Newswise — SAN DIEGO, October 28, 2019 — Seqster, the award-winning SaaS-based technology platform enabling consumer-centered health data management, today announced a 3-year licensing deal and partnership with La Jolla Institute of Immunology (LJI) to support the execution of a $6.9 million Asthma study funded by the National Institutes of Health/National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NIH NHLBI) that establishes one of only 10 PrecISE Network Clinical Centers nationwide. The new collaboration provides LJI with the Seqster Research Portal (SRP) technology that connects patients, clinicians and researchers to develop personalized treatments and find a cure for asthma by looking at longitudinal data for a 3-year period starting with 5000 participants.
The PrecISE network (Precision Interventions for Severe and/or Exacerbation-Prone Asthma), aims to identify more effective treatments for severe asthma. PrecISE is one of the most ambitious and innovative asthma trials to date that will support a personalized medicine approach to identifying therapies that are tailored to an individual’s disease.
“We needed a scalable and robust platform that supports rapid person-centric data aggregation as well as real-time collection of longitudinal health records data to build this important and ambitious research cohort,” says Stephen Wilson, Ph.D., Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of LJI. “The Seqster Research Portal is the only platform that will allow our PrecISE study participants to instantly collect and share medical records, genomic and device data with our researchers from anywhere in the country in a secure and transparent way while maintaining data ownership.”
“A commitment of this magnitude from such a prestigious research institute as LJI is further validation that Seqster’s person-centric approach to health data interoperability brings together patients, clinicians and researchers to accelerate discoveries, and we’re thrilled we can help support it,” says Ardy Arianpour, CEO and Co-Founder of Seqster. “It is exciting that our SRP platform is providing the technology backbone for such an innovative clinical study infrastructure that will yield important efficacy and safety data on novel asthma interventions.”

ABOUT SEQSTER RESEARCH PORTAL (SRP)
SRP is the launchpad for any de novo cohort to instantly populate longitudinal matched episodic (EHR), baseline genetic (DNA) and continuous (wearable/fitness device) data from consenting study subjects for any clinical trial or research study. The portal streamlines the study recruitment and consent process, directly importing Real-World Data (RWD) and Real-World Evidence (RWE) with chain of custody.
