AAV-AQP1 is under clinical development by MeiraGTx and currently in Phase II for Xerostomia. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Xerostomia does not have sufficient historical data to build an indication benchmark PTSR for Phase II. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to create drugs-specific PTSR and LoA in the AAV-AQP1 LoA Report. Buy the report here.

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.

AAV-AQP1 overview

AAV-AQP1 is under development for the treatment of xerostomia resulting from the use of ionizing radiation in the treatment of head and neck cancer and xerostomia associated with Sjogren’s syndrome. The drug candidate is administered slowly into the single parotid salivary gland through intraductal route. It consists of adeno-associated virus vector serotype 2 containing the human aquaporin-1 gene (AAV2hAQP1). The therapeutic candidate is developed based on synthetic biology and gene regulation platform.

The gold standard of business intelligence.

Blending expert knowledge with cutting-edge technology, GlobalData’s unrivalled proprietary data will enable you to decode what’s happening in your market. You can make better informed decisions and gain a future-proof advantage over your competitors.


GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

GlobalData’s Likelihood of Approval analytics tool dynamically assesses and predicts how likely a drug will move to the next stage in clinical development (PTSR), as well as how likely the drug will be approved (LoA). This is based on a combination of machine learning and a proprietary algorithm to process data points from various databases found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
