Pharsight Signs New Diabetes Meta-Database Customer

Top 20 Global Pharmaceutical Company Licenses Public-Source Database to Quantify Competitive Treatment Landscape and Support Model-Based Drug


MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pharsight Corporation (Nasdaq: PHST), a leading provider of software, strategic consulting, and regulatory services for optimizing clinical drug development, today announced that it has licensed its public-source Type II Diabetes meta- database to a Top 20 global pharmaceutical company. The customer expects to use the database to build quantitative models of the competitive landscape for oral diabetes treatments that will support clinical program decision-making for promising compounds in its diabetes pipeline. This is the second license Pharsight has sold for its diabetes meta-database.

Pharsight's meta-database for Type II Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM) captures clinical efficacy and safety measures from 106 clinical trials, including multiple drug classes and comparative treatments and more than 30 clinical endpoints.

Pharsight has assembled a team of clinical database and clinical pharmacy experts dedicated to extracting information from the public domain and transforming this information into model-ready datasets. These datasets are used by biopharmaceutical companies and Pharsight scientific consultants to answer a variety of drug development questions. Pharsight offers public-source meta-databases in nine therapeutic areas, covering 20 disease indications. Additional information is available at

"Pharsight is pleased that another leading pharmaceutical company has elected to use our meta-database to enable objective comparisons of drug effects for its diabetes programs," said Shawn O'Connor, president, chief executive officer and chairman of Pharsight. "Using public domain data extracted from the scientific literature to build predictive models of the competitive landscape provides a quantitative means for understanding the clinical potential of a drug candidate and earlier assessment of its' competitive viability. Pharsight systematically compiles public-source clinical databases, many in high-prevalence disease areas, with a deliberate focus to enable knowledge sharing and efficient drug-disease modeling to support our client's critical drug development decisions."
