Ketoprofen is under clinical development by Achelios Therapeutics and currently in the Phase I and Phase II in clinical pathway. The characteristics of the clinical trial as well as other attributes related to the drug, regulations, and company play a fundamental role in ensuring the likelihood of transition that the drug moves from its current development stage to next.

According to GlobalData, the latest event to affect Ketoprofen’s likelihood of approval (LoA) and phase transition for Osteoarthritis took place on 20 Nov 2020, which increased the likelihood that the drug progresses to the next phase in its clinical pathway.

GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of this assessment in their Ketoprofen Likelihood of Approval (LoA) and Phase Transition Success Rate (PTSR) Report.
