When analysing these disrupted trials by therapy area, oncology leads all others in disrupted clinical trials due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Phase II has the most oncology disrupted clinical trials, followed by Phase I and then Phase III. A further breakdown can be seen in Figure 2. Furthermore, when looking at the region, North America outnumbered all other regions in disrupted clinical trials in both multinational and single-country trials. Europe was second in both, followed by Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa and South and Central America (Figure 3).
