KB-0742 is under clinical development by Kronos Bio and currently in Phase II for Solid Tumor. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Solid Tumor have a 10% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how KB-0742’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.

KB-0742 overview

KB-0742 is under development for the treatment of castration resistant prostate cancer, soft tissue sarcoma and MYC-dependent acute myeloid leukemia, solid tumors, ovarian cancer, chordoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, soft tissue sarcoma, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), small-cell lung cancer (SCLC), triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), gastric cancer, gastroesophageal (GE) junction carcinomas, diffuse large B-cell carcinoma, NUT midline carcinoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma, neuroblastoma tumors, ewing sarcoma (EW) and alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS).
