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.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea overview

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is defined by episodes of either complete collapse or partial collapse of the airway during sleep, accompanied by a reduction in oxygen saturation or awakening from sleep. This disruption leads to fragmented and nonrestorative sleep. The implications of OSA extend to various aspects of health, including cardiovascular well-being, mental health, overall quality of life, and safety while driving fatigue and reduced productivity. Moreover, OSA poses risks to driving safety, as drowsiness from poor sleep can lead to accidents, emphasizing the need for early diagnosis and effective management.
