CAL-02 is under clinical development by Eagle Pharmaceuticals and currently in Phase II for Community-Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Community-Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia have a 68% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how CAL-02’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.

CAL-02 overview

CAL-02 (combioxin) is under development for the treatment of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections, Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections, hepatitis C infections, severe community-acquired pneumonia caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae. It is administered through intravenous route. The drug candidate comprises empty, uni-lamellar, uncoated, neutral, small liposomes composed of cholesterol and sphingomyelin and of sphingomyelin only.
