Instem Presenting "SEND for DART: What Is It and When Is It Coming?"

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA – June 23, 2015 - - Instem, a leading provider of IT solutions to the global early development healthcare market, is pleased to announce that Marc Ellison, SEND-submit™ Product Manager, Instem, will present at the 55th Annual Meeting of the Teratology Society, Montreal, Québec.  

The poster presentation, “SEND for DART: What Is It and When Is It Coming?” will discuss the status of the development of SEND (Standard for Exchange of Nonclinical Data) for Development and Reproductive Toxicology (DART) studies. This extension to the standard has been in development for a number of years and the first version is expected to be issued by CDISC in the near future.

The presentation will discuss the ‘3 phase approach’ taken to divide DART into embryo/fetal development, fertility and early embryonic development and pup development, along with the impact of SEND in each of these areas. Specific Domains, Variables, Concepts and new Controlled Terminology making up version 1.0 will be reviewed and the timing and intentions of subsequent versions will be addressed.

“The Teratology Society Meeting provides the ideal forum for Instem to help the Developmental & Reproductive Toxicology community prepare for the introduction of SEND; for many attendees, this presentation may be their first exposure to the standard,” said Mr. Ellison.  “Our presence at this meeting supports Instem’s ongoing commitment to educating and preparing the community for SEND.”
