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.

NEO-212 overview

NEO-212 is under development for the treatment of astrocytoma, glioblastoma, uncontrolled brain metastasis in patients with select solid tumors, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, melanoma and metastatic breast cancer. The drug candidate is administered through the intranasal and oral route. NEO-212 is a new chemical entity.
