Ranibizumab biosimilar is under clinical development by Xbrane Biopharma and currently in Phase III for Diabetic Retinopathy. According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for Diabetic Retinopathy have a 57% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Pre-Registration. GlobalData’s report assesses how Ranibizumab biosimilar’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.

Ranibizumab biosimilar overview

Ranibizumab (Ximluci) is a humanized monoclonal antibody fragment and a recombinant humanized IgO 1 isotype. It is formulated as a solution for the intravitreal route of administration. Ximluci is indicated in adults for the treatment of the treatment of neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration, visual impairment due to diabetic macular edema, proliferative diabetic retinopathy, visual impairment due to macular edema secondary to retinal vein occlusion, and for treatment of visual impairment due to choroidal neovascularization.
