Ranibizumab is under clinical development by F. Hoffmann-La Roche and currently in Phase III for Retinopathy Of Prematurity. According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for Retinopathy Of Prematurity have a 100% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Pre-Registration. GlobalData’s report assesses how Ranibizumab’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 (Lucentis, Patizra) is a humanized monoclonal antibody fragment and a recombinant humanized IgO 1 isotype designed to bind to and inhibit vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF-A). It is formulated as an injection for ophthalmic intravitreal use. Lucentis is indicated for the treatment of patients with neovascular (Wet) age-related macular degeneration, macular edema following retinal vein occlusion (RVO) and diabetic macular edema. Lucentis also indicated to treat patients with visual impairment due to choroidal neovascularization (CNV) associated with causes other than neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD), or secondary to pathologic myopia (PM), for the treatment of patients with myopic choroidal neovascularization (mCNV), a complication of severe near-sightedness that can lead to blindness, for the monthly treatment of all forms of diabetic retinopathy in people who have been diagnosed either with or without diabetic macular edema (DME), a complication of diabetic retinopathy that causes swelling in the back of the eye and also indicated for the treatment of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) with zone I (stage1+, 2+, 3 or 3+), zone II (stage 3+) or AP-ROP (aggressive posterior ROP) disease in preterm infants, also for the treatment of proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR).
Lucentis was also under development for uveitic cystoid macular edema, corneal neovascularization, polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy and pterygia neovascularization.
