Pritelivir mesylate is under clinical development by AiCuris Anti-infective Cures and currently in Phase III for Simplexvirus (HSV) Infections. According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for Simplexvirus (HSV) Infections have a 50% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Pre-Registration. GlobalData’s report assesses how Pritelivir mesylate’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.
