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.

DPI-125 overview

DPI-125 is under development for the treatment of pain and opioid use disorder (OUD). The drug candidate is administered as an intravenous formulation and as transdermal patch. It is a small molecule compounds with specific activity at the delta receptor. DPI-125 is a mixed delta/mu analgesic. Delta- and mu- opioid receptors are GPCRs of the nervous system. Opioid receptors are present in many regions of the nervous system that are involved in pain transmission and control, including primary afferent neurons, spinal cord, midbrain and thalamus. Opioids exert their pharmacological actions through delta and mu opioid receptors. Delta and mu opioid receptors in the brain are activated by a family of endogenous peptides like enkephalins, dynorphins and endorphin, which are released by neurons. Opioids produce effects on neurons by acting on receptors located on neuronal cell membranes. Opioids primarily act as inhibitory agents in the neural circuit. The drug candidate as a delta- and mu- opioid receptor agonist may inhibit the neurotransmitter release.

It was under development for acute post-operative pain and nociceptive pain.
