The Asia Pacific has seen a 100% growth in oncology trials during 2017 to 2021 and contributes to more than a third of the global clinical development of immune-oncology drugs.

“By the end of 2021 40% of active immuno-oncology clinical trials involved at least one location in the Asia-Pacific region, with the majority of trials conducted in China, followed by Australia, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan,” according to GlobaData.

The latest data shows Asia Pacific is also the fastest-growing region globally for cell & gene therapy trials representing more than a third of all cell & gene studies, with China leading in the region. Oncology accounts for the majority of cell & gene therapy trials.

In addition, the Asia Pacific is the leading location globally for CAR-T trials with China attracting ~60% of all CAR-T trials globally between 2015-2022.
