Advancing Oncology Clinical Trials in Asia-Pacific

A growing number of biotechnology companies are looking at the Asia-Pacific region to run their clinical trials in oncology. While Australia and New Zealand are preferred locations to run early phase trials, sponsors often look at Asia for large late phase clinical studies. Moreover, clinical trials are often the only channel through which patients can get access to new oncology treatments in Asia which ultimately stimulates patient recruitment rates. During this brief we will discuss:

  • The latest research and trends of oncology clinical trials globally and in Asia-Pacific
  • The reasons why oncology clinical research sites in Asia have been less affected by the COVID-19 crisis than in other regions
  • The benefit for biotechnology companies to involve sites in Asia-Pacific for oncology trials
  • Feedback from sponsors and investigators
