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.

Lipid Disorders overview

Abnormal levels of triglycerides and LDL in the blood. A buildup of LDLs and triglycerides can cause fatty materials to accumulate in the body’s tissues, including in the arteries leading to atherosclerosis. Increased levels of these fat are referred to as hyperlipidemia or dyslipidemia. Genetic hierarchy, lifestyle changes, obesity are common causes. Symptoms include yellowish, fatty bumps or yellow creases on the skin known as xanthoma or yellow lumps in the cornea of eyes. Diagnosed by lipid profile test. Statins are first line therapy then Cholesterol inhibitors, bile acid sequestrants and fibrates.
