Oxytocin is under clinical development by OptiNose and currently in Phase II for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have a 52% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Oxytocin’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.

Oxytocin overview

Oxytocin (OPN-300) is under development for the treatment of autism and Prader-Willi Syndrome. The drug candidate is delivered through nasal route. The drug candidate is developed based on OptiNose bi-directional breath powered delivery technology. This technology utilizes the normal breath of the patient in order to administer the drug beyond the nasal valve into the targeted areas of the nasal cavity.

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 its clinical pathway (PTSR), as well as how likely the drug will be approved (LoA). This is based on a proprietary algorithm built from the drugs’ sales forecast, regulatory milestones, cost forecasts, WACC rate and other proprietary data sources found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
