Catequentinib hydrochloride is under clinical development by Advenchen Laboratories and currently in Phase II for Small-Cell Lung Cancer. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Small-Cell Lung Cancer have a 26% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Catequentinib hydrochloride’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.

Catequentinib hydrochloride overview

Catequentinib hydrochloride (AL-3818) (Focus V, AL-3818) belongs to the class of organic compounds known as diarylethers acts as antineoplastic and anti-angiogenic agent. It is formulated as capsules for oral route of administration. Focus V is indicated for the treatment of patients, who are epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations or anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) positive, with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer who have experienced at least 2 systemic chemotherapy after progression or recurrence. Focus V is indicated for the treatment of alveolar soft tissue sarcoma, clear cell sarcoma and other patients with advanced soft tissue sarcoma who have undergone at least progression or recurrence after treatment with anthracycline-containing chemotherapy. Focus V is also indicated for the treatment of small cell lung cancer patients who have undergone at least two chemotherapy regimens after treatment or relapse. Focus V is also indicated for the treatment of unresectable locally advanced or metastatic medullary thyroid cancer patients with clinical symptoms or clear disease progression. Focus V is indicated for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic radioactive iodine refractory differentiated thyroid cancer (RAIR-DTC) which is inoperable.
