Newcastle University Begins Recruitment for Clinical Observation Study

We are delighted to announce that Newcastle University has recruited two patients for the start of the IDEA-FAST Clinical Observation Study.

The goal of the study and indeed the IDEA-FAST project is to identify, profile and validate digital solutions based on mobile or residential technology for remote assessment of fatigue and sleep disturbances that could effectively be used as digital endpoints in assessments for RA, SLE, PSS, IBD, PD, HD and beyond. Identifying digital endpoints for fatigue and sleep disturbances that can be used in patients’ usual living environment will also enable the meaningful evaluation of impacts of these symptoms on ADL/HRQoL. The ecological validity of these digital endpoints will be tested using a large longitudinal cohort of four IMID and two NDD.
