Streptococcal Pneumonia is an indication for drug development with over 90 pipeline drugs currently active. According to GlobalData, preregistered drugs for Streptococcal Pneumonia have a 100% likelihood of approval (LoA) indication benchmark. GlobalData’s report assesses how phase transition success rate (PTSR) and likelihood of approval (LoA) scores for pipeline drugs in Streptococcal Pneumonia compared to historical benchmarks.

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.

Streptococcal Pneumonia overview

Streptococcus pneumoniae, or pneumococcus, is a Gram-positive spherical bacteria, and alpha-hemolytic member of the genus Streptococcus. Pneumococcal infections are present throughout the world and are most common during the winter and early spring months. Pneumoniae is prevalent in large part due to its colonizing ability in the nasopharynx. Almost 40-50% healthy children and 20-30% of healthy adults are carriers. With childhood conjugate vaccination for Streptococcus pneumoniae, the colonization frequency has decreased. Infection typically occurs after the colonization of the oropharynx and nasopharynx of healthy individuals. Inhalation of these colonies causes the infection of the lower airways. Infection typically will not result unless a patient has predisposed risk factors, a bolus of infectious cells, or colonization with a particularly virulent strain of S. pneumoniae. The Streptococcus pneumoniae cell capsule plays a major role in its pathogenesis; it is made up of polysaccharides and surrounds the cell wall. It helps in escaping phagocytosis by preventing the access of granulocytes to the underlying cell wall.
