Breast cancer was the most studied disease in 2021 - Phesi
Breast cancer affects 2.2mn people a year across the world - including men, where the cancer grows inside breast tissue. In the USA, breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women, totaling 30% of all new cancers in women, every year.
Phesi claims that ‘Within breast cancer clinical development, 25,000 investigator sites have been solely dedicated to recruiting patients since 2017. This trend was not impacted by COVID-19; this includes pharma and academic studies and the same investigator sites involved in multiple trials.’
