REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2010) -

Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL)

News Facts

  • Keyrus Biopharma, a contract research organization operating in Europe and part of the Keyrus Group, has standardized on Oracle® Clinical and Oracle Database to help increase efficiency in clinical trial data collection, improve data quality and security, and support the organization's European expansion plans.
  • With Oracle Clinical, Keyrus Biopharma has gained greater flexibility in designing clinical trials and managing data collection, as well as increased scalability to support business expansion.
  • The solution provides comprehensive data validation capabilities -- through a library of reusable procedures based on Clinical Data Acquisition Standards Harmonization (CDash) and Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) Study Data Tabulation Model (SDTM) standards -- that help Keyrus Biopharma to improve the efficiency of data collection and validation, and reduce the time to database lock.
  • Keyrus Biopharma is streamlining compliance and increasing security with Oracle Clinical's robust audit trail capabilities and support for 21 CFR Part 11.
  • Oracle's strength and stability as a leading provider of IT solutions for the health sciences sector and Oracle Clinical's broad functionality were key factors in Keyrus Biopharma's selection process.
  • Keyrus Biopharma worked with Pharmasol, an Oracle Gold Partner, and used Pharmasol RapidLive -- an Oracle Accelerate solution that provides ready-to-use implementations of Oracle Health Sciences applications -- to accelerate the deployment cycle.
