"Our focus continues to be on delivering outstanding drug development and building stronger strategic relationships with our clients."

The new offices and expanded facilities in Latin America will help Covance expedite the execution of clinical studies with a full range of services, and build strategic relationships with investigators, sites, and regulatory authorities in a region known for its strong potential to contribute to high-quality global clinical trial conduct.

"We are committed to continuing to build our infrastructure across Latin America, expanding current facilities, and opening further new clinical offices to increase Phase III clinical trial productivity," said Wayne Langlois, Covance's vice president and general manager of clinical development services, Americas. "These countries offer qualified patient populations and investigators which help reduce clinical development timelines for our biopharmaceutical clients."

Covance offers clinical development services, including Phase I to IV clinical trial support in more than 55 countries which include emerging markets across Asia Pacific, Central and Eastern Europe, and Latin America.
