Provides Unprecedented Access to Detailed Drug Pharmacokinetics Data and Over 1,000,000 Extracted Exposure Observations From the FDA and EMEA Documents on More Than 2,100 Drugs

NEW YORK, September 14, 2010 - Elsevier today announces that it has significantly increased its service
offering to pharmaceutical R&D professionals with the launch of a new
Pharmacokinetics Module of PharmaPendium(TM), the online resource for
authoritative drug development data. The Pharmacokinetics Module allows
pharmacokineticists (and related professionals in regulatory affairs,
preclinical, safety pharmacology, etc.) to access multiple exposure parameter
measurements under various experimental conditions for over 2,100 drugs,
enabling the retrieval and analysis of over 1,000,000 pharmacokinetic

"The new Pharmacokinetics Module is not only a faster and more efficient
way to search pharmacokinetics data, it is the only place to find this level
of comparative exposure information, great for modeling and comparing
therapeutic windows earlier in the development process", said Philip
, Senior Product Manager at Elsevier. "This is a level of
information that stands alone as a resource for Pharmacokinetics data, as it
can save months of work."

With the Pharmacokinetics Module, R&D professionals can model therapeutic
windows faster and more accurately than previously possible and discover
which preclinical experimental data is predictive of human response, which is
not, and why. Users will have the ability to filter comparative data sets for
decision support according to a wide variety of fields and special
designations, including drug name, species, disease state, food effects,
concomitant drugs, route, and exposure parameter.

The PharmaPendium(TM) module is available exclusively to existing
PharmaPendium(TM) customers. Purchase options include annual subscription or
data purchase (with annual maintenance fee).
