SUMMARY

Clinical trials are research studies that explore whether a medical strategy, treatment, or device is safe and effective for humans.These studies also may show which medical approaches work best for certain illnesses or groups of people. A critical step in the process from discovery to development to delivery, clinical trials may provide access to qualified participants (patients) prior to final FDA approval and also through the dedication of researchers, innovators, and trial participants we find the answers we need to drive life changing innovation forward.Recently, PhRMA released state by state reports on the status of clinical trials in the bio pharmaceutical industry. From Hope to Cures: Arizona provides a snapshot of the work being done in clinical trails across our state.  But how do we measure up.Population is a key comparative measure that can be used to determine our peer group. Since Arizona’s population is just greater than 6.7 million people, we have looked at states that have 5 million to 7 million people to see how we measure up when it comes to clinical trials.(Note: These comparative numbers only reflect bio pharmaceutical clinical trials.  Additional trials take place everyday studying medical devices, diagnostics, behavioral health and other life changing healthcare innovations.)
