West Lebanon, NH (PRWEB) January 6, 2009
M2S Inc., a global provider of image management services for biopharmaceutical and medical device clinical trials, announced today that the company has acquired DXA Resource Group (DRG) of Westborough, Mass.
Founded in 2002, DRG recognized the need for cost-effective and responsive DXA (Dual- Emission X-Ray Absorptiometry) clinical quality assurance, project management and data management services to support drug development. DXA, a low-dose (1/10th of traditional x-ray) imaging modality that measures bone mineral density and body mass composition, is increasingly utilized in clinical trials to assess the safety and effectiveness of drugs under development for indications such as osteoporosis, HIV, obesity, growth hormone deficiency, endometriosis, fibroids and Gaucher's disease.
"DRG has integrated quality service with imaging data technology, which exactly fits into the M2S mission and clinical trials image management service offering. The addition of DRG allows M2S to further expand our capabilities and therapeutic expertise, and meet the growing demand for image management services worldwide," M2S CEO Wes Chapman said.
"Adding M2S high-speed image collection and trial management technologies to DRG's proprietary quality system and data management, enables us to greatly increase our presence in the drug development market," said Reta Rupich, President of DXA Resource Group.
