Oxycodone SR is under clinical development by Avecho Biotechnology and currently in Phase II for Postherpetic Neuralgia. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Postherpetic Neuralgia have an 18% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Oxycodone SR’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.

Oxycodone SR overview

Oxycodone (sustained release) or TPM oxycodone (Targeted Penetration Matrix oxycodone) is under development for the treatment of postherpetic neuralgia and localized pain. It is formulated as a patch and administered through transdermal. The patch acts by providing sustained-release of oxycodone into the bloodstream. The drug candidate is based on TPM (Targeted Penetration Matrix) technology. It was under development for osteoarthritic pain.

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

GlobalData’s Likelihood of Approval analytics tool dynamically assesses and predicts how likely a drug will move to the next stage in clinical development (PTSR), as well as how likely the drug will be approved (LoA). This is based on a combination of machine learning and a proprietary algorithm to process data points from various databases found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
