Date:9/16/2009

BOSTON, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Perceptive Informatics, a leading eClinical solutions provider and a subsidiary of PAREXEL International Corporation (Nasdaq: PRXL), today announced that it has enhanced its capabilities to provide medical imaging measurements for osteoarthritis clinical trials through an alliance with Optasia Medical, Inc. Perceptive Informatics is using Optasia's KneeAnalyzer(TM) software to supplement its existing medical imaging technology to improve the reproducibility of and reduce the time involved with image analysis of the knee in osteoarthritis patients.

"Medical imaging plays an important role in the early evaluation of new compounds in musculoskeletal related clinical research, including in the growing areas of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, and osteoarthritis," said Kenneth G. Faulkner, Ph.D., Vice President of Medical Imaging, Perceptive Informatics. "Our alliance with Optasia provides customers with better surrogate measurements in trials focused on knee-related osteoarthritis, a progressive disease. This relationship represents our commitment to help customers accelerate trials and speed new treatments to patients in the musculoskeletal therapeutic area."

Optasia develops software, which issued in clinical trials to identify and monitor patients who will benefit from treatment, to facilitate the more rapid, accurate evaluation of medical images with greater reproducibility. Optasia's software applications are based on the Optasia Platform, which employs model-based vision technology to detect, measure, classify and compare two-dimensional medical images.

Perceptive Informatics has a broad range of musculoskeletal imaging clinical research experience and capabilities. The Medical Imaging Group of Perceptive Informatics off
