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.

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome overview

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) occurs when fluid fills up the air sacs in lungs. This leads to low oxygen levels in the blood. Common causes of ARDS include sepsis, inhalation of harmful substances, severe pneumonia, and head or chest injury. Signs and symptoms of ARDS include severe shortness of breath, labored and unusually rapid breathing, low blood pressure, confusion, and extreme tiredness.
