PAREXEL Partners with Glenmark to Win the Good Clinical Practice Journal Award for Most Innovative Patient Recruitment Strategy
Date:10/29/2008

BOSTON, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PAREXEL International Corporation (Nasdaq: PRXL), a leading global biopharmaceutical services provider, in partnership with Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Ltd, today announced that it has been recognized by the Good Clinical Practice Journal (GCPj) as the winner of its Most Innovative Patient Recruitment Strategy Award. The award recognizes the impressive collaborative efforts of PAREXEL and study sponsor Glenmark, a research-driven innovation-led organization that focuses on delivering new molecules, in taking an innovative approach to accelerating study timelines. This approach substantially helped Glenmark make earlier, more effective decisions about a novel diabetes compound by incorporating a combined protocol design into an early phase clinical development program, which is now progressing well in Phase IIb. The program also leveraged PAREXEL's unique, global early phase patient recruitment strategies.

According to Helena Jensen, Publisher of the Good Clinical Practice Journal, "We are pleased to recognize PAREXEL for its outstanding expertise in volunteer and patient recruitment as well as its novel approaches in early phase development. PAREXEL has demonstrated the kind of innovation that is required in partnering with biopharmaceutical companies to help them address growing study complexity, avoid late stage failures, use rapid recruitment access methods, and bring important, safe and effective treatments to the market."

"Our global clinical pharmacology team worked with Glenmark to develop an innovative way to accelerate recruitment, leverage global strategies, and use regulatory submission timelines to full advantage for the company's clinical development program," said Michelle Middle, MB ChB, Corporate Vice President and Worldwide Head of Clinical Pharmacology at PAREXEL. "We are honored to receive this award in partnership with Glenmark from GCPj, which recognizes the in-depth expertise that PAREXEL brings to bear to help clients identify and select the most promising compounds, and make better and faster go/no-go decisions."

The early phase development program included evaluating the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic, and pharmacodynamic effects in healthy volunteers in single and multiple ascending dose Phase I studies. The Phase I studies were followed by a Proof of Concept study in 60 patients with Type II diabetes. The multi-site program used three of PAREXEL's Clinical Pharmacology Research Units in London, England, and in Bloemfontein and George, South Africa. Global patient recruitment strategies and the combined protocol developed by PAREXEL and Glenmark contributed to accelerating development timelines and exceeding milestone targets. Results included enabling Glenmark to make a go/no-go decision seven months earlier and complete the program 30 percent faster than is typical during early phase drug development.
