MVT-5873 is a monoclonal antibody commercialized by BioNTech, with a leading Phase II program in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer. According to Globaldata, it is involved in 3 clinical trials, of which 1 was completed, 1 is ongoing, and 1 was terminated. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of MVT-5873’s valuation in its risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). Buy the model here.

The revenue for MVT-5873 is expected to reach an annual total of $28 mn by 2037 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.

MVT-5873 Overview

MVT-5873 is under development for the treatment of metastatic adenocarcinoma of the pancreas, cholangiocarcinoma, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma and metastatic colorectal cancer.. It is administered intravenously. It is a recombinant human IgG antibody that acts by targeting carbohydrate antigen sialyl-Lewis(a), also known as CA19.9. The drug candidate is developed based on human antibody discovery platform.

It was also under development for the treatment of CA19-9 positive malignancies including gastrointestinal cancer (colon cancer), non-small cell lung cancers, small cell lung cancers.

BioNTech Overview

BioNTech is a biotechnology company that develops immunotherapies for cancer and infectious diseases. It is investigating mRNA therapeutics, engineered cell therapies, antibodies and small molecule immunomodulators to treat advanced melanoma, solid tumors, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), prostate, head and neck, ovarian, pancreatic and triple negative breast cancer. The company is also evaluating treatments for HIV, tuberculosis, influenza and covid-19. BioNTech utilizes FixVac and iNeST technology platforms to discover and develop cancer immunotherapies targeting antigens and neoantigens.

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.
