Xythos Software announced that it has signed a global OEM agreement with SAS. SAS will use the WebDAV-based Xythos WebFile Server (WFS) as the file management platform for SAS Drug Development and provide it to customers in the pharmaceutical, biomedical and medical device industries. With Xythos, SAS customers will use the Internet to securely access, manage, process and share all biopharmaceutical research data, analyses, reports and documents in the system. The integrated Xythos and SAS Drug Development solution helps close the gaps in the clinical development process by aggregating research data and documents from multiple, disparate sources and providing analytical and exploratory applications within a 21 CFR Part 11-enabling infrastructure. This provides researchers with a single, secure, centralized information repository where research information can be organized for regulatory submission and mined for new market opportunities, product line extensions or strategic safety assessments. www/xythos.com
