GlobalData has reviewed the location of global clinical trials in the immuno-oncology (IO) space that were initiated between 2008 and 2017. During this period, single-country trials greatly outnumbered multinational IO clinical trials. Their relative contribution fluctuated between 72% and 87%, as shown in Figure 1. Over the 10-year period, there were 3.9 times as many single-country trials as multinational trials, and 95% of non-industry trials were conducted in single countries. A relatively high number of multinational trials were seen in 2014 and 2015, which is consistent with the higher number of industry-sponsored trials in these two years.
