Insulin aspart is under clinical development by Biocon and currently in Pre-Registration for Type 2 Diabetes. According to GlobalData, Pre-Registration drugs for Type 2 Diabetes have a 93% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Marketed. GlobalData’s report assesses how Insulin aspart’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.
