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.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
IoT is rapidly changing the way enterprises are using data to improve business decision-making.

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
