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.

AMT-260 overview

AMT-260 is under development for the treatment of refractory mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE). The drug candidate comprises of adeno associated virus 9 and targets kainate receptor. It acts by targeting GRIK2 gene and suppress aberrantly expressed GluK2 containing kainate receptors. It is administered by intracerebral route and is being developed based on NAV AVV9 (LinQURE) technology.
