MTL-CEBPA is under clinical development by Mina Therapeutics and currently in Phase I for Neuroendocrine Tumors. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Neuroendocrine Tumors have a 74% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how MTL-CEBPA’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.

MTL-CEBPA overview

MTL-CEBPA is under development for the treatment of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), liver failure and  solid tumors including hepatocellular carcinoma, breast cancer, lung cancer, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer, gall bladder cancer, neuroendocrine tumor, fallopian tube cancer, renal cancer, malignant mesothelioma, melanoma, glioblastoma multiforme, cholangiocarcinoma and mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPS I) hurler syndrome. The therapeutic candidate is administered through intravenous route. It is a SMARTICLES liposomal formulation of MTL-501. MTL-501 is a short activating RNA targeting the CEBPA gene. It is developed based on SMARTICLES delivery technology. SMARTICLES are amphoteric liposomes composed of combinations of lipids having anionic and cationic groups that work together to enable cell uptake. It was under development for the treatment of liver cirrhosis.

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

GlobalData’s Likelihood of Approval analytics tool dynamically assesses and predicts how likely a drug will move to the next stage in its clinical pathway (PTSR), as well as how likely the drug will be approved (LoA). This is based on a proprietary algorithm built from the drugs’ sales forecast, regulatory milestones, cost forecasts, WACC rate and other proprietary data sources found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
