Daratumumab is under clinical development by Johnson & Johnson and currently in Phase II for Myelodysplastic Syndrome. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Myelodysplastic Syndrome have a 30% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Daratumumab’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.
Daratumumab ((HuMax-CD38, JNJ-54767414, Darzalex, Dalinvi) is an immunoglobulin G1 kappa (IgG1κ) human monoclonal antibody against CD38 antigen, produced in a mammalian cell line. It is formulated as solution and concentrate solution for intravenous route of administration. Daratumumab is indicated for the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma who have received at least three prior lines of therapy including a proteasome inhibitor (PI) and an immunomodulatory agent or who are double-refractory to a PI and an immunomodulatory agent. Darzalex is indicated in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone, or bortezomib and dexamethasone, for the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma who have received at least one prior therapy, and in combination with bortezomib, melphalan and prednisone (VMP), for the treatment of patients newly diagnosed with multiple myeloma who are ineligible for autologous stem cell transplantation, in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients who are ineligible for autologous stem cell transplant, and in combination with bortezomib, thalidomide and dexamethasone for the treatment of adult patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma who are eligible for autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT). It is also indicated in combination with carfilzomib and dexamethasone (DKd) for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma who have received one to three previous lines of therapy and also indicated in combination with bortezomib, cyclophosphamide, and dexamethasone, for the treatment of adult patients with newly diagnosed light chain (AL) amyloidosis.
Daratumumab is under development for treatment of precursor B-cell lymphoblastic leukemia-lymphoma, T-cell leukemia, peripheral T-cell lymphoma not otherwise specified (PTCL-NOS), angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL), relapsed or refractory plasmablastic lymphoma, POEMS syndrome, metastatic renal cell carcinoma or muscle invasive bladder cancer, triple negative breast cancer, plasma cell leukemia, pancreatic adenocarcinnoma rheumatoid arthritis, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, amyloid light-chain (AL) amyloidosis as a first line therapy, front line multiple myeloma, T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, lymphoblastic lymphoma relapsed and refractory natural killer/T-cell lymphomas (NKTCL), myelodysplastic syndrome and relapsed or refractory acute myelogenous leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, systemic lupus erythematosus, lupus nephritis, primary antiphospholipid syndrome and waldenstrom macroglobulinemia. It is developed using recombinant DNA technology. It is a new molecular entity (NME). It was also under development for the treatment of relapsed or refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, prostate cancer as first-line therapy, and non-small cell lung cancer
