ALR Technologies Announces Development Partnership Agreement With Insulin 
Algorithms; Successful Integration of the Two Technology
Platforms Could Lead to Near-Instantaneous Insulin Dosage
Consultation and Adjustment 
RICHMOND, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/05/13 --  ALR Technologies
(OTCBB: ALRT) and Insulin Algorithms (InsulinAlgo) announced a
technology partnership that would integrate Insulin Algorithm's
insulin dosage adjustment software with ALRT's Health-e-Connect
remote monitoring platform. An integration of the two technology
platforms would create a revolutionary system that would allow
patients to remotely upload their blood glucose data to the ALRT
platform and then, within seconds, the patient's physician could be
provided with an insulin dosage recommendation electronically when
the patient's blood glucose data and patient profile were run through
the Insulin Algorithm software. Proper dosing of insulin is one of
the most important and challenging tasks in diabetes care and an
effective system to dose insulin would reduce adverse events, improve
outcomes and reduce the costs of care for patients living with
ALRT's platform has received FDA 510(k) clearance but any commercial
use of Insulin Algorithms' software will require additional U.S. Food
and Drug Administration regulatory clearance. Under the agreement,
ALRT will have access to the InsulinAlgo software to begin the
integration process while InsulinAlgo's FDA clearance is pending.
Once integrated and tested, and after final FDA clearance, the
ALRT-InsulinAlgo system will be made available to the commercial
marketplace both in the U.S. and internationally.  
Insulin Algorithm's Founder and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Mayer B.
Davidson, said: "We are very excited about our partnership with ALRT.
I have spent a career studying how to properly dose insulin and our
algorithms embody that experience. This partnership with ALRT
represents the potential to offer our expertise to many providers
quickly and electronically, without the inconvenience of paper
logbooks and unnecessary additional physician visits. We hope to
serve as an experienced resource for those physicians who are on the
front line of diabetes care." 
ALRT's CEO Sidney Chan said: "We are honored to partner with Insulin
Algorithms as its founder is one of the world's most renowned experts
on the proper use of insulin. As the global pandemic has spread from
the developed world to the emerging economies, we believe there is an
urgent need to provide physicians and patients with the benefit of
the very best thinking about proper insulin dosing. Our partnership
has the potential to bring this knowledge as quickly and efficiently
as a text message. We believe there is a worldwide market for this
