FS-222 is under clinical development by F-star Therapeutics and currently in Phase I for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer have an 80% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how FS-222’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.

FS-222 overview

FS-222 is under development for the treatment of solid tumor including PD-1 refractory melanoma, ovarian cancer , non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), mucosal and cutaneous melanoma, triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), mesothelioma and MSS colorectal cancer.
