AstraZeneca Implements Customized Cytel East(R) Software for More Accurate Trial Monitoring and Clinical Data Analysis
Date:2/13/2009

Top Global Pharmaceutical Company Integrates Their Clinical Data System (CDS) and East(R) for Improved Clinical Data Handling and Trial Analysis

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Cytel Inc. today announced that AstraZeneca International has expanded their deployment of Cytel's East(R) software, the most widely-used clinical trial design, simulation and monitoring system available. AstraZeneca's increased use of East(R) also features automated data transfer between their CDS and East's trial monitoring component. By eliminating manual data entry, AstraZeneca achieved the multiple benefits of greater clinical trial analysis efficiency and increased security of vital study data.

Cytel Vice President of Business Development, Steve Herbert, recalled the initial request: "AstraZeneca came to Cytel looking to improve data entry into East(R) from their own Clinical Data System (CDS). Our software engineers worked closely with their AstraZeneca's counterparts to help achieve far more efficient data handling within their CDS path and ensure compliance with Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) guidelines."

Maria Johansson, Business Tools Manager at AstraZeneca praised Cytel's response saying, "Cytel's customized version of East(R) for AstraZeneca is now fully integrated with our clinical data system eliminating any manual data handling and better facilitating the data analysis process. This new automation also helps us maintain the integrity of the interim data, reducing the risk of unintentional un-blinding."

Of the experience, Mrs. Johansson remarked, "The cooperation between AstraZeneca and Cytel has been very good. We're very pleased with the outcome."
