Avoplacel is under clinical development by Pluri and currently in Phase I for Radiation Toxicity (Radiation Sickness, Acute Radiation Syndrome). According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Radiation Toxicity (Radiation Sickness, Acute Radiation Syndrome) have a 76% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how Avoplacel’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.

Avoplacel overview

Avoplacel (PLXR-18) is under development for the treatment of acute radiation syndrome and incomplete hematopoietic recovery following bone marrow transplantation. The therapeutic candidate is an allogeneic product. The therapeutic candidate is administered through  intramuscular route. It is developed based on a three-dimensional technology platform which enables the conversion of human placental cells into PLacental eXpanded (PLX) cells, which secrete therapeutic proteins in response to signals produced by damaged tissues.

It was also under development for the treatment of chemotherapy induced bone marrow hypoplasia, and aplastic anemia.

Pluri overview

Pluri, formerly Pluristem Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biotherapy company that focuses on the development of placental-derived cell therapies. The company’s placental expanded cells are adherent stromal cells that can be administered to patients without tissue or genetic matching. Pluri’s product pipeline includes PLX-PAD for critical limb ischemia, intermittent claudication, orthopedic conditions, pulmonary arterial hypertension and women’s health. The company’s PLX-Immune for kidney, colorectal, breast, lung, muscle, skin and liver cancers, PLX-R18 for hematological system and acute radiation syndrome. Pluri harnesses its proprietary 3D cell expansion platform technology for developing its cell therapies. It works in partnership with medical, pharmaceutical and academic institutions. Pluri is headquartered in Haifa, Israel.
