Eptinezumab is under clinical development by H. Lundbeck and currently in Phase III for Cluster Headache Syndrome (Cluster Headache). According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for Cluster Headache Syndrome (Cluster Headache) have a 50% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Pre-Registration. GlobalData’s report assesses how Eptinezumab’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.
Eptinezumab (Vyepti) is a humanized immunoglobulin G1(IgG1) monoclonal antibody, which is produced in Pichia pastoris yeast cells by recombinant DNA technology. It is formulated as solution, concentrate solution for intravenous route of administration. Vyepti is indicated as preventive treatment of migraine in adults.
Eptinezumab is under development for the treatment of episodic cluster headache (eCH), chronic migraine and frequent episodic migraine in EU and Canada. It is administered as an intramuscular, intravenous infusion and subcutaneous injection. The drug candidate is a genetically engineered monoclonal antibody acts by targeting calcitonin gene related peptide(CGRP). It is based on Antibody Selection (ABS) process and Mab Xpress antibody production system. The production system exploits yeast expression system to make fully functional whole antibodies.
