Clinical Trial Using ALRT Health-e-Connect (HeC) System on Diabetes Patients Shows 1.2% Drop in A1C

Richmond, Virginia, UNITED STATES


ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - August 2, 2010) -  ALR Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: ALRT) announces that results of a clinical trial conducted by Dr. Hugh Tildesley et al. using the ALRT Health-e-Connect (HeC) System are published in Diabetes Care August, 2010. (http://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/33/8/1738.long)

The article is titled "Effect of Internet Therapeutic Intervention on A1C Levels in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Treated With Insulin" and showed A1C dropping from 8.8% to 7.6% for the Intervention Group using ALRT's HeC System. The A1C test is important in diabetes treatment management as a long-term measure of control over blood glucose for diabetes patients. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "In general, every percentage drop in A1C blood test results (e.g. from 8% to 7%), can reduce the risk of microvascular complications (eye, kidney and nerve diseases) by 40%."

Dr. Tildesley commented, "The effectiveness of using ALRT HeC System compares favorably to the recently introduced diabetes medications but at a lower cost with no side effects."

Without using the ALRT HeC System to monitor the patients in the post study period, the A1C values for the Intervention Group returned to base levels. These data are expected to be published in a separate article.

The Company recently announced the July 23, 2010 filing of a 510(k) with the FDA for the ALRT HeC System. The System will be available for sale in the U.S. pending 510(k) clearance expected before the end of 2010.
