Clinical Trial Continuity in Asia-Pacific during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Sites across the Asia-Pacific region have quickly changed how they manage trials, and most are able to deliver the clinical trial services their clients need. Biotech companies are currently initiating more clinical trials in Asia and Australia/New Zealand than in North America. During this briefing we will also discuss how:

  • The status of COVID 19 in the region and the factors that have driven the relatively low spread
  • Regulatory guidance and acceptability of remote monitoring and de-centralized clinical trials in Asia-Pacific
  • Risk management strategies
