Clinical trials generate the evidence needed to bring safe and effective medicines to patients. But did you know that they're also a powerful engine for jobs and local economies?
A 2013 review of biopharmaceutical industry-sponsored, site-based clinical trials across the United States found that the industry:
- Sponsored nearly 6,200 site-based clinical trials with 1.1 million participants
- Invested close to $10 billion to conduct clinical trials at sites in 50 states
- Generated $25 billion in economic impact from conducting clinical trials in communities throughout the country
