Sabatolimab is a Monoclonal Antibody owned by Novartis, and is involved in 15 clinical trials, of which 11 are ongoing, and 4 are planned.

sabatolimab elicits its antitumor response by targeting TIM3. The therapeutic candidate binds to TIM3 which results in blockade of TIM3 which futher increases Th1 cells. This induces the production of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) and interferes with all the immune-suppressive functions of Tim-3.

The revenue for Sabatolimab is expected to reach a total of $2.7bn 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 Sabatolimab NPV Report.

Sabatolimab was originated by CoStim Pharmaceuticals and is currently owned by Novartis.

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.
