NMS-088 is under clinical development by Nerviano Medical Sciences and currently in Phase II for Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia have a 21% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how NMS-088’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.

NMS-088 overview

NMS-088 is under development for the treatment of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia and relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML). It is a small molecule that acts selectively by targeting CSF1R, FLT3 and KIT kinases. It is administered through oral route. It was also under development for the treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST).
