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.

Squamous Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer overview

Squamous cell carcinoma is a subtype of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) originating in the squamous cells lining the airways. It constitutes about 25-30% of all lung cancers. Linked to smoking, symptoms include persistent cough, chest pain, and breathing difficulties. Diagnosis involves imaging, biopsy, and staging to determine the cancer’s extent. Treatment options depend on the stage but may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or targeted therapies. Prognosis varies based on factors like stage and overall health. Research continues to explore new therapies and personalized approaches for improved outcomes in squamous NSCLC patients.
