CRO for Clinical Trials in Japan

Japan is one of the most strategic countries in Asia to run clinical trials. Sponsors select Japan to conduct their clinical studies due to the high quality of research and the high volume of patients offered by Japanese sites. The clinical trial database of the US (clinicaltrials.gov), as of June 2021, indicated that 6,541 clinical studies included the participation of a Japanese hospital.

Japan has a total population of about 125 million people, which offers substantial potential to conduct clinical trials across different disease types. In addition, the country has prestigious hospitals located in the main cities: Tokyo, Yokohama, and Osaka.
