Glufosfamide is under clinical development by Eleison Pharmaceuticals and currently in Phase III for Metastatic Adenocarcinoma of The Pancreas. According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for Metastatic Adenocarcinoma of The Pancreas have a 38% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Pre-Registration. GlobalData’s report assesses how Glufosfamide’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.

Glufosfamide overview

Glufosfamide is under development for the treatment of metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma. The drug candidate is administered intravenously. Glufosfamide is beta-D-glucosyl-isophosphoramide mustard and a glucose-conjugated prodrug. It is an analogue of ifosfamide. It acts as an alkylating agent and stops tumor growth by cross-linking bases in DNA double-helix strands, directly attacking DNA. The drug candidate was also under development for the treatment of recurrent sensitive small-cell lung cancer, soft tissue sarcoma, epithelial ovarian cancer, peritoneal serous cancer, or carcinoma of the fallopian tube.
