Date:10/2/2007

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- With declining revenues and shrinking sales forces, pharmaceutical companies look to other functions, such as Medical Affairs, to maximize their sales support role, yet operate as a productive cost center. To achieve this goal, leading pharmaceutical companies run sleek and efficient Medical Affairs departments that truly enhance the sales and marketing function, thereby ensuring the creation of winning products.
