Belinostat is under clinical development by Acrotech Biopharma and currently in Phase I for Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma have a 74% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how Belinostat’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.
