Patiromer sorbitex calcium is under clinical development by Vifor Pharma Management and currently in the Phase II in clinical pathway. The characteristics of the clinical trial as well as other attributes related to the drug, regulations, and company play a fundamental role in ensuring the likelihood of transition that the drug moves from its current development stage to next.

According to GlobalData, the latest event to affect Patiromer sorbitex calcium’s likelihood of approval (LoA) and phase transition for Resistant Hypertension took place on 05 Sep 2022, which decreased the likelihood that the drug progresses to the next phase in its clinical pathway and decreased the likelihood of final approval for this indication.

GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of this assessment in their Patiromer sorbitex calcium Likelihood of Approval (LoA) and Phase Transition Success Rate (PTSR) Report.
