Miami, Florida, May 2, 2018 — ArisGlobal, a leading provider of integrated cloud-based software solutions for life sciences, announced that the China FDA, Center of Drug Evaluation has selected and implemented LifeSphere® Safety MultiVigilance (also known as ARISc) solution for clinical safety and pharmacovigilance (PV) through its local partner. Two contract research organizations (CROs) – DeltaMed Co. Ltd and R&G PharmaStudies have also chosen LifeSphere Safety MultiVigilance as their Safety/PV solution platform to support pharmaceutical companies in China.
Recently, CFDA was reorganized into new State Drug Administration (SDA) and one of the mandates is to implement a system to enforce manufacturer compliance of adverse events.
“We are glad to announce that CFDA or SDA is the ninth national health authority that has selected ArisGlobal as their safety technology solution provider,” said Sankesh Abbhi, President & CEO of ArisGlobal. “We are very pleased to support Center for Drug Evaluation with LifeSphere Safety MultiVigilance (ARISc) and we look forward to supporting all our customers and partners in China to help them comply with the new CFDA regulations for reporting safety data from clinical trials.”

- Localized cloud service provided to meet regulatory requirements
- A single database with multi-lingual capabilities, including Chinese, English and Japanese
