Boston, USA - Novotech, the leading Asia Pacific centred biotech CRO with global execution capabilities, today released the latest 2023 global clinical trial landscape reports on dyslipidaemia and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

The Novotech research analyst team offers these expert reports monthly at no cost.  

These reports provide up-to-date information on global clinical trial activity, shedding 

light on the regions that are witnessing the highest trial numbers and the reasons driving these trends. It also addresses the challenges confronting biotech companies in these specific therapeutic domains and the future directions in therapy and investment trends.

The expert report titled Dyslipidaemia - Global Clinical Trial Landscape found that since 2018, the biopharma industry has initiated over 500 dyslipidaemia clinical trials worldwide, with the majority of them occurring in the Asia-Pacific region. 

Dyslipidaemia, marked by abnormal blood lipids, significantly increases ischemic heart disease risk. Over the past three decades, global dyslipidaemia rates have surged, emphasizing a pressing public health concern.

The report analysed global trial data and found:

  • APAC contributed >65% of dyslipidaemia trials, notably driven by Mainland China and South Korea
  • In the West, North America and Europe have also played crucial roles, conducting nearly 30% of the trials, with the US and Canada contributing 69% and 31% of trials respectively. 
  • In Europe, the UK, the Netherlands, and Poland stand out as the leaders in hosting dyslipidaemia trials, demonstrating the region’s dedication and advancement in this field.
  • APAC has not only demonstrated considerably shorter recruitment durations but has also shown notably faster patient recruitment rates. 

The report also referenced 2022 prevalence data provided by GlobalData, revealing that China and India have the highest incidence of dyslipidaemia among Asian regions. In the Asia Pacific region, Japan follows closely with more than 44 million cases, with South Korea and Australia also showing substantial numbers. In the Western countries, the United States has a significant burden with over 130 million cases, while the EU5 countries, including Germany, Spain, Italy, France, and the United Kingdom, collectively account for more than 110 million cases of dyslipidaemia.


The  Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer - Global Clinical Trial Landscape report found that since 2018, the biopharma industry has initiated over 3,000 NSCLC clinical trials worldwide.

More than 50% of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) trials were conducted in North America and Europe, with the United States and Canada in North America, and Spain and France in Europe taking the lead in trial locations. The data from the report indicates that the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region accounted for approximately 40% of NSCLC trials. Mainland China and South Korea emerged as prominent hubs for NSCLC research in the APAC region, owing to their advanced research facilities and favorable regulatory environments.

The rest of the world (South and Central America and the Middle East and Africa) accounts for roughly 8% of all clinical trials carried out, making a valuable contribution to the worldwide collaborative endeavors in NSCLC drug research and development.

The report also noted:

  • NSCLC is the most common lung cancer which accounts for about 85% of all lung cancer cases worldwide. 
  • Asia, particularly Japan, China, and India, takes the lead in terms of NSCLC cases.
  • The US and Europe together comprise around 30% of NSCLC cases.
  • APAC shows shorter recruitment durations compared to Europe and the US, recruiting patients at roughly double the rate of the US.

The report found that marketed treatments for NSCLC primarily include small-molecule drugs like erlotinib and gefitinib, along with anti-cancer drugs such as bevacizumab and alectinib. Phase III development for NSCLC involves a range of molecules, including bispecific or multispecific antibodies and small molecules. 

Immunotherapy, which uses the body's immune system to fight NSCLC has emerged as a viable treatment option, providing hope for improved prognosis and enhanced quality of life for patients.
