The following is a list of the top 100 biotechnology companies ranked by revenue. The first nine companies qualify for the list of the top 50 pharmaceutical companies. bring drugs to market faster by assisting in the design of more efficient and cost-effective drug clinical trials. Industry experts estimate that delays in regulatory approval cost $1 to 2 million per day in lost revenues to pharmaceutical companies. Pharsight's enhanced software can dramatically improve the efficiency of clinical trials, the longest and most expensive stage of drug development.
Currently, 16 of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies and five of the top 11 biotechnology companies use Pharsight's modeling and design technology in their clinical development efforts. In addition, nine of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies utilize Pharsight's consulting services.
Pharsight Trial Designer 1.2 is compatible with version 6.12 of SAS (1) (SAS Institute Inc., Cary, NC, www.sas.com) A software company that specializes in data warehousing and decision support software based on the SAS System. Founded in 1976, SAS is one of the world's largest privately held software companies. See SAS System. (R) software for Windows. Pharsight's collaboration with SAS Institute allows developers to streamline the process of planning a trial by facilitating visualization Using the computer to convert data into picture form. The most basic visualization is that of turning transaction data and summary information into charts and graphs. Visualization is used in computer-aided design (CAD) to render screen images into 3D models that can be viewed from all and analysis of simulated trial data. Pharsight Trial Designer 1.2's new SAS software user interface makes it easier for developers to run more powerful predictive functions such as survival analysis within the SAS software.
Survival analysis forecasts the effect of a drug on a human population. It estimates how the rate of these effects will compare to the normal rate without the influence of the experimental drug. Functioning as a facilitator to the SAS software, Pharsight Trial Designer 1.2 allows clinical development teams to transfer data into SAS software for survival analysis, and return to Pharsight Trial Designer's interactive format to review the analysis. By conducting survival analysis, drug developers gain access to key information about possible treatment outcomes, allowing them to plan a more effective clinical trial.
