Dinutuximab is under clinical development by United Therapeutics and currently in Phase II for Osteosarcoma. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Osteosarcoma have a 13% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Dinutuximab’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.
Dinutuximab (Unituxin) is a chimeric monoclonal antibody, composed of a combination of mouse and human DNA acts as an anti-neoplastic agent. It is formulated as solution, concentrate solution for intravenous or Intravenous drip route of administration. Unituxin is indicated in combination with granulocyte-macrophage colonystimulating factor (GM-CSF), interleukin-2 (IL-2) and 13-cis-retinoic acid (RA), for the treatment of pediatric patients with high-risk neuroblastoma who achieve at least a partial response to prior first-line multiagent, multimodality therapy.
Dinutuximab is under development for the treatment of osteosarcoma. It was also under development for relapsed and refractory small-cell lung cancer.
