Epinephrine is a Small Molecule owned by Viatris, and is involved in 3 clinical trials, which were completed.

Epinephrine acts directly on alpha-adrenergic receptors and to a lesser degree, beta-adrenergic receptors. Through direct action on alpha1-adrenergic receptors in the mucosa of the respiratory tract, it produces vasoconstriction. It relaxes bronchial smooth muscle by stimulating beta2-adrenergic receptors.

The revenue for Epinephrine is expected to reach a total of $5.1bn 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 Epinephrine NPV Report.

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, drug margins and company expenses. 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 valuation, 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.
