Ixlayer Partners with Curavit to Enable Convenient Patient Medical Testing Services for Decentralized Clinical Trials

Wednesday, September 07, 2022

Curavit Clinical Research, a virtual contract research organization (VCRO), has entered into a long-term partnership with ixlayer to provide easy access to clinical-grade diagnostic lab testing for decentralized clinical trials (DCTs). ixlayer seamlessly integrates with Curavit’s platform and makes health testing fast and convenient for patients, improving trial enrollment completion rates. Curavit and ixlayer’s first collaboration is for Swing Therapeutics’ trial of an investigational digital therapeutic (DTx) for fibromyalgia.

ixlayer’s patient-centric lab testing program offers multiple testing formats, including flexible digital options, and thousands of testing combinations. The company offers multi-modality sample selection options, such as at-home self-collect, at-home collection assisted (i.e., mobile phlebotomy), and sample collection at a local patient service center. By making health testing easy for patients, Curavit and ixlayer help sponsor organizations improve completion rates and likelihood of patient retention the duration of the trial so organizations get the data they need to facilitate breakthrough discoveries and bring life-changing healthcare innovation to market quickly.

“Curavit is driving innovation in hybrid and decentralized clinical trials, and we are proud to be part of their mission,” said Pouria Sanae, CEO and co-founder of ixlayer. “Lab testing is an integral part of most clinical trials but can burden patients in traditional settings. At ixlayer, we reduce friction for patients and sponsors by digitally simplifying the process and streamlining data collection on the back end.”

Curavit will remotely recruit, screen, consent, and enroll at least 80 participants in Swing’s PROSPER-FM trial and leverage ixlayer’s platform to streamline clinical urine tests to determine participant eligibility. During televisit screening, Curavit’s clinical coordinators seamlessly schedule the patient’s test at one of more than 2,000 conveniently located lab sites in the U.S. through Curavit’s virtual site platform. ixlayer manages all administrative needs, including payment and curating lab results, unburdening patients, resulting in a more positive early-trial experience.

“ixlayer is the leader in flexible lab and home-based testing services,” said Joel Morse, co-founder and CEO of Curavit. “By partnering with ixlayer, we are setting the foundation for a frictionless patient experience in our decentralized clinical trials and greater trial accessibility. As important, together we are improving the efficiency of trials to get important new therapies to more patients faster.”
