Ribociclib succinate is a Small Molecule owned by Novartis, and is involved in 93 clinical trials, of which 32 were completed, 58 are ongoing, and 3 are planned.

Ribociclib (LEE011) inhibits the activity of an enzyme CDK4/6. CDK4 is important in both normal and cancerous cells, LEE011 decreases the ability of the bone marrow to make white blood cells, platelets, and red blood cells. Although these effects are expected to be reversible, they can increase the risk of infection, bleeding and fatigue. CDK4/6 is involved in the process that allows both normal and cancer cells to divide and multiply. Cancer cells are often driven to divide and multiply by abnormalities that increase the activity of CDK4.

The revenue for Ribociclib succinate is expected to reach a total of $24.9bn through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in a clinical process.

GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, drug margins and company expenses. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate valuation, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA) and phase transition success rate (PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
