Palmidrol is under clinical development by FSD Pharma and currently in Phase I for Fibromyalgia (Fibromyalgia Syndrome). According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Fibromyalgia (Fibromyalgia Syndrome) have an 80% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how Palmidrol’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.

Palmidrol overview

Palmidrol (FSD-201) is under development for the treatment of fibromyalgia.

Ultra-micronized palmitoylethanolamide (UM-PEA) was under development for the treatment of musculoskeletal nociplastic pain associated with idiopathic mast cell activation syndrome (disorder). The drug candidate acts by targeting cannabinoid receptor I and cannabinoid receptor II. The drug candidate is an ultra-micronized palmitoylethanolamide (fatty base) which exerts the desired therapeutic effect at lower doses. It is administered through oral route.
