Givosiran is a Antisense RNAi Oligonucleotide owned by Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, and is involved in 8 clinical trials, of which 5 were completed, 2 are ongoing, and 1 is planned.

Givosiran targets the aminolevulinate synthase 1 (ALAS-1). It knocks down of ALAS-1 mRNA and completly inhibits the toxic intermediates that mediate the symptoms and pathology of acute intermittent porphyria (AIP). The ALAS1 gene provides instructions for making an enzyme called delta-aminolevulinate synthase 1 or ALA-synthase. The drug candidate inhibits the ALAS-1 and controls Porphobilinogen deaminase (PBGD) and lowers the accumulation of heme precursors.

The revenue for Givosiran is expected to reach a total of $8.4bn through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in a clinical process. View the complete picture with the Givosiran NPV Report.

Givosiran is originated and owned by Alnylam Pharmaceuticals.

Givosiran Overview

Givosiran sodium (Givlaari) is a hepatoprotective agent. It is formulated as solution for subcutaneous route of administration. Givosiran is indicated for the treatment of adults with acute hepatic porphyria (AHP). Givlaari is indicated for the treatment of acute hepatic porphyria (AHP) in adults and adolescents aged 12 years and older.

 It is under development for the treatment of hepatic porphyrias including acute intermittent porphyria (AIP), hereditary corproporhyria, variegate porphyria, Delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase deficient porphyria in Japan. The drug candidate is administered subcutaneously. It is a RNAi therapeutic targeting ALAS-1, a liver-expressed, rate-limiting enzyme upstream of PBGD in the heme biosynthesis pathway. It is developed based on Enhanced Stabilization Chemistry (ESC)-GalNAc delivery platform.

Alnylam Pharmaceuticals Overview

Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (Alnylam) is a biopharmaceutical company, which discovers, develops and commercializes drugs based on RNAi interference. The company’s marketed RNAi therapies include Onpattro, which is used in the treatment of the polyneuropathy of hereditary transthyretin-mediated amyloidosis (hATTR amyloidosis; Givlaari for acute hepatic porphyria, and Oxlumo for primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1). The company develops a broad pipeline of investigational RNAi drugs in the areas of genetic medicines, hepatic infectious, cardio-metabolic, and central nervous system (CNS) diseases. Its late-stage product candidates include vutrisiran for ATTR amyloidosis, inclisiran for hypercholesterolemia, fitusiran for hemophilia and rare bleeding disorders, and lumasiran for severe PH1. The company operates subsidiaries in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Alnylam is headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the US.

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

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, potential applicable patients, drug margins, company expenses, and pricing estimates. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate rNPV, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA)and phase transition success rate(PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
