    "Phase II clinical programs historically have experienced the lowest success rate of the four development phases.

    In 2010, the percentage of phase II trials that proceeded to phase III was 18%

    And only 30.7% of developmental candidates advanced from Phase II to Phase III in a large study of trials from 2006–2015."
