KA-2237 is under clinical development by Karus Therapeutics and currently in Phase I for Mantle Cell Lymphoma. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Mantle Cell Lymphoma have a 76% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how KA-2237’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.

KA-2237 overview

KA-2237 is under development for the treatment of haematological tumors, including relapsed or refractory B-cell lymphomas including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia or small lymphocytic lymphoma and marginal zone b-cell lymphoma. It is administered through the oral route. The drug candidate acts by targeting both phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) isoforms such as p110 delta and beta. It was also under development for the treatment of inflammation and solid tumors. It was also under development for the treatment of Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia .

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

GlobalData’s Likelihood of Approval analytics tool dynamically assesses and predicts how likely a drug will move to the next stage in its clinical pathway (PTSR), as well as how likely the drug will be approved (LoA). This is based on a proprietary algorithm built from the drugs’ sales forecast, regulatory milestones, cost forecasts, WACC rate and other proprietary data sources found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
