Agility-PSR Wins "Best Contract Research Organization" in the 2013 ROAR Awards at the 4th Annual World Orphan Drug Conference in Geneva

CARLSBAD, Calif., Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Agility-PSR – the partnership between Agility Clinical, Inc., a Carlsbad-based specialty consulting and clinical research organization (CRO), and PSR Orphan Experts, a European orphan drug specialty consulting and clinical research company – has been awarded "Best Contract Research Organization" in the 2013 Rare and Orphan Advocacy and Research (ROAR) Awards.

The ROAR Awards were announced during the 4th Annual World Orphan Drug Congress Europe, November 14-15, 2013, in Geneva, Switzerland. The inaugural 2013 awards honor achievements by organizations and individuals from the pharmaceutical and device industry, as well as patient and rare disease advocacy communities.

"We established this partnership to strengthen our services and geographic reach for companies developing therapies for orphan products," says Ellen Morgan, CEO of Agility.  "Winning this award is evidence of the confidence our clients place in us and reflects our commitment to the highest standards of clinical research."

"Winning this award is an important acknowledgment for our pioneering work in the rare disease community over the last 5 years," says Roger Legtenberg, CEO of PSR Orphan Experts.  "As a unique specialized service provider, our way of integrating innovative regulatory & clinical approaches and reaching crucial milestones for our clients has been the basis for winning this award."

The term "orphan drug" refers to pharmaceutical products developed specifically to treat rare diseases, those affecting fewer than 200,000 Americans or less than one in 2,000 Europeans. Orphan drugs present fundamentally different regulatory and operational challenges compared to their traditional counterparts. Agility and PSR specialize in assisting companies in developing efficiencies and economies of scale to bring innovative orphan products to market, and to help patients and families affected by rare diseases.
