Rupatadine is a Small Molecule owned by J Uriach Y Compania, and is involved in 18 clinical trials, of which 16 were completed, and 2 are ongoing.

Rupatadine acts as a long-acting, non-sedative antagonist at histaminergic H1-receptors and also antagonizes the platelet-activating factor (PAF). Both histamine and PAF causes bronchoconstriction and lead to an increase in the vascular permeability, acting as a mediator in the inflammatory process, which is responsible for the bronchial hyperreactivity. Rupatadine has other anti-allergic properties also, such as inhibition of mastocytes, degranulation, induced by the immunological and non-immunological stimulants and the inhibition of release of cytokines, particularly the tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) in human mastocytes and monocytes.

The revenue for Rupatadine is expected to reach a total of $218m 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. View the complete picture with the Rupatadine NPV Report.

Rupatadine is currently owned by J Uriach Y Compania. Medexus Pharmaceuticals is the other company associated in development or marketing of Rupatadine.

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, potential applicable patients, drug margins, company expenses, and pricing estimates. 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 rNPV, 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.
