LONDON, July 6, 2011 -

Chiltern International Limited (Chiltern), a global clinical
contract research organization (CRO), announced that the company
has established a new legal entity in Israel.

“Chiltern has experienced a healthy number of requests from our
clients in this region and forming a legal entity is a natural
progression to our work there,” commented Armand Czaplinski,
Chiltern’s Executive Director, Global Country Management, who will
be leading the effort in Israel. “Israel is an attractive location
to conduct clinical trials as it has many key opinion leaders (KOL)
in clinical research and outstanding quality of research. Israel
has some of the most skilled and educated work forces with the
highest number of doctors, scientists and engineers per capita than
any other country. Another key advantage is that the majority of
Israel’s population belongs to the same health maintenance
organization and this facilitates quick start for clinical trials
and reduces the overall project timelines.”

Glenn Kerkhof, Chiltern CEO, stated, “We are delighted to
add Israel to our established global footprint to better serve our
clients. It is essential for Chiltern to have operations in Israel
to tap into the renowned clinical research expertise, experienced
investigators and key opinion leaders available in this
