HORSHAM, Pa.--()--Reed Technology and Information Services Inc. (Reed Tech), part of the LexisNexis® family, is pleased to announce it has been awarded a contract with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to convert prescription drug labeling from its current format to the Physician Labeling Rule (PLR) format.

The estimated contract value is $26 million over the five year period.

Reed Tech has carefully assembled a uniquely qualified, multi-disciplinary team of medical, pharmaceutical and labeling experts with significant experience in all of the areas sought by the FDA for this initiative.
