Ravulizumab LA is under clinical development by Alexion Pharmaceuticals and currently in Phase III for Dermatomyositis. According to GlobalData, Phase III drugs for Dermatomyositis have a 20% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Pre-Registration. GlobalData’s report assesses how Ravulizumab LA’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.

Ravulizumab LA overview

Ravulizumab (Ultomiris) is a humanized monoclonal antibody. It is formulated as solution and concentrate solution (long acting) for intravenous route of administration. Ultromiris is indicated for the treatment of neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD), paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), in adults and pediatric patients one month of age and older. Ultomiris is also indicated for the treatment of adults and pediatric patients with atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) to inhibit complement-mediated thrombotic microangiopathy. Ultomiris is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with generalised myasthenia gravis (gMG) who are anti-acetylcholine receptor (AChR) antibody-positive and whose symptoms are difficult to control with high-dose intravenous immunoglobulin therapy (IVIg) or plasmapheresis.

(ALXN-1210, ultomiris) is under development for the treatment of generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG), primary progressive multiple sclerosis, glomerulonephritis-IgA nephropathy (Berger's disease), cardiac surgery-associated acute kidney injury, atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) pediatric, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, dermatomyositis, thrombotic microangiopathy. It is a next-generation Soliris (eculizumab). It is administered intravenously and subcutaneously. The drug candidate is a long-acting anti-C5 antibody act by targeting complement C5 protein. It is developed based on Xencor's Xmab technology that utilizes Xtend Fc domain to enhance the half-life.

It was under development for treatment of severe pneumonia and acute lung injury or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) with COVID-19
