Pemigatinib is under clinical development by Incyte and currently in Phase II for Gastric Cancer. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Gastric Cancer have a 32% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Pemigatinib’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.

Pemigatinib overview

Pemigatinib (Pemazyre) is acts as an anti neoplastic agent. It is formulated as tablets for oral route of administration. Pemazyre is indicated for adults with certain types of previously treated, locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinaoma and myeloproliferative disorder with with fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 (FGFR1) rearrangement.

Pemigatinib (INCB-54828) is under development for the treatment of newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia, cholangiocarcinoma, gastric cancer, adenocarcinoma of the gastroesophageal junction, non-muscle invasive bladder cancer, metastatic or unresectable urothelial carcinoma, advanced malignancies such as solid tumors including squamous non-small cell lung cancer, gastric cancer, gastroesophageal junction carcinoma, bile duct cancer, urothelial carcinoma, breast/endometrial cancer, myeloproliferative neoplasms (myeloid/lymphoid neoplasms),  bladder cancer, colorectal cancer, recurrent glioblastoma, astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, pilocytic astrocytoma, esophageal carcinoma and metastatic or surgically unresectable adeno squamous carcinoma of the pancreas. It is a small molecule administered orally in the form of tablet. It targets FGFR1, FGFR2 and FGFR3 kinases.

It was under development for the treatment of urothelial carcinoma as first line therapy, multiple myeloma.

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.
