ICON Seeks Acquisitions

ICON Public Limited Company (NasdaqGS:ICLR) is seeking acquisitions. Ciaran Murray, Chief Executive Officer of ICON said, “We then also look at other parts of the market, bio techs and mid tier and other opportunities to make more partnership developments, or do we look at more tactical places. We also then look at adjacencies. Is it time to look at things that we are not as strong in at the minute, and either grow them organically, or then accelerate the top line through acquisitions.”

Icon plc Launches Firecrest eConsent

ICON plc announced Firecrest eConsent, a next-generation electronic informed consent solution that incorporates key recommendations from the FDA’s recent draft guidance on informed consent. The e-Consent solution is a component of ICON’s new informatics hub designed to enhance the engagement of patient populations in the development process. One of the critical parts to improving this engagement is improving the informed consent process. Addressing the FDA’s recommendation for a more patient centric approach to presenting clinical trial information, ICON’s Firecrest eConsent employs videos and visual aids to assist in the explanation of complex scientific concepts and medical terms found in trial protocols. These educational techniques were developed based on research by Carnegie Mellon University, and have been systematically tested, to facilitate optimal patient comprehension and information retention. Firecrest eConsent enables patients to access materials via portals or through other online channels provided by the sponsor, giving patients more time to independently review and prepare questions for the physician before subsequently consenting to participate in the trial. Conforming with the FDA’s requirement for validating that e-signatures are written by the actual patient, Firecrest eConsent uses a new proprietary method to capture, confirm, encrypt, and store biometrics for each patient’s signature. Firecrest eConsent has also been designed to be compatible with sites’ existing IT infrastructure, enabling sites to adopt the Firecrest eConsent solution quickly and efficiently.
