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 promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

"There is a natural synchronization between the business models, the IoT is there to support ,” explained Brendan O'Brien, Co-founder and Chief Architect of Aria Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at the 15th International Cloud Expo®, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
