Lemborexant is a Small Molecule owned by Eisai, and is involved in 35 clinical trials, of which 26 were completed, 7 are ongoing, and 2 are planned.

Lemborexant (E-2006) is a dual orexin receptor antagonist (DORA). It induces sleep by non-selectively antagonizing the OX1 and OX2 receptors. Orexin maintains a long, consolidated waking period by activating waking monoaminergic and cholinergic neurons in the hypothalamus and brainstem regions. The inhibition of orexin receptor leads to inhibition of complication associated with insomnia.

The revenue for Lemborexant is expected to reach a total of $7.1bn through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in a clinical process. View the complete picture with the Lemborexant NPV Report.

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, potential applicable patients, drug margins, company expenses, and pricing estimates. 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 rNPV, 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.
