MUNICH, Germany--()--XClinical, a European vendor of innovative software products for eClinical trials and well known for MARVIN, one of the first CDISC certified EDC software solutions, today announced its comprehensive participation at the CDISC European Interchange to be held on April 21-25, 2008, at The Marriott Hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark.

XClinicals CEO, Dr. Philippe Verplancke, has been invited to present a lecture focused on "Experience with SDTM value level metadata in investigator centered EDC and CDASH". Dr. Verplancke will not only share valuable insights with respect to the progress of CDISC data standards, but will further answer the question of how clinical data standardization can be made compatible with an EDC vendors main goal of providing a user-friendly EDC system for clinical trials.

In addition, XClinical will participate in the CDISC End-to-End workshop CORE (CDISC Operational Roadmap Environment). The workshop is an important additional project to further drive the adoption of common standards across the industry worldwide by showing the platform and system independency of the CDISC standard models. Dr. Lindenau, XClinicals head of business development, will contribute to the upcoming event in Copenhagen: The industry has already made moves towards end-to-end processing with the CDISC data model for common standards in clinical trials, hence, as an EDC software provider, XClinical has a strong commitment to this concept.

To further advance the mission of the consortium with respect to the development and dissemination of standard data models throughout the industry, CDISC has recently developed specialized training programs. The goals of these programs are to provide training and education on the theory and practice of using the CDISC standards and to provide the tools and information needed to implement these within organizations. As a recognized expert in CDISC standards, Dr. Verplancke will host 7 official training sessions, organized by CDISC around the globe in 2008, dealing with the advantages of XML use in data acquisition, data exchange, and data transfer. Our goal is the fast accreditation and use of these standards throughout the industry, and the adoption of them by regulatory authorities, said Dr. Verplancke, who replaces the former official trainer Dave Iberson-Hurst who has been selected as Vice President for CDISC, recently.

XClinicals executives can be reached personally during the event at Booth No. 9.
