NanoFlu is under clinical development by Novavax and currently in Phase II for Seasonal Influenza. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Seasonal Influenza have a 32% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how NanoFlu’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.

NanoFlu overview

Nanoflu is under development for the prevention of influenza A strains including H1N1, H3N2 and influenza B virus infections and seasonal influenza. It is administered through intramuscular route. It acts by targeting hemagglutinin. The vaccine candidate is a recombinant trivalent nanoparticle influenza vaccine with matrix-M1 adjuvant (NanoFlu) developed based on recombinant protein nanoparticle technology.

Novavax overview

Novavax is a biotechnology company that discovers, develops and commercializes vaccines to prevent a wide range of infectious diseases. The company develops genetically-engineered vaccine candidates harnessing three-dimensional nanostructures of recombinant proteins critical to disease pathogenesis. Its pipeline products include NVX-CoV2373 for coronavirus, NanoFlu for seasonal influenza, ResVax for respiratory syncytial syndrome and vaccines indicated for the prevention of Ebola virus, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). It is also developing proprietary immune-stimulating saponin-based adjuvants. The company operates research and manufacturing facilities in Gaithersburg, Maryland; Uppsala, Sweden; and Bohumil, Czech Republic. Novavax is headquartered in Gaithersburg, Maryland, the US.

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.
