Smarter leaders trust GlobalData

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.

Ruvembri overview

BIO-101 (SARCONEOS) is under development for the treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) associated with COVID-19 pneumonia and COVID-19 induced respiratory failure, age-related sarcopenia including sarcopenic obesity, respiratory failure caused by the flu virus Influenza, Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and obesity. It is administered orally. The drug candidate is a phytoecdysone, which acts by targeting Mas-related G protein-coupled receptor, developed based on SARCOB platform.
