Albuvirtide LA is under clinical development by Frontier Biotechnologies and currently in Phase II for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Infections (AIDS). According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Infections (AIDS) have a 38% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Albuvirtide LA’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.

Albuvirtide LA overview

Albuvirtide (Aikening) is a 3-maleimimidopropionic acid (MPA)-modified peptide, acts as an anti-HIV agent. It is formulated as long-acting release injectable powder for solution for intravenous route of administration. Aikening is indicated for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection in combination with lopinavir or ritonavir (LPV/r) suppressed HIV replication in adults who failed the standard first-line antiretroviral drug.
