Rifamycin sodium CR is under clinical development by Cosmo Pharmaceuticals and currently in the Phase II in clinical pathway. The characteristics of the clinical trial as well as other attributes related to the drug, regulations, and company play a fundamental role in ensuring the likelihood of transition that the drug moves from its current development stage to next.

According to GlobalData, the latest event to affect Rifamycin sodium CR’s likelihood of approval (LoA) and phase transition for Diverticulitis took place on 29 Mar 2022, which increased the likelihood that the drug progresses to the next phase in its clinical pathway.

GlobalData uses proprietary data and analytics to provide a complete picture of this assessment in their Rifamycin sodium CR Likelihood of Approval (LoA) and Phase Transition Success Rate (PTSR) Report.
