Pharsight Signs Two New DMX(R) License Customers
Date:4/2/2008

US and Japanese-Based Top 25 Global Pharmaceutical Companies Select Drug

Model Explorer(R) for Model-Based Product Profile Visualization

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 2, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pharsight Corporation (Nasdaq: PHST), a leading provider of software, strategic consulting, and regulatory services for optimizing clinical drug development, today announced that two Top 25 global pharmaceutical companies have become customers for its Drug Model Explorer (DMX) software. Scientists in each of the customer's clinical pharmacology groups expect to use DMX to rapidly display and share model-based results, including quantitative assessments of the competitive treatment landscape, with global development colleagues. The DMX license agreements are the tenth and eleventh that Pharsight has signed with leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in Europe, Japan and the United States.

DMX is a web-based software tool that allows clinical drug development teams to quickly and efficiently explore the modeled efficacy, safety, and other performance attributes of a new drug versus competing therapies. DMX results provide a database of model-based knowledge on drug properties that can be leveraged across development programs and between therapeutic areas. The newest DMX release, version 1.6, displays the chance that a modeled drug effect will meet a specific target profile, through additions to the software interface that present probabilistic results more prominently to support clinical development decision-making.

"Pharsight is pleased that our two newest customers recognize the contribution that modeling and simulation, combined with the novel visualization technology that DMX offers, can make to improve drug development decision-making for promising therapies in their pipelines," said Shawn O'Connor, president, chief executive officer and chairman of Pharsight. "We believe DMX can enhance the cost and efficiency benefits of using modeling and simulation by helping clinical development project teams make decisions earlier and with greater confidence."

"DMX's intuitive visualization of model-based product profiles enables drug development teams to interact with complex information, particularly when a new drug faces tough competition," continued Mr. O'Connor. "We continue to see leading drug development organizations incorporate quantitative modeling and simulation, as advocated by the Food and Drug Administration in its Critical Path Initiative, into their decision-making processes."

About DMX

DMX is a software visualization and communication tool to explore model-based results of a compound's product profile. Through the DMX interface the development team can address key strategic development questions by comparing probabilistic outcomes for different endpoints, treatment strategies, and patient populations against competing products. DMX results are presented as a series of plots and tables that can be quickly updated based on pre-simulated models of clinical effect. Results are accessible from networked desktop or laptop computers for individual exploration, interactive team discussion, and communication of development strategies and program alternatives with senior decision-makers. Pharsight believes that DMX will help increase the usage of quantitative decision-making in the drug development process.
