Phase II most common among immuno-oncology trials, 2008-2017

GlobalData has reviewed the phase of global clinical trials in the immuno-oncology (IO) space that were initiated between 2008 and 2017. For the purposes of this analysis, a small number of Phase 0, Phase I/II, Phase II/III, and Phase III/IV trials were combined with Phase I, Phase II, Phase III, and Phase IV trials, respectively.

GlobalData has reviewed the phase of global clinical trials in the immuno-oncology (IO) space that were initiated between 2008 and 2017. For the purposes of this analysis, a small number of Phase 0, Phase I/II, Phase II/III, and Phase III/IV trials were combined with Phase I, Phase II, Phase III, and Phase IV trials, respectively.

Overall, Phase II trials outnumbered all other phases by contributing 52%–62% across the period. The share of Phase I trials remained at around 31% across the 10-year period, as shown in Figure 1. Phase III trials’ contribution marginally increased from 7% to 9%, whereas Phase IV trials’ share remained flat at approximately 3%.

In absolute numbers, Phase III studies have grown faster than all other phases across the ten-year period, followed by Phase II, Phase I, and Phase IV. For multiple-year intervals, the growth in Phase III trials has been most prominent from 2013 onwards. Among Phase III, pivotal/registration studies have grown 15 times between 2008 and 2017. This shows that, in spite of the relatively low contribution of Phase III trials, interventions are increasingly progressing towards approval.
