Date:4/14/2008

PHILADELPHIA, April 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- eResearchTechnology, Inc. (eRT), (Nasdaq: ERES), and nSpire Health, Inc. announced today their alliance to provide integrated Cardiac Safety and Pulmonary Core Lab Services to clinical researchers worldwide.

eResearchTechnology is a leading provider of centralized electrocardiographic (ECG), eClinical technology, ePRO, and other services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and related industries. nSpire Health is a leading provider of respiratory clinical trials services, including Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing, High Definition Pulmonary Diagnostics Systems, Spirometry, and Home Monitoring.

Under the agreement, eRT and nSpire will deliver a combined solution to meet the increased demand for cardio-pulmonary safety and efficacy services during clinical trials, in part caused by an increased interest in using inhaled therapeutics. The partnership will offer integrated services from project planning and set-up through study conduct, management, and data delivery for primary and secondary Cardiac and Respiratory clinical trial endpoints. nSpire Health will provide eSP(TM) Core Lab Data Management software, QA services, HDpft(TM), KoKo(R), PiKo(R), and PiKoLogic(TM) (electronic Diary) respiratory diagnostic measuring instruments. eRT will perform digital collection, measurement, interpretation, review, and distribution of cardiac safety data through its EXPeRT 2.0 workflow-enabled data management system.

"This alliance addresses a growing need in clinical research to offer comprehensive, best in class services in these two closely related areas of clinical study," said Michael McKelvey, President and CEO of eRT. "While many sponsors recognize and source each company for its respective area of expertise, customers increasingly seek consolidation and streamlining in all phases of a clinical trial. eRT and nSpire Health approach the market in the same way -- focusing on scientific excellence, providing a quality product, and client satisfaction. We are both metrics driven and process oriented to ensure on-time, on-budget, reliable data delivery on a global scale."

"Clinical trial sponsors have a strategic need to deliver accurate, cost- effective results in less time. They need therapeutic specialists that they can trust. This partnership leverages the world's most advanced Cardio- Respiratory specific technologies and data management services from each company into one unified source, reducing costs and accelerating time to market for emerging inhaled therapeutic trials," commented Michael S. Sims, President and CEO of nSpire Health, Inc.
