SCIRENT and Virtonomy Announce Joint Efforts to Advance Use of Virtual Patients in Medical Device Clinical Trials

SCIRENT, a full-service contract research organization (CRO) specialized in cardiovascular trials, and Virtonomy, a pioneer in developing data-driven clinical trials using virtual patients, announced today their cooperation on the use of virtual patients in medical device clinical trials. Both companies offer services for the development of medical devices. By working together, valuable time and financial resources can be saved.

“Virtonomy offers medical device developers the possibility of anatomical testing and optimization even before examinations take place in the animal laboratory to save valuable resources”, stated Prof. Dr. med. Hans-Dirk Düngen, SCIRENT’s CEO and Scientific Director.

“We are thrilled to leverage SCIRENT’s global talent and customer base and help them be among the first CRO to utilize our virtual patients,” stated Dr. Simon Sonntag, Virtonomy’s Chief Executive Officer. “Virtual patients not only bring faster, safer and better medical devices that can improve the lives of patients, but they also reduce the number of animals needed for testing along with risky human trials.  We look forward to working together in this goal with SCIRENT.”
