Programme ARTERIA - L'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal pilotera #ARTERIA : un programme de recherche d'envergure pour les patients atteints ou à risque d'une maladie cardiovasculaire

MONTRÉAL, February 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --



C'est en présence de la première ministre du Québec, Pauline Marois, accompagnée des ministres québécois Nicolas Marceau, Jean-François Lisée et Élaine Zakaïb, du maire de Montréal Denis Coderre et de représentants d'entreprises pharmaceutiques internationales que le docteur Jean-Claude Tardif, directeur du Centre de recherche de l'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal (ICM), a rendu public aujourd'hui le programme de recherche ARTERIA visant la recherche de traitements novateurs dans la lutte contre les maladies cardiovasculaires, la première cause mondiale de décès. « Une fois de plus, l'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal et son équipe de médecins, de chercheurs et de professionnels dédiés se démarquent comme leader mondial de la lutte contre les maladies cardiovasculaires. Ce programme aura des effets positifs et tangibles sur les patients atteints ou à risque de maladies cardiovasculaires », a déclaré le docteur Tardif.

Les voies de découvertes et d'innovation, qui sont rendues possibles grâce à ce programme unique, apporteront des bénéfices considérables aux patients à moyen et à long terme en venant transformer les pratiques médicales de traitement des maladies cardiovasculaires tout en se traduisant par des économies majeures pour le système de santé. ARTERIA permettra, entre autres, d'offrir une médecine de plus en plus personnalisée, de mieux soigner et de mieux médicamenter les patients et ainsi de sauver des vies. Rappelons que les maladies cardiovasculaires sont la principale cause d'hospitalisation et de décès sur la planète et plus de 1,3 million de personnes au pays en souffrent. Les maladies cardiovasculaires constituent également le fardeau le plus important dans les coûts de santé avec près de 22 G$ par année.

Un investissement majeur de 49,2 M$ grâce à un partenariat inédit

Ce projet novateur et d'envergure est rendu possible grâce à un montage financier de 49,2 M$, dont 18,2 M$ proviennent du gouvernement du Québec et 31 M$ d'investissements privés liés au secteur biopharmaceutique. « Nous sommes très fiers, au Centre de recherche de l'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal, d'avoir réussi à réunir autour de ce programme de recherche des intervenants clés tels que le gouvernement du Québec, l'Université de Montréal et les entreprises pharmaceutiques les plus innovantes du monde, afin de mettre au service de nos patients et de l'ensemble des Québécois les fruits de cette importante recherche », a renchéri le docteur Tardif. ARTERIA entraînera aussi la création de 150 nouveaux emplois directs et hautement qualifiés.

Présents lors de l'annonce, les principaux partenaires privés ont tenu à saluer l'initiative du Centre de recherche de l'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal au sujet de la mise sur pied de ce projet novateur, soulignant par le fait même le leadership incontestable de l'Institut sur la scène internationale.

« Par notre collaboration, nous sommes en mesure de combiner la recherche médicale et scientifique de portée mondiale de l'ICM avec nos capacités en médecine translationnelle et en développement clinique. C'est pourquoi pour Hoffmann-La Roche ltée, il ne fait aucun doute que l'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal est une institution québécoise de classe mondiale », de mentionner le président-directeur général pour le Canada, M. Ronnie Miller.

Autre partenaire principal d'ARTERIA, Servier Canada inc., par le biais de son chef de la Direction au Canada, M. Frédéric Fasano a insisté sur la longue collaboration entre les deux entités : « Notre collaboration avec l'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal a démarré il y a plus de 15 ans. Elle a été extrêmement productive en études et en innovations puisqu'un médicament traitant des malades d'insuffisance cardiaque a été largement façonné dans les murs de l'Institut. Travailler avec l'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal, c'est côtoyer les médecins cardiologues et les chercheurs d'un des tout premiers centres de cardiologie en Amérique du Nord ».

Enfin, le partenaire MedImmune (filiale d'AstraZeneca) a tenu à souligner l'unicité de l'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal et de son modèle. « En participant au programme ARTERIA, AstraZeneca, comme tous les partenaires publics et privés et tous les patients, bénéficiera de ce plateau technique exceptionnel dans le monde qu'est l'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal. Seul l'Institut offre un modèle intégré allant de la génétique aux grandes études cliniques, en passant par la cellule. L'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal est une institution unique en son genre dans le monde », a poursuivi la docteure Fouzia Laghrissi-Thode, vice-présidente mondiale responsable de la franchise cardiovasculaire et métabolique pour AstraZeneca à Londres.

Le Dr Guy Breton, recteur de l'Université de Montréal, à laquelle l'Institut de Cardiologie est affilié, s'est réjoui de l'annonce « Nous sommes très fiers des trois équipes de chercheurs de l'Université de Montréal qui ont reçu des subventions dans le cadre de ce nouveau programme. Je félicite tout particulièrement le Dr Tardif et son équipe de l'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal qui mèneront un programme de recherche novateur à tous points de vue. En cette journée de la Saint-Valentin qui nous rappelle l'importance du cœur, je me réjouis de savoir que des chercheurs de très haut calibre auront accès aux ressources et aux partenaires qui leur permettront de développer de nouvelles avenues pour améliorer la santé cardiaque.

Étant le fruit d'un vaste partenariat diversifié, ARTERIA est aussi rendu possible par la contribution importante et l'appui tangible des autres partenaires suivants : Valeant Canada, Pharmascience inc., Thrasos Therapeutics inc., Pfizer Canada inc., Spartan Bioscience inc. et la Fondation de l'Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip? It’s a bold move, but you might consider walking away from your core platform and starting fresh. ReadyTalk did exactly that. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, will discuss why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and over a decade of audio conferencing product development to start an innovati...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

For more than two decades, Bsquare has helped its customers extract business value from a broad array of physical assets by making them intelligent, connecting them, and using the data they generate to optimize business processes.
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
Identity is in everything and customers are looking to their providers to ensure the security of their identities, transactions and data. With the increased reliance on cloud-based services, service providers must build security and trust into their offerings, adding value to customers and improving the user experience. Making identity, security and privacy easy for customers provides a unique advantage over the competition.
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...
If you had a chance to enter on the ground level of the largest e-commerce market in the world – would you? China is the world’s most populated country with the second largest economy and the world’s fastest growing market. It is estimated that by 2018 the Chinese market will be reaching over $30 billion in gaming revenue alone. Admittedly for a foreign company, doing business in China can be challenging. Often changing laws, administrative regulations and the often inscrutable Chinese Interne...
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
SYS-CON Events announced today that Commvault, a global leader in enterprise data protection and information management, has been named “Bronze Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 19th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on November 1–3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the protocols that communicate data and the emerging data analy...
Digital innovation is the next big wave of business transformation based on digital technologies of which IoT and Big Data are key components, For example: Business boundary innovation is a challenge to excavate third-party business value using IoT and BigData, like Nest Business structure innovation may propose re-building business structure from scratch, as Uber does in the taxicab industry The social model innovation is also a big challenge to the new social architecture with the design fr...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...
