Covance Opens New Clinical Development Offices in Brazil and Mexico
Date:9/9/2009

PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Covance Inc. (NYSE: CVD) today announced the opening of new clinical development offices in Sao Paolo, Brazil and Mexico City, Mexico. These offices further expand Covance's global footprint with a comprehensive range of services across Latin America. Earlier this year, Covance announced new offices in Santiago, Chile and Lima, Peru. These new sites will support staff in these countries, Central America, and the Caribbean, as well as the regional network of field-based clinical research associates in the region.

Covance has been providing clinical trial support in Latin America since 1997 with the company's first office in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Operations in the region expanded quickly through a network of regional clinical trial monitors trained and supervised under guidelines meeting both local and international regulatory requirements as well as global Covance quality standards.

"Our continued expansion in Latin America highlights the region's growing significance in Covance's clinical development service offerings. These new offices increase our access to patients who are currently not receiving medical therapies and will enable us to shorten clinical trial cycle times for our pharmaceutical and biotech clients," said Wayne Langlois, vice president and general manager of global clinical development services at Covance.

"The clinical trials we conduct in Latin America are part of a carefully weighted site selection approach that not only produces high-quality data on time, but also satisfies the requirements of regulatory authorities," said Katie Margules, senior director for Latin America.

Covance offers clinical development services for Phase I to III clinical trials in more than 55 countries which include emerging markets across Asia Pacific, Central and Eastern Europe, and Latin America. With a full suite of services to take a drug through all stages of development, Covance offers extensive clinical and therapeutic expertise, global reach, proactive project management, and strong investigator site relationships to consistently deliver high quality data on time.
