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.

Medullary Thyroid Cancer overview

Medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) is a rare and aggressive type of thyroid cancer that originates from the C cells, which produce calcitonin, a hormone that regulates calcium levels in the blood. MTC accounts for 5-10% of all thyroid cancers and can be sporadic or inherited. Sporadic MTC occurs randomly, while inherited MTC is associated with a genetic condition called multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2). Symptoms of MTC may include a lump in the neck, hoarseness, diarrhea, and flushing. The main treatment for MTC is surgery to remove the thyroid gland and sometimes the nearby lymph nodes. Other treatments, such as radiation or medication, may be used depending on the stage and spread of the cancer. Early detection and treatment of MTC can improve the prognosis and quality of life of patients.
