MGC-026 is under clinical development by MacroGenics and currently in Phase I for Kidney Cancer (Renal Cell Cancer). According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Kidney Cancer (Renal Cell Cancer) have a 75% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how MGC-026’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.

MGC-026 overview

MGC-026 is under development for the treatment of advanced or metastatic solid tumors including squamous cell cancer (SCC) of the head and neck, esophageal squamous cell cancer, squamous and non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, bladder cancer, sarcoma, endometrial cancer, melanoma, castration resistant prostate cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer gastric or gastroesophageal cancer, pancreatic carcinoma, clear cell renal cell cancer or hepatocellular cancer. It acts by targeting B7-H3 and is being developed based on GlycoConnect antibody conjugation technology, HydraSpace polar spacer technology, and toxSYN linker-payloads (SYNtecan E, SYNeamicin D and SYNeamicin G). It is administered through intravenous route.
