Miransertib mesylate is A Small Molecule owned by Merck & Co, and is involved in 5 clinical trials, of which 3 were completed, and 2 are ongoing.

Miransertib mesylate (ARQ-092) is an inhibitor of the serine/threonine protein kinase AKT (protein kinase B) with antineoplastic activity. The AKT signalling pathway is often deregulated in cancer and is associated with tumor cell proliferation, survival and migration. It binds to and inhibits the activity of AKT in A non-ATP competitive manner, which results in the inhibition of the PI3K/AKT signalling pathway. This leads to the reduction in tumor cell proliferation and the induction of tumor cell apoptosis.

The revenue for Miransertib mesylate is expected to reach A total of $89m through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in A clinical process. View the complete picture with the Miransertib mesylate NPV Report.

Miransertib mesylate was originated by Daiichi Sankyo and ArQule and is currently owned by Merck & Co.

Miransertib mesylate Overview

Miransertib mesylate (ARQ-092) is under development for the treatment of proteus syndrome, PIK3CA-related overgrowth spectrum (PROS), sickle cell disease, solid tumors including ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer, lymphoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, melanoma and other rare diseases. The drug candidate is A new molecular entity administered orally. It acts on protein kinase B (PKB or Akt). It is developed by using AKIP technology platform. The technology is A Kinase inhibitor platform that is based on A novel binding mode that leads to inhibition of target kinases by small molecules that do not compete with adenosine triphosphate (ATP) for binding. It was also under development for the treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumor, cervical cancer, breast cancer, colorectal cancer and neuroendocrine cancer.

GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, potential applicable patients, drug margins, company expenses, and pricing estimates. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate rNPV, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA)and phase transition success rate(PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
