Risperidone ER is under clinical development by MedinCell and currently in Pre-Registration for Schizophrenia. According to GlobalData, Pre-Registration drugs for Schizophrenia have an 86% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Marketed. GlobalData’s report assesses how Risperidone ER’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.

Risperidone ER overview

MDC-IRM (BEPO-IRM) is under development for the treatment of schizophrenia and unspecified neurologic disorders. The drug candidate is administered through subcutaneous route. It is a long acting injectable formulation. The drug candidate is an extended release formulation developed based on BEPO technology. BEPO consists of copolymers and a biocompatible solvent, where the API is solubilized or suspended, BEPO forms a fully bioresorbable depot once injected. It acts by targeting both 5-hydrotryptamine (5-HT) and dopamine D2 receptors.

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

GlobalData’s Likelihood of Approval analytics tool dynamically assesses and predicts how likely a drug will move to the next stage in its clinical pathway (PTSR), as well as how likely the drug will be approved (LoA). This is based on a proprietary algorithm built from the drugs’ sales forecast, regulatory milestones, cost forecasts, WACC rate and other proprietary data sources found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
