The revenue for ARX-720 is expected to reach an annual total of $7 mn by 2038 in the US based off GlobalData’s Expiry Model. The drug’s revenue forecasts along with estimated costs are used to measure the value of an investment opportunity in that drug, otherwise known as net present value (NPV). Applying the drug’s phase transition success rate to remaining R&D costs and likelihood of approval (LoA) to sales related costs provides a risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). The rNPV model is a more conservative valuation measure that accounts for the risk of a drug in clinical development failing to progress.
ARX-720 is under development for the treatment of heart failure. The drug candidate targets and enhances the activity relaxin peptide receptor. It is based on ReCODE platform technology. This technology modifies the native proteins with amino acid building blocks beyond the common 20 to engineer enhanced versions for investigation for therapeutic use.
