SB-012 is under clinical development by Sterna biologicals and currently in Phase II for Ulcerative Colitis. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Ulcerative Colitis have a 44% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how SB-012’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.
