BNT-321 is a Monoclonal Antibody owned by BioNTech, and is involved in 2 clinical trials, of which 1 was completed, and 1 is ongoing.

MVT-5873 acts by targeting cells expressing carbohydrate antigen sialyl-Lewis(a). Sialyl-Lewis(a) is a ligand for E-selectin which is responsible for adhesion of several types of human carcinoma cells to endothelium and plays an important role in the selective homing of tumor cells during metastasis. The drug candidate by targeting cells expressing sialyl-Lewis(a), blocks the expression of E-selectin on vascular endothelium and inhibits the adhesion of cancer cells to the endothelium thereby inhibiting metastasis of cancer cells.

The revenue for BNT-321 is expected to reach a total of $253m through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in a clinical process. View the complete picture with the BNT-321 NPV Report.

BNT-321 was originated by MabVax Therapeutics Holdings and is currently owned by BioNTech.

BNT-321 Overview

MVT-5873 is under development for the treatment of metastatic adenocarcinoma of the pancreas, cholangiocarcinoma, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma and metastatic colorectal cancer.. It is administered intravenously. It is a recombinant human IgG antibody that acts by targeting carbohydrate antigen sialyl-Lewis(a), also known as CA19.9. The drug candidate is developed based on human antibody discovery platform.

It was also under development for the treatment of CA19-9 positive malignancies including gastrointestinal cancer (colon cancer), non-small cell lung cancers, small cell lung cancers.

BioNTech Overview

BioNTech is a biotechnology company that develops immunotherapies for cancer and infectious diseases. It is investigating mRNA therapeutics, engineered cell therapies, antibodies and small molecule immunomodulators to treat advanced melanoma, solid tumors, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), prostate, head and neck, ovarian, pancreatic and triple negative breast cancer.

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

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, potential applicable patients, drug margins, company expenses, and pricing estimates. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate rNPV, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA)and phase transition success rate(PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
