According to Globaldata, it is involved in 3 clinical trials, of which 1 was completed, 1 is ongoing, and 1 is planned. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of Ladilen’s valuation in its risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). Buy the model here.
The revenue for Ladilen is expected to reach an annual total of $10 mn by 2028 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.
RPL-201 is under development for the treatment of leukocyte adhesion deficiency (LAD) type 1. The therapeutic candidate constitutes patient-derived hematopoietic stem cells modified with a lentiviral vector containing the CD18 gene. It is administered through intravenous route. It acts by targeting integrin beta 2.
