Pharsight's Reporting and Analysis Services Business Reaches Quality Assurance Milestone

New Consulting Unit Hosts Three Customer Audits, Continues Growth Strategy

That Leverages Pharsight's Industry-Leading Software Tools

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pharsight Corporation (Nasdaq: PHST), a leading provider of software, strategic consulting, and regulatory services for optimizing clinical drug development, today announced that three global biopharmaceutical companies have performed audits of its Reporting and Analysis Services (RAS) unit. The three global drug development organizations that have performed audits of the RAS unit's capabilities are a Top 50 pharmaceutical company, a mid-sized specialty pharmaceutical company, and a leading biotechnology company.

The audits covered RAS operating practices and procedures for study analysis and reporting, RAS facilities, and RAS technology infrastructure. The ability of the RAS unit to support customer quality assurance audits underscores the unit's recently expanded quality assurance capabilities, and reflects the establishment of its quality management infrastructure which expands the types of services RAS can provide to Pharsight customers.

The RAS unit provides pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) analysis and reporting for preclinical and clinical studies, utilizing Pharsight's industry-leading modeling, data management and reporting software tools to provide timely, high-quality analyses supporting sponsors' new drug application submissions. To date RAS has signed consulting agreements for PK/PD analysis and reporting and for population pharmacokinetic modeling with more than 20 pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.

Since its launch in May 2007, the RAS unit has implemented and validated Pharsight's WinNonlin(R) and WinNonlin AutoPilot(TM) software products to support efficient delivery of non-compartmental analysis and reporting. The RAS group has also more than tripled its staff, including the addition of a Quality Assurance Inspector, and has plans to expand its facilities in Montreal, Canada.

"These recent audits provided third-party evaluations of the ability of our RAS team to deliver quality work in compliance with customer and regulatory expectations, utilizing our market-leading software," said Shawn O'Connor, president, CEO, and chairman of Pharsight. "Our RAS unit enables drug developers to meet their growing needs for timely PK/PD modeling. RAS uses our software such as WinNonlin and WinNonlin AutoPilot to deliver submission-quality reports quickly and efficiently. We have created an internal infrastructure that will allow us to take on additional client projects with similar regulatory compliance needs. We believe this infrastructure supports our RAS unit's ability to consistently meet the highest scientific standards, and positions the group to continue serving clients who expect regulatory compliance in the handling of their modeling and simulation projects."
