Asia-Pacific's largest specialist biotech CRO Novotech said many countries in the region were now fast-tracking their COVID-19 clients' clinical trials with expedited review processes for treatment and vaccine candidates.

A Novotech Client COVID-19 trial was just approved in under 9 days in South Korea.

The South Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) has announced "GO-expedite" program where they are expediting the review process for COVID-19 treatment and vaccine trials with specific timelines.

Other countries are also fast-tracking COVID-19 trial reviews including:

  • India: review/approval in 10 working days
