Accelerating the Development of Oncology Medicines


Oncology drugs dominate today’s research focus with over >5500 molecules in development, representing over 35% of the total industry pipeline. 10 new oncology drugs were approved by the FDA in 2019, of which half had an orphan indication and all had been granted priority review. Given the number of molecules in development, there is increasing pressure on development
teams to identify successful drug candidates as quickly as possible, and accelerate patient access, particularly where no effective therapies are currently available.
