Erenumab is under clinical development by Amgen and currently in Phase II for Trigeminal Neuralgia (Tic Douloureux). According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Trigeminal Neuralgia (Tic Douloureux) have a 50% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Erenumab’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.

Erenumab overview

Erenumab (Aimovig, Aerinex, Pasurta, Glaseeq) is a human immunoglobulin G2 (IgG2) monoclonal antibody. It is formulated as solution in a single-dose for sub-cutaneous route of administration. Erenumab is indicated for the preventive treatment of migraine in adults.

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

GlobalData’s Likelihood of Approval analytics tool dynamically assesses and predicts how likely a drug will move to the next stage in its clinical pathway (PTSR), as well as how likely the drug will be approved (LoA). This is based on a proprietary algorithm built from the drugs’ sales forecast, regulatory milestones, cost forecasts, WACC rate and other proprietary data sources found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
