Mr. Tyson explained, "We have assembled a team comprised of some of the foremost scientific professionals in the industry. As part of our ongoing mission to engineer a better drug development process, we previously implemented a service performance initiative that drives every level of our organization. Today, Aptuit people are joining their 'heads for science' and their 'hearts for service' to continue to provide scientific excellence and a level of service that goes above and beyond what has come to be the industry standard."

Early to mid-phase services
Aptuit's early to mid-phase development services include Drug Design and Discovery, Solid State Chemistry, Preclinical Biosciences, API Development and Manufacture, Solid, Oral and Sterile Dosage Formulation, Clinical Sciences, Consulting Services and Aptuit INDiGO™, our proprietary program for fast track IND submission. Mr. Tyson noted Aptuit's best in class position in several of these key development areas, specifically citing the company's solid state chemistry, high potency API, accelerated development and lead optimization capabilities. 

Integrated or stand alone services
Stuart E. Needleman, President, Aptuit Scientific Operations, stressed that Aptuit has a team of scientific professionals in place who speak the client's language. He explained that they have extensive experience in working with multinational clients and emerging biotechs, and a track record for delivering on time and in full. "We thoroughly understand that business goals and scientific objectives vary greatly from client to client. That's why we are flexible in offering our clients an Integrated Service Package, consisting of all-inclusive early to mid-phase development services from a single Aptuit location, or stand alone services that are tailored to precisely meet their unique requirements," said Mr. Needleman.

The global scientific team led by a new CSO
The appointment of a Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) was cited as an example of the company's focus on scientific excellence. Mr. Needleman said, "The recent appointment of Dr. Jan-Olav Henck, a world renowned solid state chemist with significant industry experience, is another indication of how Aptuit customers benefit from the leadership and collaboration of some of the industry's most distinguished and experienced scientific minds." He further explained that while Aptuit scientists offer drug development expertise across all therapeutic areas, the company includes technical teams of scientific medical specialists who are focused on diseases and therapies that drive the current market, including neuroscience, cardiovascular, oncology and infectious disease.

In discussing Aptuit's strategically positioned global resources, Mr. Needleman cited Aptuit's world class drug design and optimization facility in Verona, Italy. "While the special strengths of some of our individual global facilities such as Verona are a decided advantage, we are a capability-centric organization: we focus on our client's needs," said Mr. Needleman. He added that all sites adhere to the same high quality standards of regulatory compliance.

In conclusion, Mr. Tyson said, "Aptuit continues to be a world-leading pharmaceutical services company, well-positioned for the dynamic growth projected in this market.  We plan to invest for growth, continue our passion for scientific excellence and deliver on exceptional customer service."
