Mivavotinib citrate is a Small Molecule owned by Calithera Biosciences, and is involved in 1 clinical trial, which is ongoing.

Mivavotinib citrate (TAK-659) is a dual FLT3/syk inhibitor. TAK-659 inhibits the activity of syk, which abrogates downstream B-cell receptor (BCR) signaling and leads to an inhibition of B-cell activation, chemotaxis, adhesion and proliferation. Syk is expressed in hematopoietic tissues and is often overexpressed in hematopoietic malignancies, less chemotaxis toward tissue homing chemokines facilitates treatment of cancer.

The revenue for Mivavotinib citrate is expected to reach a total of $4.1bn 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 Mivavotinib citrate NPV Report.

Mivavotinib citrate was originated by Millennium Pharmaceuticals and is currently owned by Calithera Biosciences.

Mivavotinib citrate Overview

Mivavotinib citrate (TAK-659) is under development for the treatment of gastric cancer and relapsed or refractory acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). It is administered through oral route. It acts by targeting Syk and FLT3 inhibitor. It was also under development for the treatment of advanced solid tumors such as colon cancer, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer, metastatic triple-negative breast cancer, metastatic non-small cell lung cancer, metastatic or recurrent head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, hematological malignancies including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma (iNHL), marginal zone lymphoma, Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia, follicular lymphoma, post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) and mantle cell lymphoma.

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.
