PXL-770 is under clinical development by Poxel and currently in Phase I for Adrenoleukodystrophy (X-Linked Adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD)). According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Adrenoleukodystrophy (X-Linked Adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD)) have a 71% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how PXL-770’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.

PXL-770 overview

PXL-770 is under development for the treatment of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), non alcoholic fatty liver disease,adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN) form of X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD or ALD), diabetic nephropathy, polycystic kidney disease and diastolic cardiac dysfunction. The drug candidate is administered orally in the form of capsule. It is a new chemical entity. It acts by targeting adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK). It was also under development for the treatment of type II diabetes and obesity.

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.
