According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Oropharyngeal Cancer have a 61% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Peltopepimut-s’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.
Peltopepimut-s (ISA-101) is under development for the treatment of human Papillomavirus (HPV)-16 associated cancers including oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC), cervical, vulvar vaginal, anal, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and penile cancer.
