Nanatinostat is a Small Molecule owned by Viracta Therapeutics, and is involved in 5 clinical trials, of which 2 were completed, and 3 are ongoing.

Nanatinostat (VRx-3996) is a second-generation hydroxamic acid-based inhibitor of histone deacetylase (HDAC) with potential anti-neoplastic activity. CHR-3996 is a class I HDAC selective inhibitor. This inhibition results an accumulation of highly acetylated histones, the induction of chromatin remodeling, and the selective transcription of tumor suppressor genes. These events may result in the inhibition of tumor cell division and the induction of tumor cell apoptosis. This agent upregulate HSP70 and down-regulate anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 proteins more substantially than some first-generation HDAC inhibitors.

The revenue for Nanatinostat is expected to reach a total of $3bn 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 Nanatinostat NPV Report.

Nanatinostat was originated by Chroma Therapeutics and is currently owned by Viracta Therapeutics.

Nanatinostat Overview

Nanatinostat (VRx-3996) is under development for the treatment for EBV-associated cancers including solid tumors like nasopharyngeal carcinoma, plasmablastic lymphoma, gastric cancer, nasopharyngeal cancer, colon cancer, natural killer cell lymphomas, peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCL), gastric carcinoma, leiomyosarcoma, sarcoma, angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma, post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder, cutaneous T cell lymphoma, diffuse large B cell lymphoma, systemic lupus erythematosus, latent viral infections and Hodgkin lymphoma. It is a small molecule administered orally. The drug is developed based on Esterase Sensitive Motif (ESM) technology.

It was also under development for the treatment of solid tumor and relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.

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.
