Over a third of oncology trials disrupted by COVID-19 resume: GlobalData

16 August 2020
More than one third of oncology trials disrupted by COVID-19 are now back on track (37.8%)- according to the latest report from GlobalData.

The new report shows that in spite of the continued spread of the virus organizations have been implementing a number of strategies to ensure vital oncology studies can get back on track.

The report notes that while telemedicine has helped in resuming trials challenges remain in particular for oncology patients who need to be closely and carefully monitored. Read more here.
