Praliciguat is under clinical development by Akebia Therapeutics and currently in Phase I for Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) does not have sufficient historical data to build an indication benchmark PTSR for Phase I. GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to create drugs-specific PTSR and LoA in the Praliciguat LoA Report. 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.
