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.
Azercabtagene zapreleucel overview
Azercabtagene zapreleucel (PBCAR-0191) is under development for the treatment of graft vs host disease, relapsed or refractory B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia and B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma including diffuse large B cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, primary mediastinal B-cell lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, small lymphocytic lymphoma, high grade B cell lymphoma and autoimmune disorders. It is administered through intravenous route. The therapeutic candidate constitutes of allogenic anti-CD19 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells. It is developed based on the ARCUS technology platform. It is a genome editing platform derived from a natural genome editing enzyme called homing endonuclease which incorporates Adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector. It acts by targeting cells expressing the CD19 protein.
