CAC EXICARE Corporation (EXICARE), a leading Japanese Contract Research Organization, today announced a partnership with Business & Decision Life Sciences (BDLS), a Contract Research Organization (CRO) specializing in CDISC Data Standards implementation, conversion and governance, headquartered in Brussels, Belgium.
This partnership enhances EXICARE's ability to support Japanese pharmaceutical companies prepare for the PMDA mandating CDISC data sets as part of all drug submissions from 2016 onwards.
EXICARE selected BDLS as its CDISC knowledge partner due to BDLS' eight years of experience in converting and the management of CDISC data in over 650 studies across more than 90 drug submissions.
"EXICARE has a well-deserved reputation for outstanding customer care and commitment to quality." said Peter Van Reusel, Chief Operating Officer at BDLS. "The partnership is a very positive move for both companies and will allow BDLS and EXICARE to enhance and develop the services we are able to offer to Japanese pharma companies."
Over the last eight years, BDLS has built a tried-and-tested methodology for converting clinical data into CDISC data standards built upon a SAS Data Integration Studio platform which delivers validated CDISC- compliant data sets that can be included in regulatory submissions. This partnership will allow EXICARE to leverage this experience.
"Business & Decision Life Sciences has a long history of providing excellent service and quality to sponsors and is viewed as a leader in CDISC data standards," said Koji Iwamoto, General Manager at BTO Department II, EXICARE. "With this partnership, we look forward to working with BDLS to strengthen EXICARE's ability to provide industry knowledge, advice and quality services to our client base."
