- Provides expertise in high-growth therapeutic areas to pharmaceutical and

biotechnology companies

- Aggressive acquisition strategy over the last year

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Worldwide Clinical Trials, Inc.("WCT"), formed by Dr. Neal R. Cutler and a team of scientists, today reached a milestone in establishing itself as a premier global contract research organization with the announcement that it has closed the acquisition of MediQuest, a contract research organization providing specialized clinical development services to biopharmaceutical companies. The MediQuest acquisition was the most recent of five acquisitions made by WCT over the last year including Evidence Clinical and Pharmaceutical Research LLC, Clinical Studies Management Group, Inc., Nottingham Clinical Research Limited and CEDRA Corporation. The five acquisitions extend WCT's global footprint to more than 30 countries.

WCT is a leading therapeutically focused contract research organization that applies deep therapeutic expertise to help customers achieve their drug development goals. WCT provides clinical consulting and Phase I-IV drug development services -- including clinical trial design, clinical operations, data management, biostatistics, medical affairs, safety/pharmacovigilance, Electronic Data Capture and Interactive Voice Response System technologies, regulatory affairs, quality assurance bioanalytical services (LC-MS-MS, ligand binding, biomarkers), and pharmacokinetics -- for global pharma, specialty pharma and biotech companies.

Formed in 2007 by Dr. Cutler in partnership with The Jordan Company, a leading private equity firm, the company focuses on complex, high-growth therapeutic areas with primary expertise in central nervous system, and cardiovascular disease, along with significant experience in chronic inflammatory disease, metabolic / endocrinology and oncology. As expertise in these areas continues to be in demand, Worldwide Clinical Trials has sought to broaden its business through strategic growth and a highly selective acquisition strategy of companies that complements its existing skill-set.

"The acquisitions we have completed to date significantly enhance our contract research organization capabilities and our ability to manage large, global trials, within our primary therapeutic areas of focus. That in turn positions us well for future growth," said Dr. Cutler. "We have effectively expanded our operations and significantly enhanced our ability to meet the global needs of pharma and biotech companies. Our presence in Eastern Europe and Russia, two of the most attractive growth regions for clinical trials, helps transform our business into a truly global contract research organization."

Dr. Cutler and his team have reunited under the name of their former company, Worldwide Clinical Trials, which they founded in 1994 and sold to UnitedHealth in 1999. Dr. Cutler is known for pioneering several revolutionary techniques that increased the quality, safety and speed of drug development.
