ACP-017 is under clinical development by Ascendis Pharma and currently in Phase II for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer have a 38% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how ACP-017’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.

ACP-017 overview

Small molecule is under development for the treatment of solid tumors including head and neck squamous-cell carcinoma (HNSCC), other HPV-associated cancers, melanoma, cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC), colon cancer, merkel cell carcinoma, anal cancer, vulvar cancer, penile cancer, vaginal cancer, cervical cancer, esophageal cancer, triple-negative breast cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, non-small cell lung cancer, oropharyngeal cancer, laryngeal cancer, hypopharyngeal cancer and oral cavity cancer. The drug candidate is a long acting prodrug of resiquimod administered through intratumoral route. It acts by targeting toll-like receptor (TLR) 7 and 8. It is developed based on the TransCon technology platform.
