  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
  • Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein (MOG) Antibody Disease
  • Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder (NMOSD)

Cardiac Safety Services

MERIT provides standardized collection and review of cardiac safety data, often an important safety endpoint in respiratory trials. For example, many respiratory trials require a normal ECG at screening at a minimum, and others require certain QTcF or QTcB cutoffs for inclusion/exclusion criteria.

Advantages To MERIT’s Cardiac Safety Services:

  • Easily collect ECGs and spirometry in the same system
  • High quality capture
  • Electronic, centralized ECG system
  • Fully traceable 21 CFR Part 11 compliant system
  • All ECG data can be accessed anywhere in the world
  • MERIT team of cardiologists for expert central review

ECGs are captured directly via USB, and ECGs are transmitted as soon as the site saves the tracing. An ECG auto-interpretation is immediately available and allows for quick identification and response to any errors.

Dermatology

MERIT supports dermatology clinical trials focusing on scar measurement.

Dermatology areas of focus include:

  • Capturing lesions and counts
  • Acne counts
  • Monitoring skin/nail progression
