PharmaPros Announces Licensing Agreement With Biogen Idec for Dataflow Manager™

License Includes Unlimited Users & Studies for 3 Years

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2011) - PharmaPros Corporation, a technology solutions provider specializing in data and workflow management for clinical trials, today announced that Biogen Idec, a leading biotechnology company, has signed a three year enterprise license for PharmaPros' automated study management solution, Dataflow Manager. The deal includes unlimited studies, and unlimited users for the duration of the license.

Biogen Idec's initial implementation of Dataflow Manager consisted of four (4) in-progress Phase III clinical trials that spanned 36 countries, with more than 5000 patients and 300 sites, using outsourced service providers for global monitoring and data management. Dataflow Manager provided immediate visibility into the progress of the on-going studies, delivering real-time analytics on very large data sets including more than 300,000 forms per study, and one million lab records.

PharmaPros' proprietary Enterprise Adapter™, a universal web-services adapter, was deployed to enable web services integration with in-house eClinical sources such as Oracle Clinical™ CDMS and RDC, TrialManager™ CTMS, ISI CRFTrack, ALMAC/UBC IVR and central/specialty labs. Automated data loading is also used for information coming from outsourced service providers, such as monitoring logs, and independent safety reporting.

"This is an exciting opportunity for PharmaPros, and our product. The initial implementation with Biogen Idec allowed us to test and prove that Dataflow Manager can scale to large, complex clinical trials with very challenging study management criteria, and that both our cloud computing and SaaS delivery model work for clinical trials of any size," said Nick Neri, Vice President of Technology at PharmaPros.

Recently awarded the Society for Clinical Data Management's Data Driven Innovation Award, and the Kinetic Process Innovation Award, Dataflow Manager is being recognized as the first commercially available product of its kind in the life sciences industry.
