This week’s clinicaltrials.gov registry update from the Medialis Ltd team.
Since Monday 13th April 2020, a further 211 clinical trials were registered using #coronavirus and its synonyms #coronaviruss, #covid19, #sarscov2, #2019ncov etc.) by the end of Monday 20th April, taking the current total to 639. This represents an almost 50% increase in studies since Monday 13th April, and an increase of over 110% since Monday 6th April.
Further, whilst there has been an increase in the number of clinical trials registered which involve a drug intervention and there are now over 150 discrete drug interventions being assessed, there does not appear to be any change in the number of vaccine studies or their predicted end dates. However, 57% of all studies are now stated to complete by November 2020, an increase of 5% since Monday 6th April.
