On Wednesday, BIO released the largest ever study of clinical development success rates. The study, conducted in partnership with Amplion and Biomedtracker, recorded and analyzed 9,985 clinical and regulatory phase transitions, across 1,103 companies. Using clinical trial data from the past decade, “Clinical Development Success Rates 2006-2015” compares groups of diseases, drug modalities and other attributes to generate the most comprehensive analysis, to date, of biopharmaceutical R&D success.
“This study provides a wealth of information about drug development success rates across a broad range of indications,” said Cartier Esham, PhD, BIO’s Executive Vice President, Emerging Companies. “The results may be used to pinpoint disease areas and phases of development where the industry has been most successful in recent years, as well as areas presenting challenges along the capital intensive-pathway of drug development.”
