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.

Bone Metastasis overview

Bone metastasis occurs when cancer cells spread from their original site to the bones, leading to secondary tumors. It is most commonly associated with cancers of the breast, lung, prostate, and kidney. Bone metastases can cause severe pain, fractures, and other complications, significantly impacting a patient’s quality of life. Treatment aims to manage symptoms, slow the progression of the disease, and improve overall survival. Therapeutic approaches may include radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, bisphosphonates, or targeted therapies tailored to the specific type of cancer. Early detection and a multidisciplinary treatment approach are crucial in effectively managing bone metastasis and enhancing patient outcomes.
