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.

Lupus Erythematosus overview

Lupus erythematosus refers to a group of autoimmune diseases where the immune system attacks healthy tissues, leading to inflammation and damage in various parts of the body. The most common forms are systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE). SLE can affect multiple organs, causing a wide range of symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain, skin rashes, fever, and complications involving the kidneys, heart, or nervous system. DLE primarily affects the skin, presenting as red, scaly, or coin-shaped lesions on the face, scalp, or ears. Diagnosis involves medical history, physical examinations, blood tests, and sometimes skin biopsies. Management includes medications to control inflammation, immune-suppressants, lifestyle adjustments, and careful monitoring to alleviate symptoms and prevent flare-ups in individuals with lupus erythematosus.
