Virgo and CTNx Partner to Power GI Clinical Trials

Network of high-quality research sites will leverage endoscopy AI platform to expand and accelerate enrollment in gastroenterology clinical trials.

Virgo Surgical Video Solutions, Inc. ("Virgo") and The Clinical Trials Network ("CTNx") today announced a strategic partnership to expand and accelerate the identification, selection, and enrollment of patients in GI clinical trials across CTNx's expansive network of 30+ high-quality GI trial sites using Virgo's endoscopy data capture and artificial intelligence platform. 

The Clinical Trials Network brings physicians together to create a leading source of high-quality research sites to present to trial sponsors. Virgo's cloud-based, HIPAA- and SOC-2-compliant platform allows gastroenterologists to automatically record, store, and manage endoscopy videos without interrupting clinical workflows. Artificial intelligence tools developed by Virgo analyze complex inclusion and exclusion criteria set forth by trial sponsors, ultimately making clinical trials more accessible to a larger, more diverse set of patients suffering from GI conditions such as Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease. 

"We feel honored to be working with the CTNx team. We are both impressed by their network and excited to deploy our cloud-based products to their membership in pursuit of greater access, equity, and inclusion in GI clinical trials," said Ian Strug, Co-founder and Chief Revenue Officer of Virgo. "We believe this partnership will yield heightened study opportunities across a broad spectrum of diseases and device trials, in addition to adding standard of care capabilities to the everyday work of patient care."

"We are beyond excited to be working with the Virgo team and their best-in-class AI GI technology," said Keith Friedenberg, CEO of CTNx. "We feel this partnership is an exciting moment for the future of clinical trial recruitment. This accelerates our mission of bringing clinical trials to community physicians and their patients."
