Rilimogene galvacirepvec is under clinical development by Bavarian Nordic and currently in Phase II for Prostate Cancer. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Prostate Cancer have a 23% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how Rilimogene galvacirepvec’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.

Rilimogene galvacirepvec overview

Rilimogene galvacirepvec (Prostvac) is under development for the treatment of metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer and castration-resistant and non-metastatic prostate cancer. It was also under development for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. It is administered through subcutaneous route. It is sequentially dosed as a combination of two different pox viruses (Prostvac-V and Prostvac-F) which each encode prostate-specific antigen (PSA) plus three co-stimulatory molecule transgenes B7.1, ICAM-1, and LFA-3, known collectively as TRICOM. The vaccine candidate is developed based on PSA-TRICOM, poxvirus-based (vaccinia-fowl pox-TRICOM) technology platform.
