Akili Launches EndeavorRx® Expedition - A Direct-to-Patient Product Registry
Akili Interactive ("Akili"), a leading digital medicine company, today announced the EndeavorRx® Expedition product registry, which aims to obtain feedback from patients receiving the digital therapeutic, and their caregivers, to determine the real-world effectiveness of EndeavorRx. EndeavorRx is the first and only prescription video game treatment cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is indicated to improve attention function in 8-12 year old children diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (see full indication below).
This fully remote, direct-to-patient registry is open to any patient who has been prescribed EndeavorRx by their healthcare professional and will provide insights into patient characteristics, usage patterns, and effectiveness of EndeavorRx in a real-world setting. Data from the registry will also be used to help improve the experience and education around the product for patients and caregivers, and enable Akili to iterate its product based on feedback and data received via the registry.
"The data we will gain from the registry is critical to expanding the real-world evidence base for physicians, payors, and caregivers alike," said Anil Jina, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Akili.
Caregivers and patients opt in to the study by providing electronic informed consent (eConsent) and assent (eAssent), as appropriate. Once eConsent and eAssent are obtained, participants and caregivers will provide data via an electronic patient reported outcome (ePRO) platform at baseline, and regular intervals after study enrollment. Potential future enhancements include capturing clinician and educator assessments.
EndeavorRx has been studied in five clinical trials including over 600 children with ADHD, which collectively demonstrated the technology's ability to improve objective measures and caregiver observations of attention function. The data collected from the registry will further support Akili's mission to treat the growing and largely unmet medical need of cognitive impairments with its digital therapeutic solutions, first within patients aged 8-12 with ADHD using its flagship product.
EndeavorRx Indication and Overview
EneavorRx is a digital therapeutic indicated to improve attention function as measured by computer-based testing in children ages 8 to 12 years old with primarily inattentive or combined-type ADHD, who have a demonstrated attention issue. Patients who engage with EndeavorRx demonstrate improvements in a digitally assessed measure Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA®) of sustained and selective attention and may not display benefits in typical behavioral symptoms, such as hyperactivity. EndeavorRx should be considered for use as part of a therapeutic program that may include clinician-directed therapy, medication, and/or educational programs, which further address symptoms of the disorder. EndeavorRx is available by prescription only. It is not intended to be used as a stand-alone therapeutic and is not a substitution for a child's medication. No serious adverse events were reported. Associated adverse events in clinical trials included frustration (6.1%), headache (1.3%), dizziness (0.6%), emotional reaction (0.4%), nausea (0.4%), and aggression (0.2%). All adverse events were generally transient. EndeavorRx is recommended to be used for approximately 25 minutes a day, 5 days a week, over initially at least 4 consecutive weeks, or as recommended by your child's health care provider.
