Fostamatinib disodium is under clinical development by Rigel Pharmaceuticals and currently in Phase II for Kidney Transplant Rejection. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Kidney Transplant Rejection have a 50% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Fostamatinib disodium’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.

Fostamatinib disodium overview

Fostamatinib disodium (Tavalisse, Tavlesse) is an immunomodulating agent. It is formulated as film-coated tablets for oral route of administration. Tavalisse is indicated for the treatment of thrombocytopenia in adult patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) who have had an insufficient response to a previous treatment. Tavlesse is indicated for the treatment of chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) in adult patients who are refractory to other treatments.

It is also under development for the treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa, acquired (autoimmune) hemolytic anemia, myelofibrosis with severe thrombocytopenia, pneimonia due to COVID-19 disease, platinum-resistant ovarian, fallopian tube, antibody mediated rejection in renal transplantation, and primary peritoneal cancer.It was also under development for the treatment of IgA nephropathy (Berger's disease), rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and hematological malignancies such as diffuse large B-Cell lymphoma, relapsed or refractory T-Cell lymphoma.
