IO-112 is under clinical development by IO Biotech and currently in Phase I for Head And Neck Cancer Squamous Cell Carcinoma. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Head And Neck Cancer Squamous Cell Carcinoma have a 79% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how IO-112’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.
