Nipocalimab is under clinical development by Johnson & Johnson and currently in Phase III for Myasthenia Gravis. According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for Myasthenia Gravis have a 70% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Pre-Registration. GlobalData’s report assesses how Nipocalimab’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.

Nipocalimab overview

Nipocalimab (M-281) is under development for the treatment of moderate to severe bullous pemphigoid (BP), moderate to severe active rheumatoid arthritis (RA), chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT), systemic lupus erythematosus, immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy, erythroblastosis fetalis (hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (HDFN)), generalized myasthenia gravis, idiopathic inflammatory myopathies and lupus nephritis. It is administered through intravenous and subcutaneous routes which is formulated as a concentrate solution. The drug candidate acts by targeting neonatal Fc receptor ((FcRn). It is a new molecular entity (NME).
