Inebilizumab is under clinical development by Amgen and currently in Phase III for Myasthenia Gravis. According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for Myasthenia Gravis have a 70% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Pre-Registration. GlobalData’s report assesses how Inebilizumab’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.

Inebilizumab overview

Inebilizumab-cdon (Uplizna, Xinyue) is a CD19-directed glyco-engineered humanized afucosylated IgG1 monoclonal antibody produced by recombinant DNA technology in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell suspension culture. It is formulated as solution for intravenous and intravenous drip route of administration. It is indicated for the treatment of neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) in adult patients who are anti-aquaporin-4 (AQP4) antibody positive.

Inebilizumab (MEDI-551) is under development for the treatment of systemic sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) in pediatrics, Myasthenia Gravis and IgG4-related disease. The drug candidate is administered through intravenous infusion and subcutaneous route. It is an immunoglobulin IgG1 kappa monoclonal antibody directed against the B-cell-specific membrane protein CD19.

It was also under development for the treatment of kidney transplant desensitization, relapsed and refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, scleroderma, relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS), progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis (PRMS), clinically isolated syndrome (CIS), multiple myeloma, follicular lymphoma, indolent lymphoma and mantle cell lymphoma.
