Galinpepimut-S is under clinical development by SELLAS Life Sciences Group and currently in Phase II for Solid Tumor. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Solid Tumor have a 10% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Galinpepimut-S’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.

Galinpepimut-S overview

Galinpepimut-S is under development for the treatment of acute myelocytic leukemia (AML), acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL),  lung cancer, solid tumor, malignant pleural mesothelioma, multiple myeloma, ovarian cancer, colorectal cancer, triple-negative breast cancer, small-cell lung cancer, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer, ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer, peritoneal cancer, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma and myelodysplastic syndrome. It is formulated as an emulsion or solution and administered subcutaneously and parenterally. It is a synthetic peptide vaccine consisting of the immunogenic amino acids of the human Wilms tumor protein-1 peptides which include WT-1 A1, WT-1 122 long, WT-1 427 long and WT-1 331 long. The therapeutic candidate targets Wilms tumor protein 1 (WT1). It was also under development for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and glioblastoma multiforme.
