Number Of Clinical Trials : 1,578


In the development of new medicines, clinical trials are conducted to prove therapeutic safety and effectiveness and compile the evidence needed for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve treatments.

"Clinical trials are a key research tool for advancing medical knowledge and patient care. They also are an economic driver, not only to the regions where they are performed, but also nationally and globally. Additionally, clinical trial results can help health care decision- makers direct resources to the strategies and treatments that work best and are safe. Patients from minority populations should be adequately represented in clinical trials since treatments affect a range of patient groups differently."

Russell E. Poland, Ph.D. Vice President for Research Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Meharry Medical College

    Total Economic Impact Of Clinical Trial Investments

It takes about 10 years to develop one new medicine. Clinical trials are the most time- and resource-intensive part of the research and development (R&D) process for a new medicine, and biopharmaceutical companies support and conduct the lion’s share of this work. Yet without clinical trials, new medicines could not be approved and made available to the patients who need them.

Beyond the profound value that biopharmaceutical industry R&D brings patients in the form of new treatments and potential cures for society’s most devastating and costly diseases are the significant economic impacts resulting from clinical trials conducted in communities across the country.*

* The data presented here focuses solely on investments at clinical trial sites, which are only a portion of the full economic impact of R&D supported by the biopharmaceutical industry. In addition to excluding pre-discovery and preclinical research and other activities related to trial design, management coordination, and analysis, as well as any other activities occurring beyond the operations at the site level, were beyond the scope of this research. The report also excludes the large nationwide economic impact associated with non-R&D activities, including manufacturing and distribution.
