Another buyout rumor is engulfing the biotech sector. This one comes on the heels of Thursday morning's key patent news announcement for small cap, NewCardio (NWCI.OB).
 
This Silicon Valley based company with a very small share float wanted "very badly" to meet with us for a one-on-one interview session at the OneMedForum conference in San Francico. Suddenly, they dropped off the face of the earth and no one could be reached for comments, much less an interview.
 
Why? What happened?
 
On the last day of the conference, rumors began to fly that the company was in deep negotiations for a buy out. After chasing the story for the last 24 hours, and seeing the key patent announcement hit the news wires on Thursday morning, it is my opinion that if the buyout occurs, it will likely send shares of NewCardio somewhere between $10 and $14.
 
The company has a hot new technology that is shaping up to be not only the next great diagnostics tool in cardiovascular medicine, but could also turn into "the ultimate medical phone app." There is talk about a hardware/software combo that would allow anyone to hold a smart phone-like device up to their chest in order to interpret/communicate the readings directly to a doctor.
 
Designers of this technology (who come from a tech background designing chips and microprocessors) have figured out that a great number of doctors simply do not know how to interpret heart monitor signals either correctly or accurately. They feel that EKG technology is "under utilized" as a diagnostics tool and see a multi-billion dollar market for their products.
 
Thursday morning, the company announced news about a key patent (which needed to be in place before the rumored sale) and the news sent shares flying.
 
If the rumors of the buyout are true, (sources confirmed to BioMedReports on Thursday afternoon that discussions are definitely underway) then shares could easily continue to climb from Thursday's already unusual high trading/volume levels.
 
According to an upbeat presentation at the OneMedForum in San Francisco earlier this week, NewCardio is said to be entering the commercial phase as a cardiac diagnostic and services company.
 
The company's proprietary software platform technologies provide higher accuracy to, and increase the value of, the standard 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG). NewCardio's three-dimensional ECG software platform reduces the time and expense involved in assessing cardiac status while increasing the ability to diagnose clinically significant conditions which were previously difficult to detect. NewCardio's software products and services significantly improve the diagnosis and monitoring of cardiovascular disease, as well as cardiac safety assessment of drugs under development.

NewCardio Awarded Key U.S. Patent for CardioBip
U.S. Patent and Trade Office (PTO) Approves Patent for Device and Methodology for Transtelephonic Transmission of ECG Data for Monitoring of Acute Cardiac Conditions

Press Release Source: NewCardio, Inc. On Thursday January 14, 2010, 8:00 am EST  
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/...-prnews-2727517628.html?x=0&.v=1

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NewCardio, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: NWCI) a cardiac diagnostic technology provider, announced today that on January 12, 2010, it received notice of allowance for U.S. patent 7,647,093, titled "Apparatus and method for cordless recording and telecommunication transmission of three special ECG leads and their processing," from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. This represents the core patent for CardioBip? and, in conjunction with the two encouraging validation studies announced on January 5, 2010, validates the CardioBip technology, positioning NewCardio as an emerging leader in remote cardiac monitoring.

The CardioBip is a unique, hand-held device that provides a solution for ECG telemonitoring. Patients can carry the CardioBip with them and use it to generate and transmit synthesized, accurate 12-lead ECGs at physician prescribed intervals of time, during ordinary daily activity or when symptoms develop. What makes CardioBip unique is its extreme ease of use, combined with the ability to generate recordings substantially equivalent in quality with standard 12-lead ECGs. The CardioBip works without any cables, cumbersome leads, wires or inconvenient skin electrodes, as the device's electrodes are integrated, offering potential compatibility with popular hand-held PDA platforms.

Branislav Vajdic, Ph.D., chief executive officer of NewCardio, Inc., commented, "This patent strengthens our intellectual property protection creating a significant barrier to entry for a competing device. We believe the CardioBip technology fills an important technological and diagnostic void, enabling not only rhythm diagnosis, but also detection of ischemic ECG changes and precise reconstruction of atrial activity. At present there is no convenient and reliable method for remote monitoring and detection of either ischemic events or derangements of atrial electrical activity, but this patent and the two recently completed validation studies indicate that the CardioBip may potentially fill this need. This patent protects the core technology underlying the CardioBip. The patent comes immediately following the encouraging results from two validation studies, which confirmed CardioBip's ability to record, reconstruct and transmit an accurate, high-resolution 12-lead ECG. NewCardio is committed to advancing the widely accepted 12-lead ECG to deliver innovation to the cardiac sciences. We are gratified by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's grant of patent rights and pleased that they approved all 33 claims."

Dorin Panescu, Ph.D., NewCardio's Chief Technical Officer and Vice-President of Research and Development, added, "NewCardio remains committed to an aggressive and comprehensive intellectual property (IP) strategy. The Company's IP portfolio evenly covers innovation and invention for all three of our solutions: QTinno?, CardioBip and Visual3Dx?. The patent issued today stresses the importance NewCardio places on patient-friendly, effective and accurate remote wireless patient monitoring, an important, emerging and under-served segment of health care."

Breakthrough Technology
 
http://www.newcardio.com/what-we-do-breakthrough-technology.php
 
The standard 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG or sometimes called EKG) is a diagnostic recording of cardiac electrical activity over time. The 12-lead ECG is cardiology's most frequently used screening and diagnostic tool. Over 200 million ECGs are obtained in the developed world each year, making it the most commonly performed cardiovascular diagnostic test. The ECG has a central role in screening and diagnosis of acute coronary syndromes (heart attack) and many other common forms of heart disease, and often provides the primary basis for critical therapeutic decisions.
 
Unknown by many, the standard ECG contains latent information about cardiac electrical activity that in total represents the three dimensional (3D) operation of the heart. However, today's standard 12-lead ECG merely represents that data as a series of 2-dimensional time and voltage readings, which must be synthesized into a 3D model of the heart operation by a clinician. It is very difficult, and in the case of some critical parameters impossible, for humans to perform this 3D synthesis in their mind.
 
NewCardio has developed a new patented and patent pending technology which can process this standard ECG data, and utilize and present it an easy to read format with additional 3D clinically significant diagnostic information. Importantly, no change in clinician practice of how ECG data is collected. Simply said - NewCardio does not change the standard practice for ECG collection.
 
The past 40 years have brought us remarkable gains in computational power. This creates an opportunity to extract substantially more diagnostically valuable information from the ECG signal. By continuing to develop appropriate mathematical algorithms and software, NewCardio believes that its proprietary 3D approaches can significantly enhance the ECG's diagnostic utility, reduce its complexity, and improve its ease of use for the medical professional. Results of first medical trials of NewCardio's technology at Harvard University Medical School and elsewhere indicate initial results to be very encouraging.

http://www.b2i.us/profiles/investor/...p;LangID=1&s=0&ID=8337
 
Dear Fellow Shareholders,  
As we approach the end of a transformational year, we are pleased to report to you that our management and board remain very excited about the opportunities before us. The successful commercialization of our initial product, QTinno™, has validated our platform technology which underlies our entire product portfolio. With this platform we believe that we have the potential to add value to virtually every one of the over ¼ billion ECGs taken annually today. In addition, we took steps to strengthen our balance sheet, despite the challenges within the financial markets, by successfully raising $2.9 million in additional growth capital. Members of our management team and board of directors purchased over half of the offering. This raise, coupled with our $3 million line of credit, is expected to fund our operations through the second half of 2010, by which time QTinno is expected to be generating positive cash flow. And finally, we enter 2010 with a strong team of proven industry leaders and the resources to execute our strategic plan.
 
This year was one of accomplishments. Most notable was the launch of QTinno, and the many efforts to reinforce our 3-D platform technology should not go unnoticed. To date, we have validated QTinno performance in more than 65,000 ECGs from seven drug safety studies, including four Thorough QT (TQT) studies. In all of these clinical validation studies, QTinno demonstrated accuracy and precision equal to or higher than core lab manual readings, with a consistent ability to detect drug induced QT prolongation induced by the moxifloxacin class of drugs (i.e. the “moxi” profile), as required by the FDA and other drug regulatory bodies.
 
Building on positive industry attention to cardiac safety and our increasingly robust clinical validation, we officially launched QTinno in August. QTinno provides an automated analysis of cardiac safety in drug development. This launch was enabled by an extensive effort by us to ensure organizational readiness to effectively support the sale, implementation and support of QTinno. As many of our shareholders know, every drug in development must undergo a TQT study to determine cardiac toxicity, and currently these studies involve manual or semi-automated readings by cardiologists.. We believe QTinno will replace this primarily manual process with a fully automated solution which promises higher quality results and a more efficient approach.
 
With our lead product launched, we continue to make steady progress toward securing revenue-generating studies. Notable commercialization-related achievements include:
 
A top-five pharmaceutical company named QTinno as the technology that will be used in all of its fully automated TQT studies. This pharmaceutical company evaluated several automated cardiac safety solutions before choosing QTinno.
 
A Master Services Agreement (MSA) was signed with a top-three Clinical Research Organization (CRO), which will use QTinno as their technology in fully automated Phase I TQT studies delivered by their centralized ECG core lab. We expect to collaborate on the first fully automated study in the near future and anticipate the customer will increasingly deliver fully automated studies with QTinno.
 
Another top-five CRO also signed an MSA with us, licensing QTinno in all TQT studies where fully automated readings are obtained. QTinno will enable them to eliminate the need to utilize ECG core labs for TQT studies delivered by their Phase I units. Ultimately, QTinno will provide the CRO with incremental revenue opportunities by capturing fees that were previously outsourced to ECG core labs.
 
Dedicated Phase I, an innovative provider of clinical research services signed an MSA with us, licensing our QTinno software solution in all TQT studies where fully automated readings are obtained.
 
We expect these initial commercial successes to be followed by additional MSAs with leading CRO’s, ECG core labs, Phase I units and potentially some pharmaceutical sponsors who currently perform TQT studies internally. This increased market presence will provide increasing access to the pharmaceutical companies that need to conduct TQT studies on all of their compounds. We anticipate that our first revenue generating studies will be in place in the near term.
 
Scientific validation coupled with the growing interest by FDA and industry to embrace an automated solution is the other cornerstone to success. In this regard, to support our 3-D platform technology and our lead product, our senior leadership has presented at a wide range of high profile industry events during the last year:
 
 
Dr. Ihor Gussak chaired the automated cardiac safety solution segment of the Cardiac Safety Vendor Workshop in London. The segment featured a Who’s Who in the cardiac safety industry focusing on the market adoption of the automated solution. Here, FDA representatives reinforced their support of the use of automated solutions in TQT studies.
 
Dr. Sam George, our Senior Medical Consultant, joined a distinguished roster of speakers, moderators and panelists at the Cardiac Safety Research Consortium (CSRC) annual meeting in October. At this meeting, we presented the results from our clinical validation studies clearly showing the superior quality of the data processed by QTinno. In addition, we also demonstrated how validation efforts with QTinno uncovered issues with data processed by the semi-automatic methodology practiced by ECG central core labs, bringing into question the accuracy of the methodology currently considered the standard by the core labs.
 
We presented two abstracts and discussed new clinical data from analytical and clinical applications of our proprietary platform technology at The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) 30th Annual Scientific Sessions.
 
At the DIA Cardiovascular Safety and QT/Arrhythmia Assessment in Drug Development - Optimizing Drug Development Conference, co-sponsored by the FDA and the HRS, we presented our technology and clinical validation results along with our primary automatic solution competitors, and the audience reaction clearly indicated that our results were superior.
 
These presentations and industry events help increase awareness of our 3-D platform technology and our product offerings. This growing interest has included the opportunity to present QTinno to the FDA, who viewed both the technology and our clinical validation results favorably as they indicated they would accept data processed by QTinno in a prospective TQT study for review. In addition to QTinno, we are excited about the opportunities for our platform technology beyond drug development. We are making progress in our efforts to develop CardioBip™ and Visual3Dx™. We are currently exploring strategic opportunities to include product licensing and, or co-development relationships that would align our resources with large global organizations to accelerate further development and marketing of these exciting platform products. Relationships such as these would accelerate revenue generation and create upside potential to our current plan.
 
CardioBip is a wireless medical device providing information equivalent to a full 12-lead ECG machine. CardioBip’s target market is outpatient populations with higher risk for, or with diagnosed, cardiovascular disease. The prototype of CardioBip is a trans-telephonic system comprised of a mobile ECG recording and transmitting device and a diagnostic center which receives, processes and analyzes the data. CardioBip allows a patient to record ECG data with a mobile recorder by easily self-placing it on the patient’s chest. We believe there is emerging opportunity in remote patient monitoring, especially using a wireless device. Recent comments by the FDA, and current trials, indicate that this is a particular area of focus with increasing investment and regulatory attention. Atrial fibrillation (AF) monitoring is a new, yet potentially lucrative, opportunity for CardioBip. AF, the most common type of arrhythmia, is a rapid uncoordinated generation of electrical impulses by the atrial chambers of the heart. In the US alone, more than two million patients are estimated to have AF. AF is commonly treated by use of anti-arrhythmic drugs, but the effectiveness of this therapy is limited and the resulting side effects may not be well tolerated. In order to assess the clinical progression of patients that undergo AF treatment procedures, the HRS Atrial Fibrillation Task Force recommends that AF patients be monitored, using an event monitor, for recurrent arrhythmias for up to two years. This new trend in AF remote patient monitoring opens up an opportunity for deployment of devices such as CardioBip.
 
Visual3Dx provides a comprehensive method to assess cardiac electrical activity in time and space. This product applies our 3-D algorithms in order to significantly enhance the value of a standard ECG, targeting the urgent care market initially. The product extracts additional information from standard 12-lead ECG signals by incorporating algorithms for real-time vectorial analysis and normalization tools to ensure accurate representation of all heart regions. This enables Visual3Dx to assess potentially fatal diseases and conditions, including acute coronary syndrome (ACS), with far greater accuracy than possible by standard ECG. Clinical results to date indicate there can be a 20% improvement in sensitivity. This demonstrates a substantial potential for improvement in accuracy in diagnosis of acute MI.
 
For 2010, our goals are to build upon our R&D and clinical validation successes that are driving the adoption of QTinno, in order to generate revenues sufficient to achieve profitability by the end of the year. We continue to develop additional relationships with sponsors, CRO’s, clinical pharmacology units and ECG core labs to achieve this goal. The industry is moving in the direction of automated studies, and our solutions provide the ideal method to achieve their objectives. We also plan to ramp up our new product development in conjunction with the appropriate strategic partners. We will be investing in additional R&D to advance Visual3Dx and CardioBip as we pursue these relationships, some of which may result in incremental revenue opportunities as early as 2010. We are particularly excited about the opportunities for the wireless CardioBip platform with the increasing industry focus on AF.
 
In summary, 2009 was a milestone year and 2010 brings a new focus – wireless – as we become a growing commercial enterprise. We have developed a disruptive technology that is ideally suited for the direction the drug industry is moving. We have received positive reactions from regulators and specifically the FDA, and are receiving an encouraging reaction from pharmaceutical companies. We have an exceptionally deep and talented team in place, and we are well-positioned for success in 2010 and beyond. Our board and management team remain excited about our opportunities and potential, and we trust you share this enthusiasm.
Sincerely,  
 
 
Branislav Vajdic, Ph.D.

The FDA requires that all new drugs be tested for potential cardiac toxicity early in development. Screening for the risk of drug-induced adverse, often lethal, cardiovascular events – such as those identified with Vioxx®, Seldane®, and Avandia® is of utmost importance for drug developers, and the public health in general. New drugs are often tested on more than 1,000 subjects, with ECGs collected at multiple time points. Current semi-automated methods for arrhythmia induced cardiac toxicity are costly and time-consuming. Using NewCardio’s 3-D approach, drug Sponsors and Contract Research Organizations (CROs) can automate this process, significantly reducing the cost and variability compared with non-automated methods, and reducing the time required to test new drugs in development.
 
QTinno™ Tools
 
QTinno™ is a software suite that provides accurate, fully automated and comprehensive analysis of QT intervals, and other ECG markers for cardiac safety assessment in drug development.
Key features
 
    * novel, fully automated assessment tool
    * sophisticated, proprietary curve-fitting algorithms to identify key cardiac events
    * fast, accurate and precise QT data from a broad range of difficult ECGs, and
* QTinno Client™ provides user friendly software platform for fast, informative human overview of QTinno™ results, if desired.
 
The QTinno™ algorithm first processes the input signal into a 3D representation of cardiac electrical activity over time. It then generates a "virtual sphere" of normalized cardiac electrical activity that includes balanced and complete information from all parts of the heart. This improves the signal-to-noise ratio and shows difficult-to-detect events with substantially greater clarity than the standard 12-lead display. In addition, QTinno™ incorporates novel curve fitting algorithms that ensure a high degree of accuracy. These advantages enable reliable, fully automated identification of key cardiac events - a problem previously unsolved.
 
QT Client™
 
QT Client™, which provides a user friendly software platform for fast, informative overview of QTinno™ results.
 
The QT Client™ user interface has been carefully designed to meet user needs, both in display and data analysis. Among other things, QT Client™ provides the user with an output that identifies the exact time of all key cardiac events used in analysis – such as Q onset, end of the T wave, heart rate, raw and rate-corrected QT interval, and statistical analysis.
 
In summary, we believe that for the first time, the definitive solution for automated, thorough or routine QT studies is being offered. QTinno™ by NewCardio will be differentiated in the market by the following features.
 
    * QTinno™ offers productivity and precision of automation and highly accurate results – even on more “difficult” ECGs
* Robust QTinno™ technology potentially adaptable to rapidly emerging problem of drug-induced propensity to increased rates of adverse cardiac events
    * NewCardio’s solution provides more accurate, more efficient, lower cost, and lower risk assessments of cardiac safety.
 
QTinno™ performance was validated using thousands of ECGs. Two drugs under development were evaluated for cardiac toxicity using QT interval change as the marker. Both studies returned remarkable agreement with the gold standard that was generated by extraordinary careful manual or semi-automated reading by multiple highly qualified cardiologists. Peer reviewed publications are in preparation.

Visual3Dx™ -  
 
http://www.newcardio.com/products-visual-ecg.php
 
Although diagnostically valuable, the standard 12-lead ECG has significant limitations. The ECG is a 2-dimensional representation of cardiac electrical activity, an inherently 3-dimensional event. As a consequence, significant amounts of important information are not used because the human mind is not capable of synthesizing all of this complex information. In addition, errors in interpreting the standard 12-lead ECG are common and can lead to serious clinical mismanagement. Errors of “major proportions” have been identified in 4% to 32% of ECG interpretations. The fear of wrong diagnoses and the associated legal liability results in many unnecessary admissions to hospitals of patients with chest pain. Many independent estimates put the cost of these unnecessary admissions in the US at well over $5 billion. New analysis approaches are urgently needed to reduce interpretative error and to improve diagnostic accuracy.
 
Visual3Dx™ Software
 
Visual3Dx™ is a set of algorithms and tools that provide a comprehensive method to describe cardiac electrical activity in time and space. Visual3Dx™ extracts additional information from standard 12-lead ECG signals and uses it to generate a 3D representation of cardiac electrical activity as a function of time. To further enhance understanding and ease of use, the program superimposes the diagnostically relevant electrical information on an intuitive, revolving 3-D anatomic model of the heart.
 
A key aspect of Visual3Dx™ is its suite of algorithms to correct the problem of variation in electrical attenuation across the chest wall. This leads to regional inconsistency and poor diagnostic sensitivity in remote regions of the heart. To correct this problem, Visual3Dx™ includes algorithms to normalize electrical attenuation, which results in a "virtual sphere" of normalized electrical activity, and ensures accurate and balanced representation of all heart regions.
 
We believe Visual3Dx’s features enable it to detect serious cardiac diseases with far greater sensitivity and specificity than is possible with a standard ECG. Importantly, however, Visual3Dx™ requires no change in standard 12-lead ECG practice. The ECG is obtained exactly as it is now, with the electrodes placed in the same locations without need for additional electrodes. Moreover, Visual3Dx™ displays the standard 12-lead ECG along with its novel 3-D analytical presentations. This allows the physician to make correlations between displays and provides reassurance that no information has been lost.
 

A typical Visual3Dx™ output that is easy to read and thus requires less training to interpret, when compared with the standard 12-lead display.

CardioBip™ -  
 
http://www.newcardio.com/products-cardio-bip.php
 
About 70 million Americans have some form of chronic cardiovascular disease. Of those, about 14M have documented coronary artery disease (CAD), with almost one million new cases diagnosed each year. Rapid response to an episode of arrhythmia or ischemia (heart attack) is critical to survival. In a moment of a heart attack, the survival of the patient depends radically on obtaining urgent medical care, essentially based on an ECG recording. Delays in accurate diagnosis are not only costly, but can be fatal. Earlier and more accurate diagnosis allows treatment within the first two hours (“golden hours”) when it is known to be most beneficial.
 
Research has shown that about 70% of the delay between the onset of the chest pain associated with a heart attack (myocardial infarction) and the intervention is attributed to the patient’s hesitation in seeking medical help. Many factors contribute to this delay, however the key is failure of the patient to recognize the seriousness of the symptoms and the need to immediately go to, an often overcrowded, emergency room. Thus a pocket size ECG machine that would be always with the patient, or high risk person, is needed. Instant wireless transmission of the ECG recording is necessary to dramatically shorten the time between the onset of symptoms and the intervention.
 
The available pocket-size ECG machines suffer from at least one of two drawbacks. They are either easy to use, but offer only a couple of channels, which reduces them to arrhythmia monitors, or they have leads (wires) that typically require a trained person (nurse) to attach them to the patient’s body.
 
CardioBip™ Hand Held Device
 
CardioBip™ is a unique, hand held device that offers the solution to the problem of urgent ECG telemonitoring, capable of providing truly comprehensive and accurate ECG data that is being transmitted wirelessly. CardioBip™ is unique due to its extreme ease of use, as it employs only three integrated electrodes, combined with the ability to generate a standard 12 lead ECG recording. The absence of any cables and integrated nature of its electrodes offers the potential for an integration with popular hand held PDA platforms.
Features
 
    * CardioBip™ is a cordless pocket device not requiring patient connection by leadwires.
    * Recordings are simply made by holding the instrument against the patient’s chest, similar to single lead devices.
    * The CardioBip™ device has 3 integrated leads that make contact with the patient’s chest.
* The unique data collected by CardioBip™ provides sufficient information to allow accurate, immediate reconstruction of a complete 12-lead ECG from a calibrated, patient-specific transformation matrix.
    * The CardioBip-transmitted data may also be analyzed with the Visual3Dx array of 3-D analytical tools.
 
These features enable more accurate and timely diagnoses of acute cardiac events, and facilitate immediate intervention in life-threatening situations – even when the patient is far removed from a medical care center.

"Buyout in the Works" After NWCI is Awarded Key Patent
 
 
Jan 15, 2010 (BAYSTREET NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) ----The same biotech news portal that reported RXI Pharmaceuticals' (Nasdaq:RXII) now confirmed partnership talks weeks ahead of time is now reporting that another buyout in the sector may be in the works at this moment.
 
Their report comes on the heels of Thursday morning's key patent news announcement for small cap innovator, NewCardio (NWCI.OB).
 
According to BioMedReports, the Silicon Valley based company with a very small share float became the subject of some "credible buyout rumors" on the last day of the recent healthcare conferences in San Francisco.
 
"Rumors began to fly that the company was suddenly in deep negotiations regarding a buy out," reports M.E. Garza. "After chasing the story, and seeing a key patent announcement hit the news wires on Thursday morning, its my opinion that if the buyout occurs, it will could send shares of NewCardio somewhere between $10 and $14." According to Garza, the company has a hot new technology that is shaping up to be not only the next great diagnostics tool in cardiovascular medicine, but could also turn into "the ultimate medical phone app." There is talk about a hardware/software combo that would allow anyone to hold a smart phone-like device up to their chest in order to interpret/communicate the readings directly to a doctor.
 
Designers of this technology (who come from a tech background designing chips and microprocessors) have figured out that a great number of doctors simply do not know how to interpret heart monitor signals either correctly or accurately. They feel that EKG technology is "under utilized" as a diagnostics tool and see a multi-billion dollar market for their products.
 
According to an upbeat presentation at the OneMedForum in San Francisco this week, NewCardio is said to be entering the commercial phase as a cardiac diagnostic and services company.
 
The company's proprietary software platform technologies reportedly provide higher accuracy to, and increase the value of, the standard 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG). NewCardio's three-dimensional ECG software platform reduces the time and expense involved in assessing cardiac status while increasing the ability to diagnose clinically significant conditions which were previously difficult to detect. NewCardio's software products and services significantly improve the diagnosis and monitoring of cardiovascular disease, as well as cardiac safety assessment of drugs under development.

NewCardio awarded core patent concerning its CardioBip ECG telemonitoring solution
 
17. Januar 2010 23:57 - THE MEDICAL NEWS
http://www.news-medical.net/news/20100117/...monitoring-solution.aspx
 
NewCardio, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: NWCI) a cardiac diagnostic technology provider, announced today that on January 12, 2010, it received notice of allowance for U.S. patent 7,647,093, titled "Apparatus and method for cordless recording and telecommunication transmission of three special ECG leads and their processing," from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. This represents the core patent for CardioBip™ and, in conjunction with the two encouraging validation studies announced on January 5, 2010, validates the CardioBip technology, positioning NewCardio as an emerging leader in remote cardiac monitoring.
 
The CardioBip is a unique, hand-held device that provides a solution for ECG telemonitoring. Patients can carry the CardioBip with them and use it to generate and transmit synthesized, accurate 12-lead ECGs at physician prescribed intervals of time, during ordinary daily activity or when symptoms develop. What makes CardioBip unique is its extreme ease of use, combined with the ability to generate recordings substantially equivalent in quality with standard 12-lead ECGs. The CardioBip works without any cables, cumbersome leads, wires or inconvenient skin electrodes, as the device's electrodes are integrated, offering potential compatibility with popular hand-held PDA platforms.
 
Branislav Vajdic, Ph.D., chief executive officer of NewCardio, Inc., commented, "This patent strengthens our intellectual property protection creating a significant barrier to entry for a competing device. We believe the CardioBip technology fills an important technological and diagnostic void, enabling not only rhythm diagnosis, but also detection of ischemic ECG changes and precise reconstruction of atrial activity. At present there is no convenient and reliable method for remote monitoring and detection of either ischemic events or derangements of atrial electrical activity, but this patent and the two recently completed validation studies indicate that the CardioBip may potentially fill this need. This patent protects the core technology underlying the CardioBip. The patent comes immediately following the encouraging results from two validation studies, which confirmed CardioBip's ability to record, reconstruct and transmit an accurate, high-resolution 12-lead ECG. NewCardio is committed to advancing the widely accepted 12-lead ECG to deliver innovation to the cardiac sciences. We are gratified by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's grant of patent rights and pleased that they approved all 33 claims."
 
Dorin Panescu, Ph.D., NewCardio's Chief Technical Officer and Vice-President of Research and Development, added, "NewCardio remains committed to an aggressive and comprehensive intellectual property (IP) strategy. The Company's IP portfolio evenly covers innovation and invention for all three of our solutions: QTinno™, CardioBip and Visual3Dx™. The patent issued today stresses the importance NewCardio places on patient-friendly, effective and accurate remote wireless patient monitoring, an important, emerging and under-served segment of health care."

Partnership/Buyout Rumors Make Sense for NewCardio Inc. (NWCI.OB)

  Posted on: Thu, 21 Jan 2010 09:49:38 EST
http://www.tradingmarkets.com/news/stock-alert/...wci-ob--718123.html

Rumors about a buyout or partnership with a major medical device player continue to gather steam around cardiac diagnostic and services company NewCardio Inc. (NWCI.OB). With a market opportunity of $5 billion, backed by statistics showing more than 250 million heart ECGs taken annually, the company believes that there is a huge opportunity for its products and the stock market has taken notice following their recent presentation at the OneMedPlace Finance Forum on January 12.

The key to the discussions, which several sources close to the company have continued to confirm, are many of the patents held by company and it's Chief Technical Officer and Vice-President of Research and Development, Dorin Panescu, Ph.D.

In October, the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology in the biomedical and healthcare industries recognized Panescu and awarded him the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) 2009 Professional Career Achievement Award for "groundbreaking contributions to the invention and development of medical devices for cardiac ablation, mapping, imaging and cardiac resynchronization therapy." He holds more than 130 U.S. patents in addition to the 70 published or pending U.S. patent applications. He joined NewCardio from St. Jude Medical, Inc., a $4.1 billion medical technology and services company in October of 2008.

It may not be long before Panescu is part of another multi-billion cap company given NewCardio's various unique and proprietary platform technologies. The company may not only be on the cusp of revolutionizing the way doctors and researchers use ECG data as a monitoring tool, they also appear to have key patents on a hardware and software combination that at least one major player in the medical device arena would like to commercialize.

Interestingly, one of NWCI's competitors, United Therapeutics Corporation (Nasdaq: UTHR) has also been gaining ground recently and closed last Thursday at its third consecutive new high for the year, trading at nearly $60 per share. That company holds the rights to the CardioPAL SAVI Wireless Cardiac Event Monitor which allows patients suspected of having cardiac arrhythmia to wear a portable device which monitors and collects ECG data then send it to a seperate wireless Smartphone via Bluetooth. According to UTHR, their proprietary software on the Smartphone then analyzes the ECG and sends the clinically relevant symptomatic and asymptomatic data to a monitoring center where certified cardiac technicians review it and prepare reports for the patient's doctors.

One of UTHR's subsidiaries, Medicomp, Inc. holds the rights to the only FDA cleared ECG algorithm to analyze rate, rhythm, morphology, and p-wave abnormalities, but NewCardio's propriety electrocardiography platform technology uses a smarter and more robust three dimensional (3D) approach to electrocardiography that allows for much faster, more accurate and less expensive assessment of cardiac status. In addition, the diagnosis of previously difficult or undiagnosable conditions using a single device could signal a significant paradigm shift.

NewCardio recently launched its first product, QTinno?, a fully automatic cardiac safety solution for Thorough QT and Phase I studies in Drug Development. That product is fully compliant and can analyze, at a minimum, 10,000 ECGs per hour resulting in a significant cost savings for sponsors conducting Thorough QT and Phase I clinical trials. Immediately, at least two top Clinical Research Organizations (CRO) signed a licensing agreement with NewCardio to use the technology and in doing so provided itself a powerful competitive advantage and differented itself from its competitors. In addition, NewCardio can deliver TQT/QTc studies for upload to the FDA digital ECG warehouse with greater accuracy and lower intrinsic variability than the legacy manual or semi-automated methodologies provide. NewCardio's software suite minimizes the risk of false positives or false negatives and delivers them in a more timely and cost-effective manner than any of the current core lab methodologies allow.

These types of innovations are what give whispers about NewCardio's potential buyout or partnership more volume. The stock continues to appear vastly undervalued, even after it's recent run up and subsequent profit taking pull-back.

Study of NewCardio's CardioBip Demonstrates Performance for Remote Wireless Monitoring and Detection of Atrial Fibrillation / Abstract Suggesting Improved Clinical Outcomes to Be Presented at Prestigious Heart Rhythm Society Annual Meeting

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NewCardio, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: NWCI) a cardiac diagnostic technology provider, announced today that the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) has accepted an abstract detailing the superior performance of NewCardio's patented CardioBip(TM) technology for remote wireless monitoring and detection of atrial fibrillation (AF). The study results, which discuss the use of CardioBip for improved AF monitoring and detection, are scheduled for oral presentation at the Heart Rhythm Society 31st Annual Scientific Sessions, May 12-15, 2010, in Denver, Colorado.

The abstract, titled "Three-dimensional Atrial Signal Reconstruction Facilitates Remote Detection Of Atrial Fibrillation," was written by Alexei Shvilkin, MD, PhD, Dejan Vukajlovic, MD, Vladan Vukcevic, MD, Ihor Gussak, MD, PhD, Bosko Bojovic, PhD, Uros Mitrovic, MS and Goran Simic, MS. The abstract highlights a new AF detection algorithm based on NewCardio's proprietary 3-D ECG processing platform.

Alexei Shvilkin, MD, PhD, of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School, the abstract's first author and principal investigator, commented, "Reliable detection of AF represents an important clinical objective that could improve outcomes for remotely monitored patients. Because of the low amplitude of atrial electrical activity and noise associated with use of remote monitoring, current systems predominantly rely on heart rate variability to detect AF. As a result, some patients may be misdiagnosed, especially those undergoing post-ablation AF monitoring. In this study, we showed that NewCardio's CardioBip-based wireless technology enables the assessment of atrial activity by using ensemble signal processing, 12-lead ECG reconstruction, and 3-D processing of atrial activity. The new algorithm detects the difference in atrial activity between AF and sinus rhythm and does not rely on heart rate variability measurements. It has the potential to improve patient monitoring outcomes by differentiating AF from other confounding arrhythmia (e.g. atrial flutter, atrial tachycardia) that may occur after AF ablation."

Mark Kroll, PhD, Fellow of the HRS and NewCardio's Chairman of the Board of Directors, added, "We are excited to share this important clinical advancement with scientists, medical professionals and industry leaders at the HRS Annual Scientific Sessions. We are grateful that the HRS accepted this abstract for oral presentation. This provides the Company with added confidence in the science behind its solutions for chronic care."

The CardioBip is a unique, hand-held device that provides a solution for ECG remote monitoring. Patients can carry the CardioBip with them and use it to generate and transmit synthesized, accurate 12-lead ECGs at physician prescribed intervals of time, during ordinary daily activity or when symptoms develop. What makes CardioBip unique is its extreme ease of use, combined with the ability to generate recordings substantially equivalent in quality with standard 12-lead ECGs. The CardioBip works without any cables, cumbersome leads, wires or inconvenient skin electrodes, as the device's electrodes are integrated, offering potential compatibility with popular hand-held PDA platforms. On January 12, 2010, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued patent 7,647,093, titled "Apparatus and method for cordless recording and telecommunication transmission of three special ECG leads and their processing." This represents the core patent for CardioBip.

HRS is the international leader in science, education and advocacy for cardiac arrhythmia professionals and patients, and the primary information resource on heart rhythm disorders. Its mission is to improve the care of patients by promoting research, education and optimal health care policies and standards. The Annual Scientific Sessions attract more than 9,000 professionals representing the allied specialties of cardiac pacing and cardiac electrophysiology. More information is available at http://www.hrsonline.org/Sessions/ on the Internet.

NewCardio Receives Notice of Allowance for Vital Patent for Cardio3KG(TM) / Represents Core Patent for NewCardio's 3-D ECG platform technology

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NewCardio, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: NWCI) a cardiac diagnostic technology provider, announced today that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for a patent covering technology relating to NewCardio's Cardio3KG solution (formerly VisualECG or Visual3Dx). This represents the core patent for NewCardio's anticipated emergency/urgent care solution, Cardio3KG.

The Cardio3KG solution is comprised of a set of algorithms and tools that provide a comprehensive method to assess cardiac electrical activity in time and space, and to extract additional 3-dimensional information from standard 12-lead ECG signals. This may enable Cardio3KG to assess potentially fatal diseases and conditions, including acute coronary syndrome, with greater speed and accuracy than possible by standard ECG.

When issued, together with US patent 7,266,408, this will be NewCardio's second U.S. patent covering broad aspects of the Company's 3-D ECG platform technology and, particularly, specifics of Cardio3KG, the first solution targeted to take full advantage of this intellectual property.

"This action by the USPTO reinforces our continuing investment in and commitment to our novel cardiovascular diagnostic platform technology, which provides 3-D analysis of the heart's electrical activity," stated NewCardio's CEO, Branislav Vajdic, PhD. "We believe the Cardio3KG solution will substantially improve the accuracy and timeliness of response and diagnosis for patients arriving at emergency departments with heart attack symptoms and related conditions. NewCardio's Cardio3KG will enable doctors to diagnose acute coronary syndromes more quickly and accurately than with traditional methods, possibly saving thousands of lives annually and reducing costs associated with unnecessary hospital admissions. We also believe Cardio3KG, along with QTinno(TM) and CardioBip(TM), represent important steps forward in validating our 3-D ECG platform's ability to improve cardiac diagnosis, clinical outcomes, and drug safety. We are pleased that patent offices in both the US and Europe are acknowledging our proprietary claims to our core technologies."

NewCardio Selected to Make Presentations at 15th Annual World Congress on Heart Disease

Presentations Highlight the Company's Advances in Telemedicine

NewCardio, Inc., (OTCBB: NWCI) a cardiac diagnostic technology provider, announced today that two of its most recent medical and technical submissions have been accepted for presentation at the prestigious 15th Annual World Congress on Heart Disease to be held in Vancouver BC on July 24-27, 2010. The Company will present data from both the advanced coronary artery disease (CAD) and atrial fibrillation (AF) clinical studies, with additional information from ongoing CardioBip? clinical studies. The data supports CardioBip's suitability for long-term monitoring of patients with CAD and AF.

The Company believes that acceptance of these submissions - which present important clinical data supporting the accuracy and effectiveness of its CardioBip product - reflects the growing interest in telemedicine and the recognition of NewCardio's technologies as effective solutions in the field. CardioBip is a unique, hand held device that gives accurate and timely diagnoses of acute cardiac events, and facilitates immediate intervention in life-threatening situations - even when the patient is far removed from a medical care center. Images of the CardioBip are available at www.newcardio.com/products-cardio-bip.php.

Branislav Vajdic, Ph.D., NewCardio's CEO, commented, "Our acceptance to the 15th Annual World Congress on Heart Disease reflects the remarkable and ongoing success of our academic medical collaborators, and our technical and scientific teams. We believe that they will provide strong technical and clinical evidence supporting the potential of CardioBip as a key telemedicine solution for monitoring patients with very serious and unfortunately common cardiac diseases. CardioBip, without any leads and wires, is patient tolerable and provides reconstructed full 12-lead ECG data. Many cardiac patients would benefit from this improved diagnostic tool and its better long-term monitoring options."

The Congress will provide the opportunity for a comprehensive overview of the latest research developments in cardiovascular medicine, primarily in the areas of molecular biology, coronary artery disease, heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias and cardiac surgery.
