Two Studies to be Released at Next Week's BIO CEO Conference

February 11, 2011
BIO Industry Analysis recently teamed up with BioMedTracker and Ipreo for two separate studies and plans to release the results at the 13th Annual BIO CEO Conference in New York next Tuesday, Feb 15th. The BIO/BioMedTracker study results will provide the most recent clinical trial success rates for the industry and the BIO/IPREO survey results will show what biotech investors are looking for in 2011. For more details about each study, read on:

BIO/BioMedTracker study:

Trial and Error: Breaking Down Clinical Trial Success Rates

BIO has teamed up with BioMedTracker to conduct the most comprehensive study of clinical trial success rates to date.  Using clinical trial data from the past six years, the analysis will examine the most recent  probability of success by treatment type, phase of development and therapeutic area.

The study builds on the findings from previous studies (See previous post on Tufts data) and uses a broader, deeper, and larger sample than previous reviews of clinical trials and approvals data.  The team analyzed 4,275 drugs and over 7,300 unique development paths using the BioMedTracker (BMT) proprietary database.

The BMT/BIO analysis includes breakdowns by indication, disease group, molecule type, and route of administration.  The study and corresponding panel will take an in-depth look at FDA decisions and approval rates by FDA review number.

BIO/Ipreo study:

Survey Says! The Year Ahead in Biotech-Seeing Green or Turning Green?

The BIO/IPREO study surveyed investors on their outlook for the biotech sector and wider biotechnology industry in 2011.  The 135 investment professionals surveyed represent firms with $2 trillion in equity assets under management, including $166 billion invested in healthcare and $38 billion invested in biotech.

The BIO/Ipreo study will show that the majority of investors believe that biotech is headed in the right direction and that this is generally a good time to invest.  Renewed investor optimism is particularly promising for smaller companies, which have had significant capital formation challenges in the past several years.
