Luxeptinib is a small molecule commercialized by Aptose Biosciences, with a leading Phase I program in Relapsed Acute Myeloid Leukemia. According to Globaldata, it is involved in 2 clinical trials, which are ongoing. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of Luxeptinib’s valuation in its risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). Buy the model here.
The revenue for Luxeptinib is expected to reach an annual total of $56 mn by 2034 globally based off GlobalData’s Expiry Model. The drug’s revenue forecasts along with estimated costs are used to measure the value of an investment opportunity in that drug, otherwise known as net present value (NPV). Applying the drug’s phase transition success rate to remaining R&D costs and likelihood of approval (LoA) to sales related costs provides a risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). The rNPV model is a more conservative valuation measure that accounts for the risk of a drug in clinical development failing to progress.
CG-806 is under development for the treatment of relasped/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), r/r chronic lymphocytic leukemia, small lymphocytic lymphoma, Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia, mantle cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. It is a pan-FLT3/BTK inhibitor and act by targeting FLT3 (FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3) and brew button tyrosine kinase (bruton tyrosine kinase, BTK) along with CSF1R, PDGFRα, TRK, AURK, others. It is administered through the oral route. The drug candidate is developed based on a combination of soluble protein solution (SPS), structural chemo proteomics (SCP), structural-based drug factory (SDF) platforms.
