Mirdametinib is a small molecule commercialized by SpringWorks Therapeutics, with a leading Phase II program in Neurofibromatoses Type I (Von Recklinghausen’s Disease). According to Globaldata, it is involved in 15 clinical trials, of which 5 were completed, 6 are ongoing, 1 is planned, and 3 were terminated. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of Mirdametinib’s valuation in its risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). Buy the model here.

The revenue for Mirdametinib is expected to reach an annual total of $157 mn by 2033 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.

Mirdametinib Overview

mirdametinib (PD-0325901) is under development for the treatment of neurofibromatosis type-1 (NF1)-associated plexiform neurofibromas (PNs), non-small cell lung cancer, low-grade glioma, colorectal cancer, ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer, thyroid cancer, melanoma, pancreatic cancer, and other solid tumors. The therapeutic candidate is administered through oral route. PD0325901 is a bioavailable, synthetic organic molecule targeting mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK/ERK kinase or MEK) with potential antineoplastic activity.  It was under development for the treatment of colon cancer, breast cancer, melanoma and non-small cell lung cancer. It is under development for the treatment of ER+ metastatic breast cancer and advanced solid tumors. It acts by targeting MEK1 or MEK2.

The gold standard of business intelligence.

Blending expert knowledge with cutting-edge technology, GlobalData’s unrivalled proprietary data will enable you to decode what’s happening in your market. You can make better informed decisions and gain a future-proof advantage over your competitors.


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, drug margins and company expenses. 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 valuation, 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.
