (HR)-positive metastatic breast cancer in postmenopausal women with disease progression following antiestrogen therapy and for the treatment of HR-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative advanced or metastatic breast cancer in combination with palbociclib in women with disease progression after endocrine therapy. Faslodex® is expected to clock over $1.1 billion in sales by 2020.
“We are excited to initiate the development of first ever software-enabled drug through the formal regulatory approval,” said Co-Founder Ram Sesha. “We believe the treatment with Fulvestrant Cancer Treatment Platform will result in better Quality of Life (QoL) and improved outcomes than with the parent drug-Faslodex. Our product provides better option than Faslodex® which is facing generic competition in early 2019. To seek a Fast Track designation, the development is in continual collaboration with Food and Drug Administration (FDA).”
“The current cancer treatment model without monitoring patient’s condition between office visits is not working. Fulvestrant Cancer Treatment Platform (FCTP™) is designed to improve outcomes associated with Fulvestrant. This is more so when Fulvestrant is used in combination with CDK 4/6 inhibitors Ibrance®, Abemaciclib, and Kisqali®. Further, we believe our product can significantly reduce preventable health care costs by reducing ER visits and hospitalizations due to symptom exacerbations as well,” said Dr. Karthik Koduru, the Chief Oncologist of Witty Health.
Witty Health’s Cancer Treatment Platform (CTP™) can be connected with up to eight devices: a wireless weighing scale, blood pressure cuff, pulse oximeter, stethoscope, thermometer, multi-scope camera, ECG and blood glucose monitor depending on the drug. Cancer Treatment Platform (CTP™) includes drug specific toxicity pathways to help oncologists address a specific toxicity effectively and promptly to improve Quality of Life (QoL) and potentially improve outcomes of the treatment. The Cancer Treatment Platform (CTP™) is custom built for any cancer drug including Checkpoint inhibitors; Opdivo™, Keytruda®, Imfinzi™, TecentriQ® and Bavencio™, CDK 4/6 inhibitors: Ibrance®, Abemaciclib, and Kisqali®, PARP inhibitors; Lynparza™, Zejula™ and Rubraca™ and for any pain medication. Like other combination strategies; I-O/I-O, I-O/chemotherapy, I-O/targeted therapies and I-O/radiation therapies, Cancer Treatment Platform (CTP™) provides an additional combination option to improve QoL and outcomes. A pending patent application protects Fulvestrant Cancer Treatment Platform.
