Enasidenib mesylate is a Small Molecule owned by Bristol-Myers Squibb, and is involved in 9 clinical trials, of which 1 was completed, and 8 are ongoing.

Enasidenib mesylate is a selective, potent inhibitor of the mutated IDH2 protein. AG-221 (IDH-2) catalyze the oxidative decarboxylation of isocitrate to 2-oxoglutarate. IDH mutations induce DNA hypermethylation which is an epigenetic phenomenon in many cancer cells, and impair differentiation in hematopoietic cells. Oncometabolite 2-hydroxyglutarates (2HG) high levels may lead to the epigenetic rewiring of cells and tumorigenesis. The drug candidate act by disrupting certain enzymes which are responsible for any of glycolysis, fatty acid metabolism and autophagy which play critical role in cancer metabolism. The drug candidate produces therapeutic action by Inhibition of IDH-2.

The revenue for Enasidenib mesylate is expected to reach a total of $3.3bn through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in a clinical process. View the complete picture with the Enasidenib mesylate NPV Report.

Enasidenib mesylate was originated by Agios Pharmaceuticals and is currently owned by Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Enasidenib mesylate Overview

Enasidenib mesylate (CC-90007, AG-221, Idhifa) is an anti cancer agent. It is formulated as film coated tablets and tablets for oral route of administration. Idhifa is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with an isocitrate dehydrogenase-2 (IDH2) mutation.

It is under development for the treatment of clonal cytopenia of undetermined significance (CCUS), hematologic malignancies including untreated or relapsed and refractory AML (in the EU), and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), relapsed/ refractory multiple myeloma, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML), myeloproliferative neoplasm solid tumors, hepatic impairment.

It was also under development for non-Hodgkins T cell lymphoma, myeloproliferative disorders, angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL), solid tumor and hematological tumor, type II D-2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria.

GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, potential applicable patients, drug margins, company expenses, and pricing estimates. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate rNPV, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA)and phase transition success rate(PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
