The average cost of bringing a new drug to market continues to rise, with varying levels of investments across the highly competitive biopharmaceutical industry. To assess the potential effect of varying investments on trial activity and operations, this article reviews trial benchmarks within the active oncology therapeutic area. Industry-sponsored clinical trials across all oncology indications covered by Informa Pharma Intelligence’s Trialtrove were assessed, comparing metrics by company size based on pharma sales, and the identical benchmarks for breast cancer and rare cancers were also analyzed.
As Informa Pharma Intelligence has done for the past three years, this analysis examines the landscape of industry-sponsored clinical trials completed during 2017, of which there were a total of 3,534 Phase I through Phase III/IV. The nearly 700 trials terminated in 2017 were not included in this analysis.
