Setrusumab is a Monoclonal Antibody owned by Mereo Biopharma Group, and is involved in 6 clinical trials, of which 4 were completed, 1 is ongoing, and 1 is planned.

Setrusumab is an anti-sclerostin monoclonal antibody. Sclerostin is a protein, an inhibitor of osteoblastogenesis. It is a glycoprotein secreted by osteocytes. Sclerostin after secretion by osteocytes travels through osteocyte canaliculi to the bone surface where it binds to coreceptors LRP5 and LRP6. It prevents localization with frizzled protein and Wnt signaling, and thereby reducing osteoblastogenesis and bone formation.

The revenue for Setrusumab is expected to reach a total of $803m 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 Setrusumab NPV Report.

Setrusumab was originated by Novartis and MorphoSys and is currently owned by Mereo Biopharma Group. Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical is the other company associated in development or marketing of Setrusumab.

Setrusumab Overview

Setrusumab is under development for the treatment of osteogenesis imperfecta type I, III and IV (also known as Brittle bone syndrome). The drug candidate is administered intravenously through infusion. It is a fully humanized monoclonal antibody targeting sclerostin. It was also under development for hypophosphatasia (HPP), osteoporosis in postmenopausal women and chronic kidney disease.

Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical Overview

Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical (Ultragenyx) develops novel medicines for rare and ultra-rare genetic diseases. It has three marketed products, Mepsevii (vestronidase alfa) for the treatment of Mucopolysaccharidosis (Sly syndrome); Dojolvi (triheptanoin), a highly purified, synthetic, 7-carbon fatty acid triglyceride for long-chain fatty acid oxidation disorders (LC-FAOD) and Crysvita (burosumab), a fully human monoclonal antibody for the treatment of X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH). Its pipeline includes DTX401 for the treatment of glycogen storage disease type Ia, or GSDIa; UX701 for Wilson disease; UX053 for glycogen storage disease type III; and GTX-102 for Angelman syndrome in partnership with GeneTx. It works in partnership with various academic institutes and biotechnology companies to advance its product candidates. Ultragenyx is headquartered in Novato, California, the US.

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.
