The leading Australian CRO for biotechs and Frost & Sullivan Asia-Pacific CRO Market Leadership Award recipient Avance Clinical announced the results of their Australian Clinical Trials Knowledge Survey with Endpoints News as part of their presence at BIO Digital 2021.
Results from the survey found:
– 21% were not aware Australian data is accepted by the FDA and other major regulatory authorities
– less than half of respondents were aware of Australia’s 43.5% rebate on clinical research spend
– only 52% knew that studies could achieve regulatory approval in under 5 weeks in Australia
The survey was sent to Endpoints News subscribers in biotech hubs on the USA east and west coasts.
The Avance Clinical team is attending BIO Digital 2021 virtually and is available on the BIO One-on-One Partnering(TM) platform to discuss the benefits of conducting trials in Australia.
Avance Clinical CEO Yvonne Lungershausen, said the survey was designed to determine awareness levels among biotech companies around the key benefits of conducting clinical trials in Australia. “Sponsors are well aware of the quality of research from Australia however it seems from the survey that some key benefits including data acceptance, the rebate, and accelerated regulatory approval are still not widely known,” said Yvonne Lungershausen. “The clinical trial environment in Australia supports rapid regulatory approval and includes one of the most attractive rebates on clinical costs as part of the Australian Government’s clinical trial attraction incentive program.”
Avance Clinical has recently won the BDO Excellence in Business Award 2021 for rapid managed growth and attracting and nurturing experienced staff in a competitive global environment. The mid-sized CRO has a reputation for going beyond the industry standard time and support for Sponsors and providing staff the training and resources needed to deliver excellence in clinical research management.
