Eflornithine hydrochloride is under clinical development by Panbela Therapeutics and currently in Phase II for Type 1 Diabetes (Juvenile Diabetes). According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Type 1 Diabetes (Juvenile Diabetes) have a 54% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Eflornithine 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.

Eflornithine hydrochloride overview

Eflornithine Hydrochloride (Iwilfin) is alpha amino acid acts as an anti-neoplatic agent. It is formulated as tablets for oral route of administration. Iwilfin is indicated to reduce the risk of relapse in adult and pediatric patients with high-risk neuroblastoma (HRNB) who have demonstrated at least a partial response to prior multiagent, multimodality therapy including anti-GD2 immunotherapy.
