In the past few years, Apple has greatly increased its presence in healthcare. The Cupertino, CA-based company has received FDA nods for apps associated with its technology and has found itself in several clinical trials. Most recently, the tech giant is seeing some movement in its partnership with Johnson &Johnson’s Janssen Pharmaceutical unit. The companies just opened enrollment for the Heartline Study, which is designed to explore if the Heartline Study app on iPhone and heart health features on Apple Watch can improve health outcomes, including reducing the risk of stroke, with earlier detection ...

CONCLUSIONS: The study evaluated the safety of withdrawing the P2Y 12 inhibitor from triple antithrombotic prescription 1 month after coronary stenting. However, enrollment was prematurely terminated because it was slow. Therefore, statistical power was not sufficient to assess the differences in the primary endpoint.

New Brunswick, NJ, February 25, 2020 — Johnson &Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) today announced that the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson, in collaboration with Apple, opened enrollment for the Heartline™ Study. The study is designed to explore if the Heartline™ Study app on iPhone and heart health features on Apple Watch can improve health outcomes, including reducing the risk of stroke, with earlier detection of atrial fibrillation (AFib). AFib, a common form of irregular heart rhythm, is a leading cause of stroke in the U.S. To enroll in the Heartline™ Study, individuals must be a...

What’s worth some 1,204.8 billion USD? Well, it’s the worldwide pharmaceutical market, of course! With such a capital at stake and with the pace of technological disruption, the pharma industry is quick to adapt to the changing times. In fact, leading drug companies are re-investing as much as 20.8% of drug sales into new drug development.  We’ve analyzed the trends shaping the future of pharma before, but how can we expect to see the landscape evolve in this new decade? With leaps in A.I., patient empowerment and 3D printed drugs, here are the 5 aspects that will be the focus of pharmaceutical co...

by Jieyun Bai, Andy Lo, Patrick A. Gladding, Martin K. Stiles, Vadim V. Fedorov, Jichao Zhao Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia and is a major cause of stroke and morbidity. Recent genome-wide association studies have shown that paired-like homeodomain transcription factor 2 (Pitx2) to be strongly associated with AF. However, the mechanisms underlying Pitx2 modulated arrhythmogenesis and variable effectiveness of antiarrhythmic drugs (AADs) in patients in the presence or absence of impaired Pitx2 expression remain unclear. We have developed multi-scale computer models, ranging from a ...
