Second Annual European Meeting to be Held In Paris
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pharsight Corporation (Nasdaq: PHST), a leading provider of software, strategic consulting, and regulatory services for optimizing clinical drug development, today announced that it will host its second Pharsight(R) Knowledgebase Server(TM) (PKS(TM)) European User Group Meeting on May 28 and 29, 2008 at the Hotel Concorde La Fayette, Paris, France.
The meeting provides an environment for industry scientists and developers to discuss challenges and advances in regulatory compliant PK/PD ("pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic") data management. Case studies will be presented by industry attendees to illustrate their use of PKS and the decisive impact the software has had on facilitating improved productivity in their drug development processes. More information is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Our expanding European PKS user base has requested additional opportunities to meet and discuss developments in compliant, high-productivity PK/PD data management," said Shawn O'Connor, Pharsight president, CEO and chairman. "These meetings allow PKS users to benefit from the experience of their peers and allow Pharsight engineers to maintain close contact with our clientele."
PKS is a high-productivity, regulatory-compliant enterprise data repository that manages clinical pharmacology data. PKS enables pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to better manage and control preclinical and clinical PK/PD data and analyses, thus supporting higher modeling productivity as called for in the FDA's Critical Path Initiative. The FDA is using PKS under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA). Companies also use PKS to build PK/PD data management architecture that complies with the FDA's regulation 21 CFR Part 11, which has set new standards for computer system validation and usage. PKS is directly integrated with WinNonlin(R) Enterprise(TM), Pharsight's industry leading PK/PD modeling and analysis tool for state-of-the-art modeling and analyses, and supports direct access to any ODBC capable data source. PKS also supports analysis with leading tools such as NONMEM(R) and SAS(R).
