      Hong Kong helps speed up development of new treatments as number of clinical trials in city surges

      Rise came after Chinese state agency officially recognised results of Phase 1 tests here for registration of new medications in mainland.
      Hong Kong is playing an increasingly important role in speeding up the registration of new pharmaceuticals and therapies globally, with the number of clinical trials conducted in the city having surged significantly in the past year, the city’s two clinical trial centres told the Post.The centres at the University of Hong Kong and Chinese University have seen a multifold increase in the number of Phase 1 clinical trials – the first of three phases before a new medication enters the market – commissioned by overseas and Chinese pharmaceutical companies.
      There have been in total 26 ongoing or completed trials at the two centres since July 2016, compared with fewer than 10 in the preceding three years. The pharmaceuticals and therapies on trial include potential treatments for cancer, hepatitis, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and infectious diseases.
