The revenue for Atropine is expected to reach an annual total of $608 mn by 2033 globally 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.
Atropine (NVK-002) is under development for the treatment of myopia. It is administered as topical ophthalmic solution. The drug candidate acts by targeting muscarinic cholinergic receptor (CHRM).
