Ipatasertib is under clinical development by Genentech USA and currently in Phase I for Oropharyngeal Cancer. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Oropharyngeal Cancer have an 81% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how Ipatasertib’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.
