Globalization of Industry-Sponsored Clinical Trials.


 Author: Johan PE Karlberg. Published in 2014.

Summary: This report represents an in-depth analysis of all Phase II/III industry-sponsored clinical trials registered in the US trial Registry, initiated between July 2006 to June 2013. The number of such trials has been fairly constant over the seven years of observation, with an annual average of 2,000 trials, providing 60,000 new study sites and close to 800,000 participants annually. North America and the European continent contribute 81.4 percent of all sites, leaving only a relative small portion for the rest of the world to compete for. We may also conclude that the globalization of industry-sponsored clinical trials has partially or fully halted.

Global Clinical Trial Trends: Therapeutic Area Winners and Losers.


Author: Johan PE Karlberg. Published in 2014.

Summary: The objective of this report is to define the overall trends for the most important diseases under clinical testing. Most of the top six therapeutic areas showed a decrease in the proportion of the number of Phase II/III trials from the first two-year period to the last two-year period. Diseases with positive trends are hepatitis C, arthritis/gout, asthma, COPD and psoriasis, constipation, and kidney failure. Diseases with negative trends are breast cancer, hypertension, anemia, migraine/headache, obesity, insomnia/sleep, osteoporosis, coronary/ischemia, cardiomyopathy/failure, incontinence, thrombosis/coagulation, ADHD, renal cancer and arrhythmia/fibrillation.

Guide to Global Clinical Trial Inspection Trends.


Author: Johan PE Karlberg. Published in 2013.
Summary: This study shows that clinical investigator inspection outcomes have improved significantly during the past three decades. However, there are two deficiency codes related to the clinical investigator’s responsibility that have not shown any improvement: study protocol adherence and study record validity. The size of those two deficiencies is not small; one in every four clinical investigators has been flagged for maintaining inadequate and inaccurate records, while one in every three investigators was identified as having failed to follow the investigational plan.
