Deupirfenidone is under clinical development by Puretech Health and currently in Phase I for Interstitial Lung Diseases (Diffuse Parenchymal Lung Disease). According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Interstitial Lung Diseases (Diffuse Parenchymal Lung Disease) have a 100% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how Deupirfenidone’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.

Deupirfenidone overview

Deupirfenidone (SD-560, LYT-100) is under development for the treatment of long COVID-19 (PACS) patients with respiratory complications including inflammation, fibrosis, pneumonia and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS),  idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and progressive fibrosing interstitial lung diseases (PF-ILDs). It was under development for the treatment of systemic sclerosis, lymphedema and other orphan diseases. The drug candidate is administered through oral route. The drug candidate is an analogue of deuterium-substituted pirfenidone and is developed based on Deuteration technology. It is a new chemical entity.
