The certification covers single-dose and multiple-dose toxicology studies in both rodents and non-rodents, GeneTox studies (Ames, micronucleus, and chromosome aberration), and toxicokinetic studies.  WuXi qualified for this certification as a result of SFDA review of its management, personnel, test facilities, standard operating procedures, and study operations.  Receipt of this certification is necessary in order to perform toxicology studies to be filed in Investigational New Drug (IND) applications with the SFDA.

In September, WuXi announced that the Suzhou facility had received GLP certification from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.  WuXi's Suzhou facility is the only toxicology facility in China to have received certification from both the SFDA and OECD.

"This certificate from the SFDA is an important milestone in offering our clients toxicology studies that meet both domestic and international GLP quality standards for filing INDs both in China and other countries," said Dr. Ge Li, chairman and CEO of WuXi PharmaTech.  "With this award, WuXi moves a step closer to achieving its goal of offering our pharmaceutical and biotech clients a comprehensive, fully integrated platform of pharmaceutical R&D services."
