Lutetium Lu 177 dotatate is under clinical development by Advanced Accelerator Applications and currently in Phase II for Neuroblastoma. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Neuroblastoma have a 21% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Lutetium Lu 177 dotatate’s drug-specific PTSR and Likelihood of Approval (LoA) scores compare to the indication benchmarks. Buy the report here.

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.

Lutetium Lu 177 dotatate overview

Lutetium Lu-177 dotatate or Lutetium (177Lu) oxodotreotide (Lutathera) is a radiolabelled peptide, acts as an antitumor agent. It is formulated as injectable solution for intravenous route of administration.
