Nizubaglustat is under clinical development by Azafaros and currently in Phase I for GM1 Gangliosidosis (Beta Galactosidase 1 Deficiency). According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for GM1 Gangliosidosis (Beta Galactosidase 1 Deficiency) does not have sufficient historical data to build an indication benchmark PTSR for Phase I. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to create drugs-specific PTSR and LoA in the Nizubaglustat LoA Report. 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.

Nizubaglustat overview

AZ-3102 (nizubaglustat) is under development for the treatment of GM1 and GM2 gangliosidosis (Sandhoff disease and Tay-Sachs) in adults and pediatrics, Niemann-Pick disease type C. The drug candidates are administered through oral route as capsule formulation. These acts by targeting GLCT1.

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 clinical development (PTSR), as well as how likely the drug will be approved (LoA). This is based on a combination of machine learning and a proprietary algorithm to process data points from various databases found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
