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.

Varicellovirus Infections overview

Varicella-like viruses are cell-associated herpesviruses of the genus Varicellovirus, related to the human virus. It is an alpha herpes virus that causes chickenpox and herpes zoster (shingles). Varicella is characterized by a maculopapular, vesicular rash that can be pruritic and evolves into dried crusts (scabs) over a 3- to 7-day period. Reactivation of the dormant virus results in the characteristic painful dermatomal rash of herpes zoster, which is often followed by pain in the distribution of the rash (postherpetic neuralgia). In children, chicken pox manifests with fever and irritability, followed by vesicular rash eruption. The rash eventually crusts and heals. Chicken pox also can occur in adults without natural or vaccine induced immunity to VZV.
