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.

Natural Killer Cell Lymphomas overview

Natural killer (NK) cell lymphomas are a rare and aggressive type of lymphoma arising from a subset of white blood cells called natural killer cells, which are part of the body’s immune system. These lymphomas can affect various organs and tissues in the body. NK cell lymphomas are categorized into two main types. Extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type (ENKTL) is a subtype that primarily affects the upper respiratory tract, particularly the nasal cavity and sinuses. ENKTL is more prevalent in certain geographical areas, particularly in East Asia and Central/South America. It is associated with the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in many cases. Aggressive NK cell leukemia is a rare and highly aggressive form of leukemia where abnormal NK cells proliferate in the blood and bone marrow, leading to a rapid progression of symptoms. Symptoms of NK cell lymphomas vary depending on the location and stage of the disease but can include fever, enlarged lymph nodes, nasal congestion or ulceration (in the case of ENKTL), skin lesions, night sweats, weight loss, and overall deterioration in health.
