Pemvidutide is under clinical development by Altimmune and currently in Phase II for Obesity. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Obesity have a 28% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Pemvidutide’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.

Pemvidutide overview

Pemvidutide (ALT-801) is under development for the treatment of obesity, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and type 2 diabetes. The drug candidate is administered subcutaneously. It is a synthetic peptide and is an analogue of oxyntomodulin. The drug candidate targets GLP-1 and glucagon receptor. It is developed based on EuPort technology.

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.
