NKX-019 is under clinical development by Nkarta and currently in Phase I for Refractory Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Refractory Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) have a 73% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how NKX-019’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.

NKX-019 overview

NKX-019 is under development for the treatment of B-cell malignancies including non-Hodgkin lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, relapsed or refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL/SLL), follicular lymphoma, marginal zone b-cell lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, waldenstrom macroglobulinemia (lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma), diffuse large b-cell lymphoma,acute lymphoblastic leukemia and systemic lupus erythematosus. The therapeutic candidate (CAR-NK) constitutes of genetically manipulated allogeneic NK cells which express a chimeric antigen receptor targeting tumor cells expressing B lymphocyte antigen CD19, transduced by gamma-retrovirus. It is administered intravenously.
