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.

Pyrotinib overview

Pyrotinib maleate (Irene) is an anti-neoplastic agent. It is formulated as film coated tablet for oral administration. Pyrotinib maleate is indicated in combination with capecitabine for the treatment of patients with recurrent or metastatic breast cancer, who are positive for epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) and have not previously received or received trastuzumab.
