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.

Pulmonary Fibrosis overview

Pulmonary fibrosis is a lung disease that causes lung scarring and shortness of breath. It can be caused due to drugs, radiation, environmental factors, autoimmune, occupational (asbestos, coal dust, silica) and cigarette smoking. Symptoms include shortness of breath particularly during exercise, dry hacking cough, fast/shallow breathing, gradual unintended weight loss, tiredness, aching joints and muscles, clubbing (widening and rounding) of the tips of the fingers or toes.

GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article. 

GlobalData’s Likelihood of Approval analytics tool dynamically assesses and predicts how likely a drug will move to the next stage in clinical development (PTSR), as well as how likely the drug will be approved (LoA). This is based on a combination of machine learning and a proprietary algorithm to process data points from various databases found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
