    Researchers have claimed that the improvement in antibody due to the new drug has decreased patient's time spent in recovery.

    Main Sentence:

    Researchers (Subject)

    have claimed (main verb)

    "that the improvement ..." is a noun clause used as an "object" for "claim"

    Noun clause:

    that the improvement in antibody due to the new drug has decreased patient's time spent in recovery.

    "due to" can only follow with noun or noun equilibrium (such as V-ing...). You can use "owing to", "because of" to replace "due to", but not "as" in this sentence.

    The colored portions denote subject, phrase, verb ...

    I didn't explain in detail but just use color to make the sentence easier to see is because explanation with grammar in this sentence is redundant when you can see the functions of those colored words.

    Researchers have claimed xxx.

    xxx = that the improvement has decreased patient's time.

    修飾語:

    in antibody 介系詞片語

    due to the new drug 介系詞片語

    spent in recovery 分詞片語

    我補充一下好了

    that子句裡面,

    主詞是the improvement in antibody

    動詞是has decreased

    due to 後面接的的確是名詞沒錯,到「the new drug」為止
