Biogen expands digital safety platform Assessa

The MS technolgy pilot, a collaboration with Ixico, will now include pharmacoviglance reporting

BrainBiogen has expanded work on its digital safety platform, which helps monitor MS patients for signs of the rare and potentially fatel brain infection progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML).

The pilot programme, a collaboration with tech firm Ixico, will now include pharmacoviglance reporting to monitor patients for previously unreported adverse reactions.

The partners - who have been in a collaborative agreement since October 2015 - developed the Assessa system to provide neurologists with second opinion reading services if there is a suspicion of PML.

Giulio Cerroni, chief executive officer of Ixico, said: “We are delighted to announce the expansion of this pilot involving clinical experts in specialist MS centres and Biogen.

“The Assessa PML digital platform is intended to provide technology and speciality services to physcians involved in delivering care to people living with MS.”

Biogen has invested £1.5m in the project, which is currently being piloted in five EU countries.
