Pegaspargase is under clinical development by Les Laboratoires Servier and currently in Phase III for B-Cell Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia). According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for B-Cell Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia) have an 80% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Pre-Registration. GlobalData’s report assesses how Pegaspargase’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.

Pegaspargase overview

Pegaspargase (Oncaspar) is a modified version of the enzyme L-asparaginase, derived from E.coli, acts as anti-neoplastic agent. The product is based on customized PEGylation linker technology. It is formulated as pegylated injectable solution and lyophilized powder for intramuscular and intravenous route of administration. It is used for the first line treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) as well as for the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia in patients hypersensitive to native forms of L-asparaginase, in conjunction with other chemotherapeutic agents. Oncaspar is indicated as a component of antineoplastic combination therapy in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) in paediatric patients from birth to 18 years, and adult patients. Pegaspargase was under development for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia, solid tumors, relapsed or refractory T-cell lymphomas and lymphomas including non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

The drug candidate is under development for the treatment of B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, malignant lymphoma, down syndrome, B lineage lymphoblastic lymphoma.

The drug candidate (freeze dried) was under development for the treatment  T-Cell lymphomas and chronic myelocytic leukemia.
