Olorofim is a Small Molecule owned by F2G, and is involved in 15 clinical trials, of which 12 were completed, and 3 are ongoing.

Olorofim (F-901318) acts as DHODH inhibitor. DHODH is an enzyme involved in the de novo production of pyrimidines required for nucleic acid synthesis in fungus and catalyzes the oxidation of dihydroorotate to orotate. The drug candidate by inhibiting the enzyme prevents pyrimidine biosynthesis and blocks fungal growth thereby alleviates the condition.

The revenue for Olorofim is expected to reach a total of $413m through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in a clinical process. View the complete picture with the Olorofim NPV Report.

Olorofim is originated and owned by F2G. Shionogi & is the other company associated in development or marketing of Olorofim.

Olorofim Overview

Olorofim (F-901318) is under development for the treatment of invasive fungal infections, such as invasive aspergillosis (including azole-resistant strains), scedosporiosis, lomentosporiosis, fusariosis, scopulariopsosis, and coccidioidomycosis. The drug candidate is formulated as tablet and administered through oral route and also administered through intravenous route. The drug candidate belongs to the orotomide class which acts by targeting dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (DHODH). The drug candidate is developed based on MycoBank technology. It was also under development for the treatment of aspergillosis as the intravenous formulation.

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, potential applicable patients, drug margins, company expenses, and pricing estimates. 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 rNPV, 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.
