Molgramostim is a Recombinant Protein owned by Savara, and is involved in 6 clinical trials, of which 4 were completed, and 2 are ongoing.

Molgramostim activates GM-CSF receptor. It binds to specific cell surface receptors, modulates the proliferation and differentiation of a variety of hematopoietic progenitor cells with some specificity towards stimulation of leukocyte production. This agent also promotes antigen presentation, up-regulates antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), and increases interleukin-2-mediated lymphokine-activated killer cell function and it also augment host anti-tumoral immunity.

The revenue for Molgramostim is expected to reach a total of $1.5bn 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 Molgramostim NPV Report.

Molgramostim Overview

Molgramostim (Molgradex) is under development for the treatment of autoimmune pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (aPAP), acute respiratory distress syndrome, coronavirus disease 2019 caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and non-tuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM) lung infections. It is administered via inhalational route as a solution. Molgramostim is a recombinant human granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF). The drug candidate acts by targeting granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) receptor. The drug development is developed based on veltis technology. It was also under development for the treatment of cystic fibrosis-related lung infection (CF), bronchiectasis (BE) and ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP).

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.
