SC-291 is under clinical development by Sana Biotechnology and currently in Phase I for Anti-Neutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibody-Associated Vasculitis (ANCA Vasculitis). According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Anti-Neutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibody-Associated Vasculitis (ANCA Vasculitis) have an 89% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how SC-291’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.

SC-291 overview

SC-291 is under development for the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), relapsed/refractory large B-cell lymphoma including diffuse large cell lymphoma and relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia, non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), primary mediastinal large b-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, marginal zone lymphoma and mantle cell lymphoma and autoimmune diseases including lupus nephritis, extrarenal lupus, and antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis. The drug candidate comprises of allogeneic T cells which are genetically engineered to express the chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) targets cells expressing CD19. It is being developed based on hypoimmune technology. It is administered through intravenous route.
