Transcripts - LDC's ADR.net Press Release

  • 1. April 4, 2014 ADR.Net Selected for use on Japan Environment and Children’s Study! LDC is proud to announce ADR.Net has been selected for use on the Japan Environment and Children’s Study (JECS). The JECS Study is similar to the US National Children’s Study (NCS) which examines the effects of environmental influences on the health and development of more than 100,000 children across the United States, following them from before birth until age 21. ADR.Net has been successfully used on the NCS since 2009 to ensure research data is of known quality and to ensure consistency of data entering the Study’s database. According to the JECS research group: “The major aim of this (JECS) study is to identify harmful factors in the environment affecting children's growth and health, and to investigate the relationship between such factors and children's health condition. On the basis of the results of this study, the Japanese government will make regulations and take measures to control the use of harmful materials which have undesirable effects on children's health. The final aim of this study and government action is to build a secure environment; where children can grow up healthy and parents can raise children with confidence in the safety of their environment.”
  • 2. April 4, 2014 As of April 1, 2014 the JECS Study has reached an enrollment of 101,000 mothers with over 76,000 babies born. Children will be monitored until they are 13 years of age. The analysis of biological samples began this year and it is projected that over 40,000 samples will be processed a year. Further details, including the background and study design, can be found in the JECS Study protocol paper located at: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2458/14/25. The diagram below provides an overview of the JECS study. Following the measurement of chemical substances, ADR.Net will be used during the “Analyze Results” phase of the study. In the coming weeks, JECS research staff will travel from Japan to LDC’s corporate training facilities in Carlsbad, CA to participate in ADR.Net training. LDC, Inc., along with its flagship ADR.Net application and dedicated commitment to quality and service, continues to lead the environmental industry in data quality assessments, data validation, data management and custom software development.
