Elamipretide hydrochloride is under clinical development by Stealth BioTherapeutics and currently in Pre-Registration for Barth Syndrome. According to GlobalData, Pre-Registration drugs for Barth Syndrome does not have sufficient historical data to build an indication benchmark PTSR for Pre-Registration. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to create drugs-specific PTSR and LoA in the Elamipretide hydrochloride LoA Report. 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.

Elamipretide hydrochloride overview

Elamipretide hydrochloride (Bendavia) is under development for the treatment of primary mitochondrial diseases including mitochondrial myopathy, Senger syndrome, Barth syndrome, Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy, dry age-related macular degeneration with geographic atrophy, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Friedreich ataxia, Becker muscular dystrophy and other cardiomyopathies. It is administered through intravenous, oral, ophthalmic and subcutaneous routes. It is a new chemical entity that targets mitochondria and binds to mitochondrial membrane permeability transition pore (mPTP).
It was also under development for diseases associated with aging including acute heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) and preserved rejection failure (HFpEF), endothelial dysfunction induced by a single cigarette, Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy, acute kidney injury, ischemic reperfusion injury, diabetic macular edema, and acute coronary syndrome.
