George Clinical and EPS Collaborate on Important HR+/HER2- Breast Cancer Study in Asia Pacific

SYDNEY, June 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — George Clinical and EPS Corporation (EPS), a global CRO based in Japan are collaborating on a rare Japanese academia-led global study seeking to advance treatments for unmet needs in Asian populations.

In 2019 George Clinical and EPS formed a strategic partnership to help expand their operations across the Asia-Pacific region. Together the organizations have partnered on over 20 studies, mainly in oncology, kidney, metabolic and cardiovascular diseases therapeutic areas. In this reciprocal strategic partnership, both companies come together to provide a seamless operating capability for clinical trials across the Asia-Pacific region and globally.

Since September 2019, EPS and George Clinical have been involved in a major study for the National Cancer Center Hospital, Japan (NCCH) on the clinical usefulness of a combination therapy in patients of any menopausal status with advanced or metastatic HR+/HER2- breast cancer. A major objective of NCCH for conducting this study (Asian, International, Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Phase 3 Trial of Tamoxifen With or Without Palbociclib +- Goserelin in Women with Hormone Receptor-Positive, HER2-Negative Advanced or Metastatic Breast Cancer – PATHWAY) is to investigate a potential new treatment. The NCCH run PATHWAY trial is a clinical research collaboration with Pfizer Inc., a research funder and a study drug provider.  The study is especially important, as Japanese investigator/academia-led global clinical trials have rarely been conducted due to language barriers, personnel shortage or limited research budget.

In 2016, among all the Clinical Research Core Hospitals in Japan, NCCH was selected by AMED (Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development) as one of the Global Clinical Trials Core Centers, focused on the reinforcement of facilitating international clinical trials in Japan between 2016-2018. This study is their first global investigator-initiated registration-directed trial (IIRDT) — an important step toward the pursuit of the development of treatments and new drugs for the Asian population.

EPS is managing the PATHWAY study conducted in Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan. George Clinical is entirely responsible for study execution in Singapore and Taiwan with specific duties including full study conduct, regulatory, safety reporting and site monitoring. George Clinical’s strong expertise in regulatory, site knowledge and oncology expertise in the Asia Pacific region add value to the EPS strengths in Japan.

This PATHWAY study exemplifies the value of the strategic partnership of two highly experienced CROs who combine their services to ensure that a sponsor’s study is conducted in the most efficient and effective manner to help bring new and advanced treatments to underserved populations. Both George Clinical and EPS have a proven track record of meeting a sponsor’s needs with proactive solutions to challenges and on the ground knowledge of sites, local key opinion leaders and cultural nuances. This is especially valuable regarding the specific regulatory requirements in different locations with local language and cultural expertise.

This Phase III trial has met its primary endpoint of demonstrating a statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in progression-free survival (PFS) for the combination of palbociclib plus tamoxifen compared with placebo plus tamoxifen in women with hormone receptor positive (HR+), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative (HER2-) advanced or metastatic breast cancer. NCCH believes the results of this PATHWAY study have a high impact for premenopausal breast cancer patients, for which a large percentage of patients exist in Asia Pacific with fewer treatment options. Detailed efficacy and safety results were recently presented at the 2023 ASCO Annual Meeting.

Based on the experience and network gained from this trial, NCCH continues to expand the research network through the Asia Clinical Trials Network for Cancers Project (ATLAS project) with the mission to create a multinational cancer clinical trial network and a sound structure for conducting international collaborative trials on a permanent basis in the Asian region.

About George Clinical
George Clinical is a leading global clinical research organization founded in Asia-Pacific driven by scientific expertise and operational excellence. With over 20 years of experience and more than 450 people managing over 39 geographical locations throughout the Asia-Pacific region, USA, and Europe, George Clinical provides the full range of clinical trial services to biopharmaceutical, medical device, and diagnostic customers, for all trial phases, registration and post-marketing trials.

About EPS Corporation
Since its establishment in 1991 as a pioneering CRO, EPS Group has been a Healthcare Solution Provider to pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, hospitals and clinics, and academia with various solutions from development to marketing, sales, consultation covering Asia and new values created in big data & AI, regenerative medicine, etc.  The strength of EPS lies in the fact that it has the greatest presence in Japan. In Asia, the company has multiple overseas offices and has focused particularly on solidifying its sites in the respective Asian countries, providing clinical development support services as well as SMO services.

Zoom brings together in-office and remote employees with the launch of Intelligent Director for Zoom Rooms

AI-powered Intelligent Director enhances connection and optimizes the conference room experience for hybrid work, using multiple cameras to give every participant their own space in Zoom Meetings

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) announced the launch of the award-winning Intelligent Director for Zoom Rooms. For hybrid meetings with a Zoom Room, Intelligent Director uses AI and multiple cameras to provide the best image and angle of participants in the room so remote participants can see each person clearly, even in large conference rooms.

“As more people return to the office, it’s no longer enough to deliver the best remote worker experience; every business needs a solution to deliver the best hybrid meeting experience,” said Smita Hashim, chief product officer at Zoom. “Even with some employees in the office, oftentimes other team members are dispersed, so meeting equity and inclusion become more important than ever. Intelligent Director is the solution that can bring employees together, regardless of location, so they can truly connect face-to-face.”

Intelligent Director is specifically designed for medium- to larger-sized rooms and helps avoid the “bowling alley effect.” Intelligent Director can individually frame up to 16 participants in a Zoom Room using multiple cameras, choosing the best video stream via a Zoom-designed AI, and send that stream to the gallery view of the Zoom Meeting.

An evolution of Zoom’s Smart Gallery feature, which uses a single camera and AI to give each person in a small to medium-sized room their own space in a Zoom Meeting, Intelligent Director takes this same technology to the next level for larger conference rooms.

For bigger meeting spaces, it is easier to be hidden by others when only using a single camera, so Intelligent Director’s multi-camera configuration and use of video AI technology provide meeting equity to everyone in the room, selecting the best view of each individual, even if they move around or turn their heads. Remote participants can now have face-to-face conversations with each Zoom Rooms participant, allowing in-room participants to be seen and heard.

Intelligent Director is made possible through the support of Zoom’s hardware partner ecosystem. Manufacturers, including Apple, AVer, Dell, HP | Poly, Intel, Logitech, and Yealink have supported Zoom with the computer, controller, and camera solutions necessary to produce this major advancement.

About Zoom
Zoom is an all-in-one intelligent collaboration platform that makes connecting easier, more immersive, and more dynamic for businesses and individuals. Zoom technology puts people at the center, enabling meaningful connections, facilitating modern collaboration, and driving human innovation through solutions like team chat, phone, meetings, omnichannel cloud contact center, smart recordings, whiteboard, and more, in one offering. Founded in 2011, Zoom is publicly traded (NASDAQ:ZM) and headquartered in San Jose, California. Get more info at zoom.com.

Redpanda Raises $100M in Series C Funding

Led by Lightspeed Venture Partners, the new round will fuel the streaming data company’s investments in WebAssembly, Apache Iceberg and serverless

SAN FRANCISCO, June 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Redpanda Data announced today that it has raised $100M in Series C funding, led by returning investors Lightspeed Venture Partners, along with GV and Haystack VC. With $165M in funds secured to date, Redpanda will leverage this latest capital infusion to enable data-intensive applications with new foundational capabilities that are beyond the scope of legacy streaming data platforms.

Redpanda continues to cement its position as the streaming data platform of choice for both transactional and analytical applications. With the ongoing cross-industry transformation of applications from batch to real-time and the rapid adoption of AI and ML, Redpanda has experienced a bumper fiscal year including 5X revenue growth and a workforce that has more than doubled.

“The hero of the Redpanda story has always been the engineer, hands on keyboard, behind a terminal, materializing her ideas into a working system. That’s who we built Redpanda for, and why we made it easy to use, scalable to double-digit ​​gigabytes per second, and compatible with all the existing applications,” explained Alex Gallego, Founder and CEO of Redpanda. “Last year we grew to thousands of production installations. The funds will help us accelerate this growth while building a future where all data is instantly available, with embedded processing in a multi-tenant platform that truly scales to zero, finally making streaming accessible to the 44 million developers in the world.”

In December 2022 Redpanda pioneered its industry-first Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) deployment model, which combines the efficiency of a fully managed service with the data sovereignty and security of self-hosting. BYOC has quickly become the preferred deployment model of more than 30% of Redpanda’s customers.

Redpanda has demonstrated tremendous momentum under Alex’s leadership,” said Arif Janmohamed, Partner at lead investor Lightspeed Venture Partners. “Redpanda’s data platform was built from the ground up for the cloud era and has delivered incredible performance and efficiencies for our innovative customer base. We’re excited that this funding will help to extend Redpanda’s go-to-market activities, bringing its benefits to an even greater audience.”

“When selecting a streaming data platform, the choice for Jump was obvious,” said Alex Davies, CTO at Jump Trading. “For starters, we needed assurance we’d have zero data loss. We also needed something that would meet our high throughput requirements. That put Redpanda in a class of its own.”

“As a new game studio, we needed to build a flexible data platform that empowers our developers to get real-time insights from game events, without having to worry about the backend infrastructure,” said Colin Riddell, Director of Data Engineering at Fortis Games. “Redpanda quickly rose to the top of our list for a streaming data solution because we knew that its engineers obsess over performance and reliability at scale, and we loved the fact that it is Kafka API-compatible and just works with the ecosystem we already know.”

Redpanda has seen broad adoption of its offerings across data-intensive industries such as finance, technology, cybersecurity, manufacturing, gaming, aerospace and more. The Redpanda streaming data platform is source-available to developers under the BSL license. Enterprises also partner with Redpanda for self-hosting in production environments and to access Redpanda cloud offerings. To learn more about Redpanda, please visit www.redpanda.com.

About Repanda
Redpanda is the streaming data platform for developers. Built from the ground up with a native Kafka API, Redpanda is engineered to eliminate complexity, maximize performance, and reduce costs. Trailblazers like Activision, Texas Instruments, Midjourney, StoneX, Cisco, Lacework, Optimizely, Vodafone, Moody’s, Jump Trading and NCR rely on Redpanda to push hundreds of terabytes of streaming data a day through their applications and services. Backed by premier venture investors GV, Lightspeed, and Haystack VC, Redpanda is a diverse, people-first organization, with teams distributed around the globe.
