N-115 is under clinical development by EmphyCorp and currently in Pre-Registration for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. According to GlobalData, Pre-Registration drugs for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis have a 100% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Marketed. GlobalData’s report assesses how N-115’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.

N-115 overview

N-115 (sodium pyruvate) is under development for treatments of pulmonary diseases like pulmonary fibrosis, interstitial lung disease cystic fibrosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, Alzheimer's disease, allergic rhinitis, cancer, asthmatic bronchitis, long covid-19 andcovid-19. It is administered through nasal route. N-115 is a low molecular weight molecule. It acts as a reactive oxygen species (ROS) antagonists in the treatment of pulmonary diseases. It is an antioxidant and an inhaled alpha keto acid drug candidate. Sodium pyruvate reacts directly with oxygen radicals like hydrogen peroxide and peroxynitrite, where it neutralizes them and protecting DNA and other cellular components, such as glutathione, lipids and proteins. Sodium pyruvate regulated the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO) and also protected it from destruction by excess hydrogen peroxide.

It was also under treatment for influenza infections.
