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.

Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma overview

Malignant pleural mesothelioma is a rare cancer of the lining around the lungs, called the pleura. It is caused by asbestos fibers. After inhalation, the fibers can embed in the pleura, causing inflammation and scarring. Over time, these processes can lead to the development of mesothelioma tumors. The most common symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include difficulty breathing, swelling, back pain, and nerve pain
