Alectinib is under clinical development by Chugai Pharmaceutical and currently in the Phase II in clinical pathway. The characteristics of the clinical trial as well as other attributes related to the drug, regulations, and company play a fundamental role in ensuring the likelihood of transition that the drug moves from its current development stage to next.

According to GlobalData, the latest event to affect Alectinib’s likelihood of approval (LoA) and phase transition for Solid Tumor took place on 27 Jun 2022, which decreased the likelihood that the drug progresses to the next phase in its clinical pathway.

GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of this assessment in their Alectinib Likelihood of Approval (LoA) and Phase Transition Success Rate (PTSR) Report.

Alectinib overview

Alectinib (Alecensa/Alecensaro) is an antineoplastic agent. It is an anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) inhibitor. It is formulated as hard gelatin capsules for oral route of administration. Alecensa is indicated for the treatment of patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive, metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who have progressed on or are intolerant to crizotinib and as a monotherapy for the first-line treatment of adult patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive, advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Alecensa is also indicated for recurrent or refractory ALK fusion gene-positive anaplastic large-cell lymphoma.

Alectinib is under development for the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) tumor, advanced or metastatic solid tumors, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) as an adjuvant therapy and first line therapy. It is administered through oral route as a capsule.

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.
