Smarter leaders trust GlobalData

GlobalData tracks drug-specific phase transition and likelihood of approval scores, in addition to indication benchmarks based off 18 years of historical drug development data. Attributes of the drug, company and its clinical trials play a fundamental role in drug-specific PTSR and likelihood of approval.

AAA-603 overview

AAA-603 is under development for the treatment of multiple solid tumors like gastrointestinal stromal tumors, glioblastoma, metastatic prostate cancer, lung cancer, neuroblastoma, ovarian, head and neck, recurrent glioblastoma multiforme, esophageal and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative breast cancer (her2- breast cancer). The drug candidate is a bombesin analogue radioconjugated radiolabelled with 177Lu. It is based on molecular nuclear therapy that combines two approaches such as tumor targeting and radiation therapy. The drug candidate acts by targeting gastrin releasing peptide receptor (GRPR). It is a new molecular entity. It is administered through intravenous route.

It was under development for the treatment of colorectal cancer.
