SMB & Galephar Select Liquent Technology to Streamline Submission Publishing

    Insight Publisher Is Industry's Only eCTD Solution Built On Integrated
    Regulatory Information Management Platform

    PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, Sept. 5 /CNW/ -- Liquent, a Thomson business and
global leader in providing regulatory software solutions, information products
and related services for the life sciences industry, today announced that SMB
& Galephar has selected InSight Publisher to streamline its regulatory
platform. InSight Publisher is designed to accelerate the publishing process
for drug submissions to the world's regulatory authorities.
    InSight Publisher will enable SMB to create all the components of both
electronic and paper submissions from a single assembly structure, enhancing
efficiency and helping to bring new drugs to the market faster. InSight
Publisher is built on the same platform as InSight Manager which offers
sophisticated registration management and submission tracking capabilities and
the entire platform is adaptable to many different organizational processes
and designs, including centralized and decentralized publishing.
    "The constantly changing regulatory framework makes it more difficult
than ever to develop and register pharmaceutical products," said Philippe
Baudier, SMB's CEO. "We're confident that InSight Publisher will shorten our
time from finalized documents to the complete eCTD -- making complex
compliance simple and seamless."
    InSight Publisher also provides other new features to accelerate drug

    -- Step-by-step wizards for eCTDs and study reports help to streamline
       the creation of submissions and reports that comply with ICH,
       Japanese, Canadian, US and other regional specifications;

    -- The most complete eCTD Conformity Checking that automatically performs
       50 eCTD validation checks, including 32 ICH compliance requirements;

    -- Templating capabilities that let companies pre-define the structure of
       their content and the placement of paper publishing elements such as
       tabs, slip sheets and cover pages;

    -- An eCTD import wizard that helps organizations to continue their
       lifecycle management of previously completed eCTD submissions.

    "Liquent's InSight Publisher is the leading product in regulatory
publishing," said Jim Nichols, Liquent's vice president of Product Strategy
and Marketing. "Our one-of-a-kind technology is sure to save SMB critical time
throughout their publishing process."
