                CRID PHARMA

                Saint Gely du Fesc (France) – CRID PHARMA, the French leader in CMC
                development and clinical supplies, is proud to announce a partnership with CSM
                (Clinical Supplies Management), a leading supplier of innovative clinical trial
                services, to biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies.
                With a combined 34 years of providing clinical supply services, the partnership
                brings two companies together looking to broaden their expertise and address a
                growing customer demand. The companies will share resources and assist one
                another with global distribution allowing clients to expand their clinical trials.
                Jean-Pascal Conduzorgues, Chief Executive Officer of CRID PHARMA, said “We
                have found a forward-thinking partner in CSM. CRID PHARMA’s growing business
                with the US biotechs and pharmaceutical companies interested in clinical trials in
                Europe will be comforted by this partnership.”
                “CRID PHARMA’s European clients will find an excellent level of competence
                and quality in North America with the help of CSM.”

                Jean-Pascal Conduzorgues also explained “We will offer competitive technologies
                from CMC development and On-Demand distribution through manufacturing
                capacities dedicated to clinical trials.” Gerald Finken, Chief Executive Officer of
                CSM, says the commitment to providing expert clinical trial solutions to reduce time
                and costs is the driving force behind the partnership.
                “This is a unique partnership, one that will be transparent to the client,” Finken said.
                “This allows us to double our service capabilities and ultimately provide On-Demand
                packaging and labeling in Europe.” Finken also states that they have found a
                company with the same integrity and stability as CSM and that he is excited to see the
                synergistic effects of the two companies coming together.
                “Even though a study becomes more complex when it goes International, working
                with CRID and using On-Demand in Europe will allow us to continue to ‘Make
                Trials Less Trying’ for our clients.”

                Quality is imperative when performing clinical trials overseas, and both
                companies have spent time and resources reviewing each others’ processes to
                ensure a seamless working relationship.
