Novotech and CNS deal expands CRO services for Biopharma Clients across Asia-Pacific
Asia-Pacific CRO Novotech has acquired Australasian specialist CRO Clinical Network Services (CNS), with a mutual mission to expand services

SYDNEY, Oct 19, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Novotech, the largest Asia-Pacific-based CRO, has acquired Australasian specialist CRO Clinical Network Services (CNS), as part of a mutual mission to expand services to biopharma for early phase product development and clinical research through to later phase regional and global trials. Both companies will continue to retain their separate brands and identities.

Early phase CNS clients, wishing to advance into later phase regional trials, can tap into Novotech's Asia-Pacific expertise backed by 10 partnership agreements with leading hospitals and medical institutions, offering access to 1.4 billion people living in urban areas across the region. Novotech has 400+ staff across Asia-Pacific and business development offices in the USA. CNS has more than 140 staff in Australia, New Zealand and the USA.

As part of the deal, clients can access leading services from both groups, including the CNS BioDesk, which provides early stage product development advice including toxicology, CMC and FDA/EMA regulatory consulting and interactions; and Novotech's advanced regional IT infrastructure, to support their clinical research programs.

Novotech CEO John Moller said:

"Biopharma clients should know this acquisition is a bringing together of the highest quality CROs in the region. Very importantly, we have developed remarkably similar company cultures, and I know the teams are excited about the opportunity of working together.

"Novotech and CNS will continue to operate under separate brands with CNS specialising in early phase non-oncology clinical trials across Australia and New Zealand, and Novotech specialising in regional Asia-Pacific and global project delivery across all phases.

"Our Asia-Pacific in-country relationships enable a comprehensive understanding of local regulatory requirements and changes, access to leading investigators, strong site connections, and accessible patient populations to deliver success for our clients within timelines and budgets."

CNS Managing Director Russ Neal commented:

"Early phase research in Australasia has seen incredible growth over the last 6-7 years and CNS is proud to be a significant part of this proven capability. As our clients have experienced success with us, we have often wished we had the international reach to continue supporting them.

"This truly complimentary association with Novotech now means that we are able to offer our clients access to Novotech's Asia-Pacific experience and expertise in later phase regional or global trials. On the other hand, Novotech clients can access our highly regarded global product development and regulatory affairs consultancy team, BioDesk, based out of Washington DC, London and Australia"

CNS COO and Executive Director Gabrielle McKee further added:

"CNS clients will also benefit from many of Novotech's strengths, including IT infrastructure and specialist functions such as legal, learning and development, marketing and analytics,. and particularly exciting, CNS and Novotech offer our clients one of the most experienced and knowledgeable biometrics teams in the region, with 70 staff in the combined unit."
