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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) overview

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental condition characterized by challenges in social interaction, communication, and repetitive behaviors. Symptoms range from mild to severe, forming a spectrum. Individuals with ASD may have difficulties in understanding social cues, expressing emotions, and engaging in reciprocal conversations. Sensory sensitivities are common, affecting responses to stimuli. Early intervention and tailored support can enhance communication and social skills, promoting better adaptation to daily life. While the exact cause is unclear, a combination of genetic and environmental factors is believed to contribute. Embracing neurodiversity fosters acceptance and understanding of individuals with ASD.
