"Expansion in the Asia/Pacific region, and India in particular, is essential to our continued success as a top global CRO," said Candace Kendle, PharmD, Chairman and CEO. "Our increased presence and capacity in the region will allow us to better meet the needs of our customers who are seeking to capitalize on India's cost-effective, yet high-quality clinical research capabilities to develop their compounds. Our expansion into Ahmedabad is another step in our continued development of a best-in-class infrastructure throughout Asia."

Kendle's India operations provide customers access to the full spectrum of early and late stage clinical development services conducted by staff experienced in running all phases of trials across all therapeutic areas. The new Ahmedabad office builds on Kendle's already strong presence in New Delhi, offering increased efficiencies and geographic coverage and providing access to the talent pool in the western part of the country.

Kendle's expansion in India reflects the growing importance of the country to the global clinical research market. With more than one billion people, a growing and improving research infrastructure, an efficient and evolving regulatory setting, favorable intellectual property laws, a large pool of medical professionals and established research credentials, India is quickly becoming a world power in clinical research. Analysts estimate that by 2011 as many as 15 percent of all global trials will be conducted in India.

Kendle's office in Ahmedabad is located at Kendle India Private Limited, B/901, Safal Pegasus, 100 Feet Road, Near AUDA Garden, Prahalad Nagar, Ahmedabad - 380051, Gujarat, India. In addition to its India locations Kendle currently operates offices in the Asia/Pacific region in Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai, China; Singapore; and Sydney and Melbourne, Australia.
