TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced that Ben McGraw, director of life science industry solutions, TIBCO Spotfire®, will be presenting at a symposium in China aimed at advancing the country's research and development efforts in clinical and laboratory practices through information technology. Hosted by Neotrident, a life sciences technology leader in China, the event titled "Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) in Information Management and Data Management Systems" will take place on May 23-24, 2011 in Hangzhou, China.

What: In his presentation titled "TIBCO Spotfire for In Stream Safety Review and Post-Marketing Surveillance," Mr. McGraw will discuss the importance of predictive analytics in assessing drug safety data. While a large amount of safety data is collected in clinical trials and in post-marketing studies, basic information, such as which types of patients have adverse events and which adverse events and lab elevations are treatment-related, is often not well understood. Statistical and graphical analyses of safety data in Spotfire's interactive visualization environment will be presented to offer a detailed clinical review of sub-populations and patient-level data. Mr. McGraw will also outline how researchers, clinicians, safety officers and others can use their analyses for clinical study reports, drug and safety monitoring and advisory board meetings, and in post-marketing safety assessments.

When/Where: Mr. McGraw will be presenting on May 24, 2011 at 11:10 a.m. local time at the Hyatt Regency Hangzhou Hotel in Hangzhou, People's Republic of China.
