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.

Retroviridae Infections overview

Retroviruses belong to a family of enveloped RNA viruses (Retroviridae) that infect vertebrates. A retrovirus is a type of virus that inserts a DNA copy of its RNA genome into the DNA of a host cell that it invades, thus changing the genome of that cell. The disease pathogenesis begins when HIV infects dendritic antigen processing cells (DC) in the oral and genital mucosa, attaching to these cells via a DC SIGN receptor on the cell surface. HIV particles are then transported to CD4+ helper T-cells where many cycles of infection are established in lymphoid tissues. Loss of function and death of CD4+ helper T-cells results in a drop in the helper T-cell count. Clinical disease progression is correlated with the loss of CD4+ cells and may take five to ten years to progress from primary infection to complete failure of the T-cell mediated immune response.
