Thomson Scientific Extends Online Learning Opportunities For Regulatory Training


Three New Modules Help to Optimize Success in Regulatory Affairs

Philadelphia, PA USA, London UK, 10/05/2006, Thomson Scientific, part of The Thomson Corporation (NYSE: TOC; TSX: TOC) and leading provider of information solutions to the worldwide research and business communities, today announced an expansion of its Regulatory Online Learning for expert regulatory training, provided by IDRAC®.

Recognized by regulatory professionals as the leading authority in global regulatory intelligence, IDRAC has introduced three new Regulatory Online Learning modules to help optimize success:
# Introduction to ICH (International Conference on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use)
# How to prepare for an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) Advisory Committee meeting
# Orphan drugs in Europe, USA and Japan

“The first five modules released earlier this year generated great interest” said Claude Basset, managing director of IDRAC, Thomson Scientific. “Industry resources indicate there is currently a shortage of knowledgeable regulatory affairs professionals, and Regulatory Online Learning can help close this skills gap. Customers know they can trust our expertise and appreciate the flexibility of the modular approach”.

The Regulatory Online Learning modules cater to three levels: Introductory, Practical and Strategic. Users can choose either to follow the entire course as a complete guide to regulatory affairs, or select modules to meet their specific training needs. Each module provides expert instruction and is continually updated to reflect the latest developments. An e-Testing capability is also available to assess knowledge acquired after each module.

Six additional Regulatory Online Learning modules are scheduled for launch later this year, with further modules planned for 2007.
