AOC-1044 is under clinical development by Avidity Biosciences and currently in Phase II for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy have a 61% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how AOC-1044’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.

AOC-1044 overview

AOC-1044 is under development for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The drug candidate is an antibody oligonucleotide conjugate (AOC) comprising monoclonal antibody that binds to the transferrin receptor 1 (TfR1) conjugated with phosphorodiamidate morpholino oligomer (PMO) targeting exon 44 of dystrophin mRNA. It is being developed based on antibody oligonucleotide conjugate (AOC) platform.
