The Cytel Story - Advancing the State of Clinical Development

Cytel was founded in 1987 by Cyrus Mehta and Nitin Patel, both Fellows of the American Statistical Association, and both active with the company. The company is led by senior people with extensive experience in clinical development and expertise in biostatistics, operations research, SAS programming, medical writing, data management and software development.

We work hard to create successful careers with significant professional growth for our employees, as a result of which they work hard to make Cytel successful. This, in turn, enables us to make sure our customers are highly satisfied with our software and our services. Our people know we mean it when we say that the customer comes first and profits second. Our customers know it, too.

We take pride that our software for the design and analysis of clinical trials – East®, Compass®, StatXact®, LogXact® - is the industry standard and used also by the FDA. Our products are known for their user-friendliness, detailed manuals, and thorough validation and testing.

We also take pride that our services customers regard us as partners. Our style of working is collaborative, and our goal is to make them successful by being scientific, rigorous, and thoughtful.

Our USA, European and India teams have developed a well-integrated way to work on both software and services. As a result, we do work to the highest standards of quality at a cost significantly lower than our competition.

Cytel is a place where talent, experience and integrity come together to advance the state of clinical development.
