Belapectin is under clinical development by Galectin Therapeutics and currently in Phase I for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer have an 82% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how Belapectin’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.

Belapectin overview

Belapectin (GR-MD-02) is under development for the treatment of NASH with advanced fibrosis, liver fibrosis and decompensated liver cirrhosis, kidney fibrosis, cardiovascular fibrosis, pulmonary arterial hypertension, arrhythmias, metastatic melanoma, lung fibrosis, prostate cancer, sarcomas, breast cancer, head and neck cancer squamous cell carcinoma, non-small cell lung cancer and portal hypertension. It is administered through intravenous route and targets galectin-3. It is a proprietary galactoarabino-rhamnogalacturonan polysaccharide polymer that is comprised predominantly of galacturonic acid, galactose, arabinose, rhamnose and smaller amounts of other sugars. The drug candidate is developed based on the carbohydrate technology. It is a new chemical entity. It was also under development for the treatment of diabetic nephropathy, moderate to severe plaque psoriasis and severe atopic dermatitis.

GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

GlobalData’s Likelihood of Approval analytics tool dynamically assesses and predicts how likely a drug will move to the next stage in its clinical pathway (PTSR), as well as how likely the drug will be approved (LoA). This is based on a proprietary algorithm built from the drugs’ sales forecast, regulatory milestones, cost forecasts, WACC rate and other proprietary data sources found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
