Kendle Expands Asia/Pacific Operations with Opening of Offices in Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Manila

Move strengthens Kendle's position as a global clinical development partner to the biopharmaceutical industry

CINCINNATI, June 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Kendle (Nasdaq: KNDL), a leading, global full-service clinical research organization, today announced the opening of offices in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Bangkok, Thailand; and Manila, Philippines. The new operations provide Kendle's global biopharmaceutical customers with access to additional patient populations while strengthening the Company's position as a global clinical development partner.

"Kendle is one of the few truly global providers offering comprehensive Phase I-IV solutions to meet the needs of the world's biopharmaceutical industry," said Candace Kendle, PharmD, Chairman and CEO. "Our expanded presence in the Asia/Pacific region enhances opportunities for patient access, creates efficiencies in the clinical development process and overall strengthens Kendle's ability to foster global strategic alliances with the leading companies in the biopharmaceutical industry."

Kendle's expansion in Asia/Pacific reflects the growing importance of the region to the global clinical research market. Recent research by the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development indicates that within the next three years, as much as 65 percent of all FDA-regulated clinical trials will be conducted outside the United States, with a significant number of these studies moving to Asia. Clinical research organizations with a sound understanding of the Asian marketplace will have a sizeable advantage.

"With more than half of the world's population, Asia offers an abundance of patients in nearly every therapeutic area," added Dr. Ross Horsburgh, Vice President, Global Clinical Development - Asia/Pacific. "Furthermore, governments have highlighted biopharmaceutical development as a key pillar to their economies, resulting in much more favorable environments for global clinical development work."
