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."

Verdant Minerals Ltd (ASX:VRM) has completed the environmental impact assessment process for its Ammaroo Phosphate Project in the Northern Territory. The company received approval of the project’s environmental impact assessment report from the Northern Territory Environment Protection Authority (NTEPA), marking the end of the environmental permitting process. Verdant is now focused on finalising native title mining agreements as well as obtaining mineral lease grants ahead of securing project development funding. Verdant managing director Chris Tziolis said this was a major milestone for the company and the Ammaroo project. He said: “The completion of the assessment process by the NTEPA provides Verdant with the regulatory baseline required to move the Ammaroo Project towards final mining authorisations and the attainment of statutory licences. “This marks the end of the most rigorous part of the approval and permitting process. “We will also now move on with the implementation and financing stage of the project, progressing toward a final investment decision.” READ: Verdant Minerals continues to progress Australia’s largest phosphate resource Ammaroo had already received Federal Government approval under the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act, as announced in June. The NTEPA has made further recommendations to inform the next phase of mining authorisation under the Northern Territory's Mining Management Act. It said that the proposal could be managed in a manner likely to meet NTEPA objectives and would avoid significant or unacceptable environmental impacts and risks. Overview of the environmental assessment and project authorisation process READ: Verdant Minerals progressing environmental impact assessment for Ammaroo Phosphate Project The company has completed a feasibility study for producing an initial 1 million tonnes per annum of phosphate rock concentrate, followed by a subsequent expansion to 2 million tonnes after year five. Ammaroo contains ultra-low cadmium rock, ideally suited as feedstock to produce phosphoric acid. The resource is shallow, free-digging, moderate grade phosphate ore resulting in very low mining costs. Verdant has developed a mine plan for 20 years of mining utilising less than 10% of the known resource. This is likely to expand to 50-plus years of operation. The regional exploration potential is significant and may underpin a major phosphate province.
