Abiraterone is under clinical development by Austhera BioSciences and currently in Phase II for Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC). According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC) have a 27% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Abiraterone’s drug-specific PTSR and Likelihood of Approval (LoA) scores compare to the indication benchmarks. Buy the report here.

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.

Abiraterone overview

Abiraterone (DST-2970, KABE) is under development for the treatment of castrate sensitive or castrate resistant adenocarcinoma of the prostate. It is administered through oral route formulated as tablet. The therapeutic candidate acts by targeting 17 alpha-hydroxylase/C17,20-lyase (CYP17). The drug candidate is developed based on Kinetisol technology.

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 its clinical pathway (PTSR), as well as how likely the drug will be approved (LoA). This is based on a proprietary algorithm built from the drugs’ sales forecast, regulatory milestones, cost forecasts, WACC rate and other proprietary data sources found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
