Octreotide LA is under clinical development by Camurus and currently in Phase III for Neuroendocrine Gastroenteropancreatic Tumors (GEP-NET). According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for Neuroendocrine Gastroenteropancreatic Tumors (GEP-NET) have a 100% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Pre-Registration. GlobalData’s report assesses how Octreotide LA’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.

Octreotide LA overview

Octreotide long-acting (CAM-2029) is under development for the treatment of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumor, polycystic kidney disease, polycystic liver disease, acromegaly and neuroendocrine tumors with carcinoid symptoms.
