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.

Oxycodone overview

Oxycodone (MRX-1OXT) is under development for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. The therapeutic candidate is administered  transdermally in the form of patch. Oxycodone is a semisynthetic opiate agonist derived from the opioid alkaloid that targets mu receptor. It acts as a narcotic analgesic. The development of the drug candidate is based on the Ionic liquid transdermal system (ILTS) technology.
