Obecabtagene autoleucel is a gene-modified cell therapy commercialized by Autolus Therapeutics, with a leading Phase II program in B-Cell Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia). According to Globaldata, it is involved in 3 clinical trials, which are ongoing. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of Obecabtagene autoleucel’s valuation in its risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). Buy the model here.

The revenue for Obecabtagene autoleucel is expected to reach an annual total of $148 mn by 2036 in the US based off GlobalData’s Expiry Model. The drug’s revenue forecasts along with estimated costs are used to measure the value of an investment opportunity in that drug, otherwise known as net present value (NPV). Applying the drug’s phase transition success rate to remaining R&D costs and likelihood of approval (LoA) to sales related costs provides a risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). The rNPV model is a more conservative valuation measure that accounts for the risk of a drug in clinical development failing to progress.

Obecabtagene autoleucel Overview

Obecabtagene autoleucel is under development for the treatment of relapsed or refractory CD19 positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia in adults and pediatrics, diffuse large B cell lymphoma, B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, chronic lymphocytic lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, marginal zone lymphoma, primary CNS lymphoma. It is administered as an intravenous infusion. The therapeutic candidate constitutes patient's own T cells transduced with lentiviral vector that have been genetically modified to express CD19CAT-41BBZ targeting CD19.

GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, drug margins and company expenses. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate valuation, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA) and phase transition success rate (PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
