Bridge Biotherapeutics implements Medidata technology to develop a novel therapy for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

Seoul, August 29, 2022 - Medidata, a Dassault Systèmes company, announced that Bridge Biotherapeutics is implementing Medidata’s cloud-based clinical solutions to optimize their clinical trial efficiency and manage clinical data by utilizing Rave EDC, Rave RTSM, and eCOA.

Bridge Biotherapeutics is digitalizing their phase II global clinical trial for their first-in-class candidate of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), ‘BBT-877’, utilizing Medidata’s solution that expedites the new drug development process. FDA approved a phase II trial for BBT-877 last month. Medidata’s three solutions, Rave EDC, Rave RTSM, and Medidata eCOA, connect into one unified platform that can streamline data management workflow, mitigate risk, cut development costs, and secure data integrity.

“Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a fatal disease that results in death within 3-5 years of more than 50% of patients if not treated properly. We are strategically focusing on this disease area. BBT-877 is a first-in-class autotaxin inhibitor for IPF and will be a first milestone to initiate global business development, including license-out,” said Jeong-Gyu Lee, CEO of Bridge Biotherapeutics. “I strongly believe that implementing Medidata’s solutions into our clinical trial will help us increase clinical efficiency and meet global data compliance.”

Rave EDC is the unified clinical research platform that connects processes, eliminates data reconciliation, and delivers cross-functional and cross-study data insight. RTSM is entirely unified with Rave EDC with no customized integration, helps randomize patients, and provides Direct-to-Patient (DtP) capabilities to monitor supply management of clinical drugs without downtime. Medidata eCOA is built as part of the Medidata Clinical Cloud platform, a patient-oriented clinical outcome solution that collects objective patient data. Medidata eCOA provides a single-distribution model that streamlines its establishment workflow and helps collect accurate data from patients, caregivers, and physicians.

Jaegu Yoo, Vice President, Sales of Medidata Korea, said, “The Bridge Biotherapeutics clinical trials for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis across eight countries, including South Korea and the United States, make it essential to manage an enormous amount of data with a systemic approach. We hope Medidata’s diverse and innovative solutions optimize the clinical trial operation workflow to develop this novel therapy, which has an unmet need in the IPF treatment.”
