Redwood Shores, CA – November 3, 2008
· CTI<http://www.ctifacts.com/> Clinical Trial and Consulting Services (CTI)<http://www.ctifacts.com/> is upgrading and expanding its use of Oracle applications for clinical development to support the company’s continued growth in the U.S. and global markets.
· CTI, a specialty drug and market development company based in Cincinnati, Ohio, has recently upgraded to the newest releases of Oracle® Clinical<http://www.oracle.com/industries/life_sciences/oracle-clinical-data-sheet.pdf> and Oracle Adverse Event Reporting System<http://www.oracle.com/industries/life_sciences/aers45_datasheet.pdf>.
· The company is also upgrading to Oracle Remote Data Capture 4.5.3<http://www.oracle.com/industries/life_sciences/rdc-onsite-datasheet.pdf>, Oracle’s electronic data capture (EDC) solution, to leverage new functionality designed to meet the needs of trial sponsors and investigative site personnel, including the product’s zero-client footprint that enables improved global access.
· The growing company, which serves more than 50 biotech and pharmaceutical organizations globally is expanding its Oracle footprint with the deployment of Oracle Clinical Trial Management System<http://www.oracle.com/applications/crm/siebel/resources/siebel-lifescience-clinical-trial-management-system-data-sheet.pdf>, moving from a system developed in house to a best-of-breed solution that provides greater scalability and flexibility in managing all aspects of clinical study planning, preparation, performance and reporting.
· The company focuses on developing therapies targeting very ill patients. The clinical trial process for such drugs often requires more frequent, extensive and rapid reporting to a trial’s Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB), an independent body responsible for assessing a study and its risk.
· With Oracle Clinical and Oracle Remote Data Capture, CTI can quickly deliver data to a DSMB or regulatory agencies, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), without the need to key in information from paper case report forms (CRFs) – a process that is time consuming and presents opportunities for data entry error.
· CTI conducts approximately 60 percent of its trials using EDC technology.
· The 10-year old company invested in industry-leading Oracle Clinical applications at its inception to help credential it in the market.
