Epitinib is a Small Molecule owned by Hutchison MediPharma, and is involved in 2 clinical trials, which were completed.

HMPL-813 is an anti-cancer agent. The drug candidate acts by blocking the epidermal growth factor receptor(EGFR). Epidermal growth factor (EGF) attaches to its receptor EGFR and results in receptor activation. Activation of the EGFR further causes autophosphorylation of key tyrosine residues. These pathways act in a coordinated manner to promote cell differentiation. The drug candidate selectively blocks EGFR and inhibits uncontrolled proliferation of the cell.

The revenue for Epitinib is expected to reach a total of $2.9bn 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 Epitinib NPV Report.

Epitinib is originated and owned by Hutchison MediPharma. Hutchmed China is the other company associated in development or marketing of Epitinib.

Epitinib Overview

HMPL-813 (Epitinib) is under development for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme. It is an orally active small molecule. It acts by targeting EGFR signalling pathway and induced cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. The drug candidate was also under development for the treatment of esophageal cancer, solid tumors metastasized to the brain and non-small cell lung cancer.

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.
