The revenue for Izokibep is expected to reach an annual total of $2.6 bn by 2038 in the US based off GlobalData’s Expiry Model. The drug’s revenue forecasts along with estimated costs are used to measure the value of an investment opportunity in that drug, otherwise known as net present value (NPV). Applying the drug’s phase transition success rate to remaining R&D costs and likelihood of approval (LoA) to sales related costs provides a risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). The rNPV model is a more conservative valuation measure that accounts for the risk of a drug in clinical development failing to progress.

Izokibep Overview

Izokibep (ABY-035) is under development for the treatment of posterior uveitis, panuveitis, non-infectious uveitis, intermediate uveitis, patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis, active psoriatic arthritis with inflammatory musculoskeletal disease, hidradenitis suppurativa. It is administered through subcutaneous route. ABY-035 is a IL-17A blocking molecule. It is developed based on affibody technology. Affibody molecules are antibody mimetics with superior characteristics surpassing monoclonal antibodies and antibody fragments. It was also under development for Takayasu arteritis.

It was also under development for the treatment of ankylosing spondylitis(AS) and musculoskeletal inflammation

Blending expert knowledge with cutting-edge technology, GlobalData’s unrivalled proprietary data will enable you to decode what’s happening in your market. You can make better informed decisions and gain a future-proof advantage over your competitors.


GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, drug margins and company expenses. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate valuation, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA) and phase transition success rate (PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
