Empagliflozin is under clinical development by Boehringer Ingelheim International and currently in Phase III for Chronic Kidney Disease (Chronic Renal Failure). According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for Chronic Kidney Disease (Chronic Renal Failure) have a 62% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Pre-Registration. GlobalData’s report assesses how Empagliflozin’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.

Empagliflozin overview

Empagliflozin (Jardiance, BI 10773, Gibtulio, Jardianz) is an anti-diabetic drug, belongs to the class of blood glucose lowering drugs. It is formulated as coated tablets and film-coated tablets for oral route of administration.

It is also indicated as an adjunct to diet, exercise and standard care therapy, to reduce the incidence of cardiovascular (CV) death in patients with type 2 diabetes and established CV disease who have inadequate glycemic control. Jardiance also indicated to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death in adult patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Jardiance is indicated in adults, as an adjunct to standard of care therapy, for the treatment of patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. Jardiance is indicated to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death and hospitalization for heart failure in adults. Jardiance (empagliflozin) is indicated for the treatment of symptomatic chronic heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) in adults. Jardiance is indicated in adults as an adjunct to standard of care therapy for the treatment of chronic heart failure.

The drug candidate is under development for the treatment of glycogen storage disease type 1b and type 2, postprandial hypoglycemia, pulmonary arterial hypertension and kidney stones. It is a new chemical entity. It is also under development for cardiovascular outcomes in chronic heart failure with reduced and preserved ejection fraction (Systolic and Diastolic heart failure), acute heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, acute decompensated heart failure and coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and chronic kidney disease.

The drug candidate was under development for the treatment of type 1 diabetes.
